Just a normal day at camp, but it was followed by an eventful evening for myself and the boys.
First, we went to Barnabys (where kids eat free on Wednesday nights). There were a few interesting things that happened at Barnabys. There was a magician performing tricks and making balloon animals. That was perfect entertainment, and it all worked out that as soon as the magician was done, dinner served (fantastic timing).
As we were eating, we looked up and saw a baseball game. Didn't think much of it. It was the Giants/Padres, and Tim Lincecum was on the mound. I remember when he used to be awesome about 5-6 years ago, but not so much anymore. I wasn't really paying attention until they flashed that he was two out away from a no-hitter. Being that I was sitting there with my boys, I tried to explain to them as fast as I could what a no-hitter was, and how rare it happens, and that this was baseball history they were witnessing. Nathan got it, Chris just wanted the magician to come back.
final out of Lincecum's second no hitter.
It was fun to watch. It will be interesting to see if either of them remember it in years to come.
I then took the boys over to see a music/science program performed by a violinist named Caryn Lin.
Caryn Lin presents: Bach to Rock
It was an hour long show about sound, music, and vibrations. Both Nathan and Chris had an opportunity to jam out on the electric violin. Sadly though, I didn't get a pic of Chris doing it.

Just another fun-filled adventurous day with the Bugey boys
