Sunday morning was off to a roaring start around here.

It was another busy day for the future physicists of america. First they had a demonstration on the importance of friction in our everyday lives. Sure, we're actually relying on friction anytime we walk anywhere, but it's more easily illustrated on sloped, smooth surfaces.

Then, because of all the rain yesterday, daddy was able to show the girls the wonderful changes that water makes to the cohesion of granular material, and how that change makes for great castle building. Allison preferred playing the role of Godzilla to her sisters' sandy Tokyo, however.

Some things just have to be learned on your own though, such as, wet or dry, sand tastes pretty yucky.
