Yesterday was downright pleasant.
Josh and I were BOTH OFF (which felt like a novelty, it’s been a while!). And they let us sleep in — I didn’t get up until 8:00 which for me is downright ridiculous. G&C quietly watched Free Willy until we felt like emerging. Many Saturdays, the kids have sports but the soccer season does not start until next weekend so I think everyone savored the ability to relax a bit.
When everyone was finally up, I suggested the zoo, and we packed up and went! We rented a family bike/ferry thing and road around the big loop through the Africa/Asia sections. While there was still a pretty impressive tantrum over a $40 bubble wand (G and no we did not give in), I have to say everything is more fun these days than it used to be. I have to say I love the ages the kids are right now (4 / almost 8 / 9.75).
Day was capped off by sushi + Pictionary. I slightly regret not working out but whatever, that bike ferry thing was tiring! I also started this book:
I don’t read a lot of sci fi but this one so far is very calm and lovely and compelling.
