Yeah, Science!

We recently headed downtown to the Austin Children's Museum to see a physics exhibit on loan from the San Francisco Exploratorium.
 
One display was meant to show how tornados work. Jackson and Olivia were entranced by the steam seeping up through holes in the floor. 

 
It was fun to roll objects across the turntable and see in which direction they spun out.

 
Jackson rode the momentum machine around and around until he got a little dizzy.
 
 
We also visited other favorite areas in the museum. We took care of the cows...
 
 
...built pirate ships...

 
and made pigs fly.

 
After expanding our brains, we expanded our tummies. I had some Gardein chicken tenders, which I served on baguettes slathered with mango guacamole. On the side, some pan-fried plantain slices dipped in chimichurri sauce.
