Our annual “Pi Day” celebration had humble beginnings. Five years ago, Ben and two of his friends (one of whom was a math teacher) each baked a pie on March 14th to honor the irrational number. Over the past five years, “Pi Day” has grown in the quality and quantity of entries. This year, 12 delicious pi-themed pies were up for the title of Champion. I can happily report that me and Rich’s Blueberry Banana Cream Pie with an almond crust was crowned the winner.
Creating our pie was a true team effort. Rich made the crust and I made the filling. We even used the Pi formula to calculate the surface area of our pie in blueberries (hence the 254 on our pie). I think baba Brock felt really proud of his or her parents as we added our names to the coveted Pi Day trophy.
