Am I suposed to eat Zach or not?
Done with Zachary
While Daddy and Mommy were out walking around in the last post we were playing with our friend Felix and we also went to the Heureka Science center. At the Science center there were a lot of things to do there was game where you can stand beside your partner and move from side to side and catch thing or bounce things. Zachary here seems a bit puzzled - I wonder why!

This is a pretty cool game, there are six levels.

this is a nice Black Licorice ice cream (not so good to Zach though!)
Here is a picture of a big ball you can only roll it if it is wet.
Here I am on one of those bikes where you are biking on the wire and are balanced by a weight.
There was also a place where you could lift a car with pulleys, there were also basketball rats but we didn't get to see a game because we were to busy checking out the other things but they actually like it. There was also a hydrogen rocket that when you spin the wheel it gains pressure it counts down and blasts of. There was another thing that was like that but when you lifted this ball with the string attached to the pulley and let go of it it sent a tennis ball almost up to the roof like the rocket. There was a thing where it was like a big drum with loose plastic on one side and on the other was a hole and on the roof there was a banner  and when you hit the plastic hard enough then the air waves pushed the banner. There was actually a magic carpet. We came at the right time because there was a special  out door exhibit on dinosaurs!
Here is a picture of a air canon that Felix designed and made himself. We shot those helicopter maple seeds and Felix's sock he usually shoots carrot and potatoes.
How does a straight rod fly through a curved slot in glass?

Here is a video of me being like I was on the moon.
