PhotoHunt: Orange


Just before school started we went on a day trip with the cousins to the Lawrence Hall of Science up in Berkeley. We had never been there before, and we had an absolute blast! This wall of orange pins was the first exhibit we came to. The kids loved pressing their hands and body into the pins to make impressionso of themselves, and they stayed there for about an hour. Fortunately we got to the museum just as it opened, so there were no crowds, and I was able to take picture after picture of them, with no other kids to take turns with.

For more orange things, head on over to the Photo Hunt.

It's about time you're back hunting with us.

I live not too far from Berkeley and I've been meaning 2 visit. We've driven there many times during our nothing-to-do-weekend-let's-drive-to-Berkeley-and-get-something-to-eat days. That is a pretty cool feature/exhibit. I think I'll drag my nephews here some day.

Happy long weekend.

Angela said...

Wow, that is wild! My son loves his face-sized pin toy, but he would go nuts with this one. His favorite thing is to stick his tongue out, not very sanitary!!
