Little Man and I made bridges out Legos for a Cub Scout requirement.

Grandma and Grandpa came up to visit.  We took them to an antique
shop.  On  the way out, we saw this Lamborgini.

The owner came out and was cool about us oogling his car.  (I would be
glad too if someone oogled my $220,000 car)

He had a small portable typewriter.  The trunk was in the front.  It barely
fit the portable typewriter.

Some else asked what the car was.  The owner said something like
metallic sunset pearl.

Little Man called it….. orange.

Even during pre-game warm-ups, Little Man found time
to Tebow.

He had a good game, scored 4 points, made some good
decisions with the ball and kept the turnovers to a minimum.

Their team won by 20+ points. (the other team was not nearly
as pushy as the team last week)

Little Lady created a new super hero persona for herself.
I think she called herself Word Girl.

We did science experiments for the Den meeting.

Mostly another parent and I did experiments involving water and air
pressure.

I did the one where you light some newspaper, put it in a bottle
and place a hard boiled egg on top.  The burning will consume the
air inside the bottle and create lower air pressure.  The egg gets
sucked into the bottle.   Cool.

The kids like this and all the experiments.

A nice quiet evening with my love…  just the two of us, an 12 Girl Scouts.

As always, Mom ran a great Girl Scout meeting.  (she had about 3 hours
of material for a one hour meeting)

We bought Gyros, Pita and Fetta for all the girls to try.  It went over
very well!  (they are doing Greece for their Thinking Day country presentation
this year)

Here Mom is trying to get the girl’s attention.

For the first time in my career, I got to see
the transmitter.

This is the primary conduit for the transmitter feed
which sends the signal up a 1000 foot tower.

(there is a weird hum in the room)

They SAID this was the cover to an old boiler.

I am certain that it holds a massive creature
of the dark night.

Little Man and I went to church.  Surprisingly, neither of us burst
into flames.  (although I was a little singed)

This is the control center of the services. 

They had an audio guy, a lighting guy, a video guy and a
director for the cameras.  Quite a setup.

Little Man was in a rough game.  The other team
was especially pushy.  The kid in the yellow was
a punk.

Little Man attended a skate party for his friend.
(our kids have more busy social calendars than we do)

This was Little Lady’s first couple’s skate! 
(I need to run a full background check on him)

We had a celebration at work for wonderful Super Bowl coverage.

They made a very cool video montage.  Jimmy Fallon was in town
last week, it was hillarious.

Jimmy Fallon:
“Canada has the most expensive hot dog in the world.  It is
made of lobster with truffle sauce and costs $100. 

Why would I want to pay $100 for a hot dog when I can go
to Lucas Oil and buy two hot dogs for $100.”

Little Man hoops it up during practice.
