*cue The Imperial March*
dun dun dunnn DUN duh dun duh dun dunnn

In a county not so far away, there lies a place for exploration. While many DVD/Blue Ray players and gaming consoles fight for the attention of many males (and some really cool females) ages 4-55 during the heat of a Kansas summer, there exists an exhibit that not only appeals to this group, it calls to this group. Yes, the force is strong with this group.  Just the mere mention of Star Wars, Lucas Films, props, costumes and models in the same sentence is enough to cause a noticeable disturbance in the force and send the Jedi's running.  And run we did.
This is just a fraction of the photos I took.
Quite a treat to be greeted by Zam Wensel, a Death Star Trooper and a Rebel (she)Trooper.

Here's a couple of Rusty's favorite birthday gifts from yesterday:


Cade's been in a bit of funk with actual hits lately.  He's been able to get on base most games by taking pitches to the back, helmet, leg, etc., or walking, but these were solid base hits.

Venus in Transit

Did you guys get a chance to see Venus cross in front of the sun on Tuesday?
No?  Awww...too bad.  You're going to have to wait another 105 years to catch it again.
We were able to see it live, in person at Washburn.  It was soo cool.  The Physics and Astronomy department had an open house with a couple of serious telescopes out tracking Venus' path.

MIAA Night at T-Bones Game

So last Saturday was MIAA night at the T-Bones game in KC.  Once again, Washburn had a great turn out and the weather was pretty nice.  A little toasty at first, but beautiful by the 5th or 6th inning.

What tailgate in KC is complete without QT drinks?
