Science and Magic

What a great event packed weekend it has been! Too much happened to post at once so I'll just share this part for now....

Jim's parents were with us for a few days and we had a lot of fun together. One of the things we did was to check out a nearby Tom Farms. It was fantastic! One of our favorite things to do there was watching the magic show. When he came to the part of making his assistant float in the air he said he needed a volunteer from the audience, somebody really strong. As soon as he said that I knew he would be dragging Jim up on the stage, and he did. ;)

Jim and the boys also spent some fun time together working on science experiments. Jim's work allows him to do community service while on the clock. For the last couple years he has been teaching science to a 5th grade public school class. At the end of the year he organizes a science fair for them. While he prepared for the science fair our boys got to benefit from helping him out. They had so much fun doing them together!
Hot water, dry ice, and food coloring (for effect) makes a great fog.

With added corn syrup. Anyone want a drink?

Here are the links to a couple of video's of Jim and the kids having fun with dry ice:
