Tulip Festival

We went to the tulip festival as a family this time to show Elizabeth the Elizabeth tulip. While we were there we got to see the vintage car parade (pretty cool!)

 

Elizabeth and I ran home to go to karate - but it was cancelled due to belt testing. Apparently we haven't quite got the hang of being karate parents yet. In any case we decided to head back to the tulip festival. While we were walking around we noticed that the science expo at Booth was on so we decided to check it out. The kids got to see what fireworks look like before they are exploded. Elizabeth, Matthew and I all got matching air-brush tattoos courtesy of Parks Canada. You could choose an endangered species (we went with a monarch butterfly). DNA was extracted from a banana and built out of licorice and marshmallows. Guess which activity was more popular??? They also got to try to modify a vehicle with playdough to reduce drag. There was a mini wind tunnel to help them test it out. Let's just say that drag was NOT reduced.

 

It was a pretty fun day!
