Octopus Outing

The kids slept in a little bit today, and we all got up a bit after 8:00. The kids have the week off school, so there was no rush to get ready. I had intended to take the day off with M-lady, but I had to go in to work this morning. M-lady and the kids had breakfast and then headed out for a trip up to the Aquarium of the Bay in San Francisco, on Pier 39, where they had recently acquired three Giant Pacific Octopi.

They had a good time at the Pier and the Aquarium, had a solid lunch, and returned home. I was back home by the time they arrived, around 2:00. I was able to spend some time hanging out with the kids, during which they told me about the outing, until I needed to call into a meeting around 3:30.

Buster played with the iPad and my computer for a bit in the afternoon, and Bud mostly read. Bud did his piano with M-lady around the time I got off the phone, and complained of not feeling well. After his piano practice, I discovered that he was running a low-grade fever. We gave him a dose of Tylenol, and he was low-key for most of the evening.

The kids and I watched a little bit of TV while M-lady ran an errand. We watched an episode of a new game show on the History Channel about jousting. I skipped the drama stuff, and we mostly just watched the practices and the jousting itself. Bud loved it, and when M-lady arrived home with some pool noodles to be used as brooms for Quidditch, Bud immediately started using one for jousting.

We had dinner a little bit later, and then showers and snack and bed time. The kids were pretty easy to put to bed, and Buster was asleep about ten minutes after the lights went out.
