.kaiya visits the bradbury science museum.

We met up with Grandpa Dave at the Bradbury Science Museum, which is located in Los Alamos.  Mommy has never been there, so it was a first for both her and Kaiya.  It's not a big museum, but there was a lot of fun things to look at and read about.  
Here is Kaiya with Fat Man and Little Boy, which are models of the two bombs that hit Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  Little Boy, the little green one, is the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 during WWII.  Little Boy was a designed and built at Los Alamos.  Fat Man, the yellow and black one, was the bomb that dropped on Nagasaki on August 9, 1945.  It was tested at Trinity Site in southern New Mexico.
They also had a seismology detector (?? earthquake reading device ??) and had some printouts of the recent earthquakes.  Here's the earthquake that happened on Easter Sunday.
And this is the earthquake in Chile that caused the Hawaii Tsunami 2010 (or when the world watched the water recede a few feet on the Big Island).
Here's Kaiya talking with Grandpa Dave...
And posing with a statue...I forget who it's of, though.
They also had some pretty cool panoramic shots of White Rock and Los Alamos...
And here is Kaiya generating some electricity.  If you look at the electricity meter, the red line is almost full!
Kaiya and daddy posing...
And Kaiya and Grandpa Dave leaving their mark in the guest book!
After touring the museum, we headed over to the bookstore where Grandpa Dave bought her a mini Hello Kitty keychain for her stroller and a Hello Kitty book.  By the way, Kaiya is all about the Hello Kitty now since mommy and daddy has decided to make her 1st birthday Hello Kitty themed.  Can you believe we're already planning her 1st birthday?

And on another note, I'm slowly catching up.  Sorry about the lag...but here is what's to come:
Vegas visit, some Funny Face Tuesdays, her SEVEN month photo shoot, and a few others.
