Myth Busters

So the engineering department is having a week of fun activities. Yesterday they did a Myth Buster activity- walking on water. It was so cool. I am not sure what I expected but it well exceeded my expectations, it was totally hands on. They had a pit of goo to walk on. It kind of looks like water from certain angles, but it was 1600Lbs of cornstarch and minimal water. They were inviting everyone to try it. So I striped the boys pants off, rolled up my pants and Liza's pants. We played for 90minutes in the goo. It was fun running across it, hopping in it and getting stuck in it. You just have to keep moving or you get stuck and it is fun to get out with a kid or two hanging on to you :)
My Sister Dian was in on the fun too. Here are a few of my cell phones pictures. (Sorry for the low res pics we forgot a camera.)

Sounds like it was fun. Takes and engineer to make walking on glue (paste) fun. Looks like Rainey wasn't too sure about the stuff.
Eliza and Auntie Di look like they were having a blast.
