Tuesday Night Fun

Erik and I have been watching tons of Mythbusters on Netflix lately.

Truth be told, I would rather watch Mythbusters than a chick flick.

That said, even though they warn you not to try any of what you see at home, we figured this one was safe.

Which one you ask?Well, just wait a minute and I'll get to it.
But first, we decided to invite our friends over to watch. While we were waiting for them to traverse the length of the road from their house to ours......we decided to run some races. My kids love to run races and Erik got in on the fun too:

And again!

We're still working on sportsmanship. This is the "he pushed and pulled me and so I lost" face:
So can you guess the experiment we're recreating?

That's right. Mint Mentos and Diet Coke fountains.
The crowd waits in expectation.

Two Mentos:

Four Mentos:

Um...more than four :

Oh yes. Good cheap fun. Much better than actually drinking the stuff.

Oh man, I love Diet Coke but this does look fun. :) I hope I can get my kids to be excited about such an event. It looked like a blast to me.

Love, love, love! I remember my dad running races with us when I was four and five. I was always frustrated that he would win, but at the same time delighted that he was so fast. :-) They will treasure this stuff.
