We had a marvelous day today! John and his two, and me and my two, went to Pike Place Market and took an Argosy Harbor cruise. I'd show pictures, but my computer is on the fritz, but I will post them when I can. On the cruise, we saw sea lions! They were resting themselves on a...thing...in the water.
All four kids were awesome, with extremely little, if any, whining....in fact, I can't really remember any! We got nuts at the nut shop (almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, and pistachios), fish and chips at Ivar's, mini donuts, and the kids each got a flower. I found Ben a sun hat and a union suit (I justify that purchase in two ways. one, he needed them, and two, I am supporting a local artist(they were hand painted(but washable))) (hee hee. gotta love the parentheses within parentheses within parentheses)
We were out from about noon to about 5 o'clock. We missed Andrea and John, but overall, it was an awesome day.
Tomorrow, the zoo! (I hope Kaia's ankle gets better. She sprained it at the park they went to after the Market. I don't know where they got the energy!)
