Micronaxx The adventures of Finn & Henry


Remembering John Chancellor

As a very young kid, I spent innumerable hours (and gallons of water) playing in the sandbox, where engaged in the rather bizarre ritual of drowning "John Chancellor" (a Fisher-Price figure I named after the then-current anchorman). I also enjoyed taking my Lego armada into the tub for technicolor food coloring battles.

Therefore I'm one happy padre when I see our dudes partaking of the same kinds of fun (well, minus the late Mr. Chancellor), sometimes with the exact same boats! Here's a little gallery from yesterday's building & battling. (Note cameo appearances from the little Lego lion & whale Grandma Nack sent at Easter!)



Chaos Reigns @ The Googleplex

Much like we did in 2015 and then again last year (pics), the boys & I dropped in on Google's annual Take Your Kids To Work Day. After engaging in some sugar-fueled Greco-Roman beatdowns, the boys checked out an animal exhibit (how 'bout that anteater!), Finn got himself a new hoodie, and Hen scored a giant plush Android. 🙂 Check out a bit of the proceedings:

Bonus throwback: Finn doing his best Dad-O impression at the whiteboard during our 2015 visit:


“Let’s go sci-ence!”

Our strange world now demands that we speak up clearly in favor of reason & evidence, so today we did. After hand-crafting some signs with Mom-O, the boys joined us & our friends the Hogarties in our local March for Science. Take a peek!

[Side note: Here's a collection of great signs (and sines & cosines!) seen at marches around the country.]


Easter Scientists 🐰

After stalking Easter eggs & wolfing down their candy contents, the boys headed up to San Francisco with us on Sunday to explore the California Academy of Sciences. Check out a few glimpses of our day:
