On Saturday, September 5th we held a free pancake breakfast for our members. We just wanted to say thanks!
Two of our board members, Bruce Crouter and Paul Korns, plus our Director of Exhibits and Programming, John Snell, as well as our Executive Director Sandy Baumgartner served the food to the crowd. Here’s Sandy serving up some sausages:
Discovery Jones came out to say hi to the kids. High fives and hugs were the order of the day:

There are all sorts of videos on the internet of dancing babies, but we have a Dancing Sport Scientist! Let me introduce you to Keir:
We do our best to always entertain, so here is Kim, our Manager of Corporate Development, and Dave from Visitor Services showing off their pancake flipping and catching skills:
They got pretty good at it and Kim could flip them pretty high before Dave had problems catching them:
They did this for hours! So eventually, we had two pancakes going at a time. That, um, didn’t last too long though, ha!
(Click on any of those photos to make them bigger — and in particular check out the face of the lady on the left in this one!)
Adding to the general fun of the day was Jessica performing our Wow Stage Show outside in the tent for the kids:
We were grateful to have such beautiful weather, and we enjoyed getting to know the 400 or so folks that were able to make it out to this event. I even ran into some of the Masney kids and their mom Angie!
