Day 159: Georgia Aquarium and a walk in the woods

I had a broken night's sleep for some reason. Zoe woke up at one point and ended up in bed with me. She slept quite late, and I ended up needing to wake her up so that we could get away on time. Even as it was, we left 30 minutes later than planned.

We spent the morning at the Georgia Aquarium. It's a pretty impressive facility. I've never been that impressed by the Monterey Bay Aquarium, but this one is certainly good. Zoe had a good time checking out everything, but it was a bit of a challenge herding four kids in the same direction at various times.

All the busy days may have been taking a bit of a toll on her, because she had a couple of minor meltdowns at the aquarium today, but recovered quickly and seemed okay otherwise.

After lunch and a little more looking around, we headed back home so James could take his nap. Briana ducked out and ran a few errands, and I held the fort down. The girls mostly disbanded and played on their own, and I finally got on top of all the photos I've been taking.

Clara had a piano lesson at 4:30pm, so we dropped her off for that, just around the corner, and went for a walk in the woods nearby. It was a beautiful little loop, that reminded me of the woods in Zurich a little bit. Unfortunately Lucy got stung by something while we were there.

I managed to get Zoe down for bed pretty early again tonight, and we don't have any tight time constraints in the morning, so I should be able to let her sleep in for as long as she likes tomorrow morning.
