Bowling Fun and a Movie!

CW and GO

One of our local bowling alley establishments has free bowling during the summer.  I have signed up all the Caterpillars – and took GO and CW this morning.  It was the first time GO has been bowling (and able to understand), and it was SO cute watching her try to haul around the 6 lb ball.

CW did a great job.  He started out a little rough, but really listened to how to improve, and by the end was doing AWESOME!  It will take practice, but keeping his wrist/arm straight seemed to be his “big challenge”.  He bowled both games (GO only bowled her first), and even took over for some of GO’s frames in the 2nd game!

Lunch was at Chick-fil-a, we met Aunt CC and two cousins to eat some chicken and play on the playground.  It was a nice (and tiring) stop before naptime!  After naptime, GO went to have dinner with Aunt CC (and the rest of that side of her family), while CW had his friend come spend the night.  We ended up letting the kids stay up late – but at midnight it was lights out!

We woke up early, in order to make it out to the movie theatre to see “Journey to the Center of the Earth 2”.  The current deal (on Tue/Wed) is $1 admission to the 10am G/PG movies.  I got a big bucket of popcorn which we all shared – Queen and Princess met us there.  Then we ran CW’s friend home, in order to get back for naptime. (GO is a bear if we don’t at least TRY to keep naptime on some sort of schedule!)

CW helped me make a Chicken Pot Pie for dinner, which turned out wonderful.  He’s a GREAT Sous Chef!  I had already told the Caterpillars they could lay out their swimsuits to put on after dinner (AFTER Otto came home).

We ended the day with more swimming – this time, GO took Strawberry Shortcake with her.  (She found one of her old burp cloths, the Gerber brand terrycloth ones, and insisted it was Strawberry’s towel…)  Hee-hee-larious!  Warm showers/baths and then watching the first two episodes of Storage Wars (NEW SEASON – YAY!) was perfect before bedtime.

A fast, but wonderful, two days!
