Paper Folding, Math Hacks and Yummy Geography

We had a great lunch with the boys. Some of the activities that kept us
busy included...

- Nibbling on toast until it was shaped like a US State (can you
identify: 2 Commonweath's of Virginia, 1 Rhode Island and a shoe?).

- Attempting to beat Briteny Gallivan's paper folding record [1]. We
got stumped at 8 folds.

- Spencer taught us a nifty hack for multiplying any set of two digit
numbers.

- I got trounced in the connect-the-dots-to-make-squares game (by a 9
year old, no less). At least I held my own in tic-tac-toe.

A fun time was had by all.
