Heather's been feeling a little uneasy about the new family organization. So on April 1st I took the day off and we went down to the Tech Museum in San Jose for which Mike and Tina gave us a gift certificate for Christmas.
Heather had a blast.
We started with the requisite Chick-Fil-A, since one was in the area. As we pulled in to the parking lot Heather began exclaiming, "I love Chick-Fil-A. We're so close I can almost taste it!" And as soon as we walked in, "This is the best day ever!"
At the Tech Museum she liked playing with the infrared camera:
And anything she could put her hands on, which was pretty much everything:
The downside of the visit was that the place was crawling with school groups with little to no supervision. Nothing particularly bad, but every exhibit was therefore swamped and trying to get a chance to play with it was difficult at times. But, after about 2:30 when all the school groups left it was quite nice. Heather got a chance to have the robot artist draw her picture:
And the spelling robot wrote her name in blocks:
It was fun. We'll have to go back sometime.

I think we went there when we came to CA for Thanksgiving. If it is what I'm thinking of then we had the same school group problem. Will kept waiting for a turn on things and kids would just run up and butt in. We stopped being nice after the first few times and just started telling the kids that we had been waiting and they needed to go somewhere else. No chaperones in sight.
There were chaperones in sight. They were just standing around talking to each other or on their IPhones.
