Ah Gu Was Here

This weekend, Ah Gu came back to Boston for a conference on green buildings. I don't know why there's a whole conference on green buildings, but I do like the color...

Rod Dee 3
Ah Gu and his buddy met up with us for dinner on Friday at Rod Dee 3. Mmm Penang...

On Saturday Ronak got us together for a band practice.

Ronak on tabla, Aki on shaker and me on drums. Notice my guitar jacket, which mommy was nice enough to show me in the store and then buy it when I would not stop talking about it.

After practice we went to dinner with Ah Gu again. We went to the Dogwood Cafe, and they had a guitar player to entertain us for dinner!

Aki is tired
Aki got tired from all the music.

Is someone touching my head?

Too bad Ah Gu couldn't stay longer. He's always fun!

I Love the Real Mail

Last week I brought home some of my work from school. Mommy and daddy suggested that maybe I send some to my grandparents. I had to use something called the "mail."

My train system
I call this one "Trains"

Mail for grandparents
I wonder which grandparents are going to get it?

Dinner at Julia's

Last week we had a dinner and a play date at Julia's house. Julia is a friend from my old school, and we both go to new schools now. She has lots of fun toys.

Aki on "sit and spin"
Aki likes the "Sit and Spin." I'm ringing her up at the cash register.

Owen at same play date, in new clothes
If you noticed the different clothes I'm wearing, I had a little mishap with my milk at dinner. Like the leggings? It's the hip new boys look for winter 2009.

Aki likes Julia and her mom
Aki liked Julia's mommy. A lot!

We had lots of fun at Julia's house, and her big brother was nice to all of us. I hope we get to go back again soon! I have to give back the leggings!

Veteran's Day in Acton

Yesterday it was cold outside so we went to do some indoors stuff at the Discovery Museums out in Acton. That's the place where they made a house into a kid's exploring fun super-awesome play space and science museum.

Too cool for words
It might have been cold, but I still needed to wear my shades.

Inside, they had added some new things since the last time I was there.

Bubble wall
Like this bubble wall! Aki looks mad but she just wants to touch it.

There were some old things too...

Pulling the train bell
Pulling the bell inside the train engine

Where is that pesky bell?
Where is that bell anyway?

Reading train stories
Mommy read me and Aki a train book. Aki looks interested but really is just trying to figure out how to eat the book.

We had lots of fun at the museums even if it was really crowded (you can't tell from the pictures, though). If you come visit, maybe we can go there together?

Owen traipsing through the leaves
Is that a fallen tree with a "Live Wires" sign? Too bad daddy was too busy taking pictures to notice.

Ok, hope everyone had a happy middle of the week holiday!

Museum of Science Expedition

Since mommy and Aki went over to help Ms. Katrina with her baby yesterday, Daddy and I went out to the Museum of Science. I just wanted to ride the Green Line train, but then again, the museum is pretty fun too.

Scary butterflies!
While we were waiting to go into the butterfly room, another daddy said that his daughter is scared of butterflies. I never thought of them that way before, but you know, they are kind of scary, all fluttery and unpredictable!

Owen playing pachinko
We hightailed it out of there to go play pachinko.

We roamed around all the exhibits I haven't seen in a long time. There were lots of new ones, but daddy was especially excited to see this one. An ear measuring camera!

Daddy's ear
2.6 inches.

Ear length versus age by gender
This apparently shows that this shows he doesn't have tiny ears after all...

We saw this little windmill. When it's really going, it can power 25 light bulbs, or one big microwave. Hmm... doesn't sound like much.

After all that sciencing, it was time for some good old fashioned dress up fun...

A bee!
Buzz buzz buzz

I'm a turtle!
I'm Spyrtle the Turtle!

Owen in geologist gear
Wearing the geologist gear. Actually I'm looking for the fireman's coat. Do you think I could be a fireman geologist?

It was a fun day at the Museum, and we didn't even see the real new exhibits. Can we go back tomorrow, daddy?
