After priming them with "National Treasure" (both of them) we took a brief trip up to Washington, DC. The boys loved it!
Green Tree Frog tadpole:
Older frogs, in a larger watergarden (same house):
The boys got Crazy Carts for their birthday, which is also the first day of school. So they had a chance to play with them the weekend before...
We went to the keys; it was windy & rough so we mostly did touristy-stuff, including the new "Aquarium Encounters" in Marathon which is pretty cool.
We stopped by Animal Kingdom on the way up to Neptune Beach; Jake loved the hippo, Drew was more into the rides.
In Neptune Beach we made up for lost time, fishing 5 days in a row. The weather was great and the fish were hot; we tagged 2-3 every day, easily hitting Graddaddy's goal of 10 tags for the week. We also picked up 2 starfish, 2 stingrays, a big redfish, and saw lots of dolphins and other sea life.
3D Printed Fidget Spinners
I got these designs off of a site called http://www.thingiverse.com, where you can design templates and share them with the public, or download someone else’s. If you have a 3D printer, I highly suggest you use this site. I managed to find some designs and press the bearings and/or steel balls into them. Enjoy!

I am out of kits and will not restock Wiiceiver due to the lack of good wireless nunchucks available. I am working on Wiiceiver X, a replacement wireless handheld controller & receiver, and can hopefully release specs & instructions in the Spring.
I am also out of "upgrade" kits, but you can also download the latest software and upgrade your own device at your convenience.
Introducing the wiiceiver! A drop-in "plug and play" replacement for a traditional RC receiver, designed for use on an electric skateboard. It has 2 standard 3-pin servo connectors (single ESC, dual ESC, or ESC + BEC) and a port for a Nintendo Wii Nunchuck.
... unfortunately all kits are sold out.
