Coral Banded Shrimp

Ben had quite a bit of fun with my wooden train this morning   He told me he was driving and I was in the next car eating a snack.  That sounded about right.

The shrimp in the tank hides all day long.  However, early this morning, Ben and I spied him.  My camera caught a bit of his red color.

I am still sorting, sifting and arranging.  While looking for the right plastic container, I found an ancient but unopened Lego kit.  I gave it to Ben.

It took him about 30 minutes, but he followed the instructions and put it together completely by himself. 
Papa took us to a vegan restaurant for lunch.  To be honest, and maybe not very politically correct, I was concerned the food would be boring.  I couldn't have been more wrong.  It was delicious and next time I'll willingly go. 

All of us went to the Bean Museum.  Ben has never showed interest in the magnetic ant hive before, but today we were almost the only ones there and this was very fun.  I was a little embarrassed that I couldn't adequately explain why we couldn't put the magnets close together.  I know about magnetic polarity, but I also know if you can't explain a concept to a child, you don't know it well enough.  I'll study up.  Or at least figure out how to use smaller words.

Papa invited Ben and me for a walk.  First, we fed the birds.

Next, we checked on the koi.

The rocks around the pond are great.

I probably don't need to mention this, but Ben has more energy than anyone else on the planet.

Papa and I walked at a normal, steady pace.  Ben zoomed away, came back, zoomed away again before returning.  He covered at least four times the distance we did.

The afternoon was beautiful, perfect.

Sometimes Ben waited for us, but he waits about as well as I do.

We saw ducks.

Back at the ranch, we played Crossfire.  This is actually a fun game, even if the other person is not playing by the rules.  Well, the fact was, neither of us were.

I baked another loaf of bread this afternoon.  Corinne turned it into avocado toast.

Just before bedtime, the shrimp said goodnight.
