Ancient Egypt

Yes, we traveled to Ancient Egypt yesterday! (In the TARDIS!) Okay, so we went to OMSI (The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry), Seleia's favorite place.  Seleia had a lab on the physics of sound (more on that later!) and after we all headed up to the Lost Egypt exhibit (Elora's words? "VERY cool!") where we met "Annie", a mummified mystery 16 year old girl who was embalmed after being found dead in the Nile River 2,000 years ago.  (I must be rather morbid, I was a tinge disappointed that she was completely wrapped in linens.) Big Sis asked about a million questions while her sisters wandered around learning about hieroglyphics and the use of mirrors to create light inside a pyramid. We're dragging Daddy back to explore Egypt more thoroughly very soon.
