Bubbles And Fun Sticky Explosive Things

Yesterday afternoon, when the boys got out of school, we split for the State Park for a little bit.
It was the perfect place for Kolin to work on the finishing touches of his Science Fair project, which because Kolin is who he is..always has to be something explosive and messy.

This year had something to do with soda, Mentos, Alka-Seltzer and balloons.
And ahhh, yeah..it was very wet and very sticky and as far as Soda/Alka-Seltzer/Balloons are concerned....explosive is a pretty good descriptive word.

Here's my two favorite mad scientists right now, look at that concentration will ya...

As you can see here..Alka-Seltzer dropped into a bottle of soda will blow the lining right out of an innocent balloon...

On a more gentler note...bubble blowing was pretty fun too, and alot less messy. :0)

I "heart" pretty bubbles.

I "heart" you guys and gals alot too and because I do, I will be posting the final summertime news clue tomorrow sometime.

Have a great day everyone!!

Love, Kim

Hmmm, close but with a twist! How about a beach house for the family and a family member is getting married . . . OR. . . you are BUYING the beach house . . . OR . . . you are inviting ME to the beach house!!! Well, I guess I have to wait for the next clue :o)

Kim, as always, you captured great moments....

Kolin's getting tall - how can that happen????

Haha, is it bad that my 30-something year old husband and I experiment with the Mentos and soda thing from time to time? We've been successful at getting the soda to shoot up higher than the roof of our house.
Also, I stopped by the site earlier when I was at work and ended up listening to your entire Beach Boys playlist while I worked. It brought a ray of sunshine into my dreary day at the office. Thanks!

So, Kolin, you and your dad looked pretty serious in that experiment pic! Now I see why you went to the park...all that sticky stuff on your family picnic wouldn't be so nice!! :) I saw you on tv last night, Kolin. Was watching American Idol and Slash was on there. :o)

Kim, I can't wait for the final clue. So, are you waiting for a certain number of guesses, or the right one, before telling us the answer?

Believe or not, I'm going back to bed. Had to get up extra early to see the eldest off to Wash. DC for his class trip. Didn't sleep well so I'm actually going to try and sleep for a tad.

Have a great day!
