A place to share the fun and interesting things I've seen at Wheaton Labs.

A misty morning.

I almost finished peeling a whole tree

I also love all the signage here at Wheaton Labs. It's such an efficient way to convey information to the swaths of people who come through.

Just as I enjoy the signage at wheaton labs, I similarly enjoy the fridge magnets

One of my son's favorite videos is of the log gate. He kept saying, "Dad, I'm surprised a kid like me can move this thing!"

Part of the purpose of the trip was to show my son Wheaton Labs. He loves the videos, and he loved getting to see everything (and everyone) in person.

Or first night there, Arthur loved the idea of helping with the cherry prep, and pitted a whole bowl of 'em. Clayton was kind enough to cede the pitting station in exchange for the help.

Arthur was right at home in the FP house. Very on-brand.
