Eventually we took Daniel back to his apartment and came home, where Adam went to work on building a steadicam and Paul and I watched Cosmos, then PBS's not-brand-new but terrific special on the British monarchy, Our Queen. Not a great day for the Orioles or Nationals, but hope everyone else had a happy Mother's Day!
