and A REALLY COOL SCIENTIST?
You get a birthday party that all the guests say, "I want a Science Party too!"
Dayton is really into science, more specifically inventing things and knowing how things work. So in planning for his party, being a teacher, I suggested a science party. I really intended on hiring someone to come do the party for me. A friend of ours works at Lawrence Livermore Lab and decided that he and his wife could do it for us. Un-be-lievable!
They demonstrated some cool chemical reactions and explained why it happens.
Then we moved to bathroom and lit some "volatile solution" on fire. Always a crowd pleaser!
This is called "elephant toothpaste" and requires chemicals that we cannot go out a buy...ooooh, coooool!
This is the cornstarch/water or "quick sand" mixture that looks like a liquid but feels like a solid. He is domonstrating how to run on it.
This is D doing the "happy dance" after opening his presents.
"Thaaaaank Yoooooou EVERYBODY!"
How do you thank someone when words and all the money just doesn't express your gratitude?
This is how it all ended... E, D and Dad having a "quick sand" war...
...and the birthday boy soaking his feet in pajamas that are 4 sizes too small.
Happy Birthday Dayton!
