Our kids got this tube thing with Mentos for making diet coke shoot up in the air for Christmas. It was at World Market for something like $7, and I was pretty sure it would be a lot of bang for the buck, excitement-wise. You do not, of course, need to buy the tube contraption at World Market to use mentos and diet coke to create excitement....I guess the point of the tube is that it holds the mentos in place for you until you're ready to drop them all down? Anyway. Much fun was had by all making a diet coke fountain in our front yard.
We tried to get a great picture of all the kids together, but Louis didn't want to be in the picture. So we got these instead:
And then we went to the park. It was cold. And it was the middle of the day, so there are nasty shadows on all my pictures.
