Weekly Kodachrome - The Builder

Pin It

I went with a group of friends to the Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum in Salt Lake on Friday.

It’d been years since I’d been there.

The hands-on exhibits surrounded us like a smorgasbord of awesomeness, and there seemed to be something for everyone. However, our youngest goers seemed to be the most entranced. I saw a friend from New York there as well…always an added bonus when it is unplanned as well as unexpected.

She admitted that her mancubs were forgetting what it was like to live in the suburbs. They went camping and one of them had forgotten how to use a sleeping bag…they also were wondering when the water was going to be shut off, not realizing that most rivers—unlike fountains in NYC parks—don’t have set schedules.

I saw someone else across the way I swore that I knew. I finally approached her and we began to play the Seven Levels of Teachinfourth, but we both finally conceded to a draw after—exhausting all possible options of how we could have known each other—we just couldn’t figure it out, even though we both knew that each of us looked familiar to the other.

Her name was Stacy…and I’m pretty sure that her mom has got it going on.

I returned to my group and sat at the magnetized block table. I saw my friend’s nephew building away and—as he looked up—I snapped the Weekly Kodachrome. It made me grin…also, to be honest, it was hard to pick only one shot from this trip when there were so many I could have used.

So, I did some stalking on your blog over the weekend and I kept thinking as I was reading that I'd bet you were a fellow Utahn...and whadoyaknow (you may have mentioned it in a post and I'm just making up this mutual state connection I was feeling, but let's pretend, okay?)!

LOVE the shot. I should really drag my kids back to Discovery Gateway before they're all too old and cool to enjoy it (openly, anyway).

I hope it's groovy that I'm linking up with a Flickr link by the way.

That's such a great shot. I love the colors in it.

And yeah, you totally cracked me up with that line about Stacy's mom. :-)

You have no idea how popular my mom became when that song first came out...I think it was about 9 or 10 years ago...my niece's did a rendition of it for me that I have on tape somewhere.

Thanks for the throwback in time!

And the pictures are great...as always.
