This weekend was a very "scientific" weekend!
Yesterday we watched the solar eclipse (did anyone else see it)? DH made a pinhole camera out of a cardboard box (4-5) so we could see the eclipse (you are not supposed to look directly at the sun). We walked up to a lookout area near our house and there were lots of people from the neighborhood there also watching the eclipse. Someone let us borrow their welding mask to be able to look directly at the sun (1-3). One of our neighbors had some cool goggles (6). DH took a cool picture of the eclipse, with the moon covering most of the sun so the sun looks like a moon (7). He used a telephoto lens (you can see the camera setup in 5). I wore the polka dot blouse (which kind of reminded me of little suns), red cascading cardigan, Gap Always Skinny jeans and red Converse.
Saturday we went to Cal Academy (8-13). I wore my White House Black Market navy and white floral peasant blouse, Paige Hidden Hills white bootcut jeans, Tulle navy peacoat, Ugg wedge sandals, and my favorite Kate Spade orange slice bag, because they feed orange slices to the butterflies. I remember taking DD there when she was 8 months old and just starting to sign (before she could talk, we taught her sign language and she started signing at 7 months). We were at the top of the biodome looking down and she started signing "orange" excitedly. I looked down and way at the bottom was a plate of sliced oranges for the butterflies. I remember that because it was one of the first times when I was impressed by what a smart cookie she is (and by how good her vision is--she still notices every small detail even now--she takes after her radiologist dad)! She still loves oranges--she kept wanting to carry my orange slice bag!
