No work or school for anyone at our house. We had planned to go away for the 4 day weekend, but decided we couldn't afford it. We did have a great family day Sunday, going out for lunch & bowling with a great group of friends from church. Today we packed a bunch of sandwiches & drove an hour or so to do some hiking. The guys are more into the hiking than I am, but I love to read outdoors!! They get frustrated cuz I'd rather read, they think I am missing out, and maybe I am, but I love listening to their stories & just relaxing. Now they are fixing dinner...DH thought I was being too grouchy & stressed trying to cook...

That's the difference between, being into enjoying being outdoors and relaxing and letting them do their thing.

No, I definitely bowl for fun! I actually did pretty good the other day, for me. 122 the first game, 90 the second. DH was the only one who beat me the first game (I beat Lije by one pin!). Obviously we were all there just to ave fun, not because we are pros, but we accomplished our goal!! Lots of fun!!

JaieLyn, when you go bowling, do you have your own ball/shoes or do you rent them?

DH got a ball & double bag last fall, but I haven't gotten a ball yet...I had one years ago. Lije & Caleb have outgrown their balls, we need to get one of them redrilled for Levi. DH is going to get shoes yet & I will, too. Lije & Cub got their balls in middle school when they were on the bowling team.
