Happy Pi Day!

Today is Pi Day. You know Pi.

As in .

As in 3.14159 . . .

So, today is March 14th. Or 3-14. Or Pi Day.

It's essentially a holiday for nerds. So we celebrated it. Because, well, do the math.

We talked about what Pi is.
We talked about why today is Pi Day.
We did some fun Pi activities.
We went out for Pizza Pie (and root beer) as a family.
And we're making Toll House Pie.

So, happy Pi Day, everyone!

Celebrate Pi Day!

With the use of computers, Pi has been calculated to over 1 trillion digits past the decimal. Pi is an irrational number meaning it will continue infinitely without repeating. I also love pizza and root beer! -Kelly =)

Too bad you weren't in Salt Lake to go to a pizza place we have here called The Pie, their logo is even the symbol for pi.

Oh how I love that you just embrace that inner nerdiness and run with it! ;) It's nice to have some one "running" with me!

Well I work at a Math and Engineering charter school, so we even all ate Pie that day. We like to celebrate Pi in a big way, but we're known as the nerdy school and we're ok with that. No sports, but we do have a computer gaming club, debate club, science club, and the like!!

Jared and I are both sitting in the office at the moment and I just read this post to him. His comment? "I wish we celebrated Pi Day. Don't you?"

I think I'd much rather celebrate Pi Day than Valentine's Day.

Kelly, whenever we meet, we should eat pizza and root beer. Pizza is one of my Dad's favorite foods.

Emily, I'm guessing the pantry was more full then? :P

Kim, I think I've eaten there. Is there one in Provo? Or did there used to be?

Jessica, that's a big compliment coming from you! :)

D'Arcy, how awesome is that! I would LOVE a debate club. LOVE it.

April, simple and fun--my favorite. :)

Rachelle, hilarious!
