It's the Spring of the Lingering Lion 'n' Loitering Lamb!

I read the news today, oh boy! (Beatles) Yep, and it said Spring is here. Problem is, the danged lion doesn't want to make way for the lamb of March. It snowed. The kids had half a day. So, when Momma Nature hands us snowflake-shaped lemons, we know what to do… 

First up was lunch at the diner, followed by two science projects executed by Curious Gavin.
Put some vinegar in the bottom of an empty water bottle. Measure a couple tablespoons of baking soda into a deflated balloon.
Place stem of balloon over bottle and watch what happens when the soda drops into the vinegar.
Then, fill a bowl with water. Fold over the corner of a paper towel and drop it into a bowl of water. Drizzle on food coloring.
Art in the making!
Gramps and Gav hit Wii after science. Aubs and I hit the cucina. No lemonade, but our Sugar made her first scratch crust 'n' pie.
It bubbled over. That means it's spectacular.
Happy Spring. Really, this is RealTime; but Mambo says, "I sense the loitering lamb."
