You Don’t See That Every Day

Walker is fond of picking up key phrases of ours. Frequently we hear “You don’t see that every day,” which can be used for a very broad range of things. In this case, I think it’s appropriate to describe the video below (Gigi, you will need to go to the blog to see it…) from our first visit to San Francisco’s incredible Exploratorium museum.

We had a great time at the Exploratorium and it reminded me of summers past when I hung out as a 13 year old with my cousin Jane and her college-age friends. It was SO FUN! I just walked in and went to the Tactile Dome whenever I wanted. I took a few rides on the swing that hangs from the ceiling of the incredibly tall building (which very few folks know about) and would gag when Jane had her required cow eye dissection duty (which they still do each hour). But now, I get to see the museum through the eyes of a four year old who loves to bang on the xylophones in the sound proof rooms and see how water reacts to sound waves and how the sand from Ocean Beach creates “hair” on really big magnets.
