We had a wonderful time at the Science and Engineering Festival on the National Mall last weekend. It was a huge event with hundreds of booths staffed by various educational institutions, professional organizations and companies. Every booth had some kind of hands-on, interactive project.
The kids made catapults, created Lego robots, simulated earthquakes, looked at parasites in a microscope, tested their intelligence vs a monkey, measured their lung capacity and more! It was so exciting to see so many kids and families excited about science!
Then we went out for dessert. Benjamin and I had cupcakes. I've never been a huge fan of cake, in general, but these cupcakes were so tempting, that I decided to give one a try.
Benjamin chose Red Velvet and I had Chocolate with Peanut Butter icing. Holy deliciousness. That was the best cupcake I have ever had in my entire life.
Jeff and Claire had gelato.
Apparently it was also quite good, but I still can't get my mind off that cupcake.
