Carousels and DNA

Friday, August 19, 2011
My aunt, Karen, and cousins, Joanna and Elenya, have been visiting for the last couple of weeks from Texas. Karen came to help get grandma transitioned home from from assisted living after having knee and leg surgery. While they were here, I had the pleasure of hanging out with two very cool kids. We shopped, went to the pool, and I got to introduce them to spa pedicures.

Tuesday I got to show them where I work, and we spend most of the day doing hands-on science activities in the lab. I had a blast showing them what I do and teaching them about DNA and genetics.

Check out those pipette skills!
I am so glad to have gotten the chance to get to know these girls better!
