We went to OMSI today. Always fun. We finally saw the Amazon exhibit. So cool. Here Tania is inside of an aquarium. Not with piranhas, but it was still neat. Wouldn't it be cool if there were piranhas? They'd be bumping against the glass trying to eat her head.

Here she is playing some sort of game that teaches about how the Amazon changed over meelions of years. It actually used to come out on the west side of South America, but eventually the Andes mountains grew and diverted the river north.

Hubba, hubba!!!

We also saw a Planetarium show called Pacific Northwest Skies. It was pretty cool. We got to see all the constellations that we would see at night here if it weren't so damn cloudy. And if I would ever go outside at night when it's so damn cold all the time.

In other happenings, Tania has opened a cafe called Family Cafe.

I ate there and had a fabulous pizza, rainbow pasta, and cookies.

And some tea.

She was kind enough to give me a tour of her facilities. These are the beverages.

And this is the kitchen.

Now, I think her best business feature is that she'll deliver her food in a picnic basket to you. Lovely. However, I think she may need to develop a catchy marketing scheme. The one she has now consists of begging people to eat at her cafe and promising to make them whatever they want. it seems desperate is all I'm saying.

Lu has been sick, but she's truckin' on in all her snot-nosed glory.

I can't resist but tell the whole world (as if) that my husband, Joey, is at a math conference right now and he's really excited about it. Nerd alert! Nerd alert! I actually wanted to go with him, but didn't want to bring everybody. From what I gather, the conference is about mathematical principles in nature that make things aesthetically pleasing being applied to design to make homes and furniture aesthetically pleasing. I think it sounds really cool.

Tonight, we watch Borat.

Thanks for the good words!

Erin - I do love my Babyhawk! More than my Ergo...gasp!

Jes - I'm glad there are other math dorks out there!

Summer - The aquarium was neat! Tania got to be up close and personal with her people, the fish. (She's a Pisces.)
