We took the kids to the Museum of Science today. Fun time.

They have a totally awesome exhibit on animation, sponsored by the Cartoon Network. [[livejournal.com profile] toonhead_npl, why haven't you posted about this yet?] They have a whole bunch of stop-motion cameras on animation stands, and you can make your own shorts. It was a blast! There is a camera set up to take a picture of a particular room every four seconds for a total of 14 shots; Alissa and I made a movie of us gliding across the floor. There's a setup with a bunch of cameras to do a "Gap ad" multi-angle freeze frame; Tani and I jumped in midair at just the right moment. There's a Foley setup (which was a little disappointing). My biggest complaint is that you can't copy your creations onto a memory card, USB drive, or email to take them home with you.

There were many other observant Jewish families there; at lunchtime, you looked around and half the tables had ad hoc tablecloths and pretty much the same food: Tam Tams, fruit, cheese....

Tani turns six in two weeks, so this was probably his last time at the water table in the Discovery Room area for fives-and-under. That was kinda poignant.
