Our first Saturday

No homework for the girls today.  It was a break for their parents, too.  It was Sarah’s day to pick what we did.  Sarah selected the Aquarium, which is close to our apartment.  The entrance was not very impressive, but the aquarium turned out to be quite entertaining.  We had never seen Mediterranean moray eels.  They aren’t green, they are more black and yellow.  At the Mote Aquarium in Florida there is an exhibit where kids pet small rays, but in Paris they pet colorful carp.

Although it was 37 degrees, the sun made it seem warmer.  Marcia and I wore gloves but the kids went with bare hands.  Since they did not complain about it being cold, I guess they were OK. It turned out to be a good day for the family.
