We had a big Good Friday. Started with a movie…Zootopia. I only got to see about half before Jack had had enough. But Coral and Maddy said it was good. Ikea, some greek food, frozen yogurt, then back home.

We like that place…because the food is good, we can bring the kids…but just a little bit it feels like a pub. Plus bitching soundtrack, pinball and cheap(ish) beer.

The Isotopes Punk Rock Baseball Club.

Influences include the ’94 Expos? Alright!
