Science Fair

Today Jacob participated in his first science fair. 
Jacob is showing his friend Will all about his science project, he was so proud of it it.
This is the picture collage Jacob and I put together. 
This is Jacob's write up. I asked him leading questions, but he typed it with spelling help: 

Home Made Lava Lamp
My mom and I looked on the computer to find a fun science experiment. We found this lava lamp. I thought it looked fun. So my mom and I went to Target to get what we needed. After we got home. I first washed out a pickle jar and filled it one third full of water. Then I added a few drops of blue food coloring.  I stirred it to make sure it was blue enough. Then I filled the rest of the jar with oil. A few minutes later after letting it separate and settle, I added an Alka-Seltzer this made it bubble like a lava lamp. I had a fun time learning something new.

Voodoo Doughnuts

Spring break weekend we took a little adventure to Portland. We checked into our hotel right in the heart of it all. We walked to dinner at this great Thai restaurant. And for desert we walked to the famous Voodoo Doughnuts. 
The boys are picking the perfect doughnut from the automated lazy susan. It would stop so the employees could take out a doughnut or wipe up some crumbs and both boys were so worried the machine was broken. The expression on their face was priceless.
 Kelly picked and enjoyed a "Portland cream" doughnut.
 Jacob chose the doughnut that was covered, I mean covered in an assortment of sprinkles. It is exactly how he would have sprinkled it himself!
 Andrew decided on the doughnut covered in Minni M&Ms. He picked at it, ate lots of the M&Ms off but thankfully didn't finish the whole thing. 
I picked the "Voodoo" doughnut. Its belly was raspberry filled and it was so yummy. . .  I did finish all of my doughnut even thought I shouldn't have!
 Thanks Debbie for this recommendation. We are so glad you suggested it. --emily

Skate King

During spring break we went rollerskating with our friends.
We went to our local roller rink "Skate King." This is the same skating rink that I used to go to as a young person. It still looks exactly the same. It also smells exactly same, like "Aussie" hair spray. If you are a child of the eighties, you know what I am talking about. Purple bottle pink kangaroos!
The boys spent lots of time like this. . . 
and this!
The skates are even the same. I think I might have been wearing the same size sevens I put on years ago.
The boys had a fantastic time. They cant wait to go again. --emily
