To the Moxi by Train

We had an "All Play" trip (including "Uncle" Jon) to the new kids' museum in Santa Barbara, the Moxi, which, amazingly enough, is right across the tracks from the Santa Barbara Amtrak Station. How convenient! Trevor, Matt, and Jamie took most of the kids by train, and Jen, Tracy, and Lynn drove down with the rest. Turns out the Moxi is very cool, kids and adults had a blast. In the Moxi's own words: "Our mission is to ignite learning through interactive experiences in science and creativity. As Santa Barbara’s newest hands-on destination for families and curious minds of all ages, MOXI is a place where you can explore and discover new things about the world around you, ask questions, seek answers, and have a blast doing so." We had lunch at Enterprise Fish (always fun!), then blasted home - Serafina had a 3:30pm music rehearsal for Annie (yup, she's doing it again, this time a full production with Kelrik; Sandy, too).

All the photos are here.

We took over the cafe car.

"Uncle" Jon met up with us - bearing cookies!

Matteo got some time at the controls of an electron in a hydrogen atom.
