Weekend Adventures: Lawerence Hall of Science, UC Berkeley

We had a fun weekend starting with Kyla's last day of ballet at the current studio - we are switching to a new studio with some friends after Thanksgiving.  In the afternoon we made the trek to Berkeley to visit the Lawerence Hall of Science.  It was so cool!  We could have spent a lot more time here.  Our ultimate goal was to see some different insects, since Kyla was on I for insect this last week.  They had an animal room with insects and lots of other cool animals.  Much to my dismay, both Keanan and Kyla HELD a tarantula!! The kids also made some cool creations in the ingunity lab.  Afterwards we had some yummy Thai food in downtown Berkeley.
Oh my gosh!!
Playing with some ferrofluid
climbing in some DNA

bonding some molecules
The view of the bay was amazing!  Can you see the Golden Gate bridge?
On Sunday our church had special guests from Liberia!  The music was so cool and the message inspiring.  We had an all church BBQ lunch afterward with some of the best chicken I have ever had, and then we all gathered around the ebola relief container to pray it off.  The ambulance we are sending in the container was there too!!  It's so awesome to be a part of the work God is doing on the other side of the world.

Here are some other pictures from the week:
