2 Weeks into Summer...
I know it's sad when getting a new appliance is "exciting". Well, our old fridge stopped making ice & Bryan was worried that it was several years old and maybe not worth repairing. I think that he needed an excuse to go buy a new one. Whatever, I'm not complaining. We went window shopping @ a couple of local stores & found this beauty. The sales-guy offered it to us with a discount, because it has a little ding in one of the doors. - Like anyone will notice one it has all my stuff all over it. Ha! So here is our new addition. A black refrigerator with French doors. The drawer freezer, doesn't have as much space as an upright, but when the basement is finished, I'll be able to use the deep-freeze again. So, that's not so bad. I really like having the double fridge width though.For Memorial Day, we were invited to our friends' house for a BBQ party. We had grilled pizzas, which were yummy & played games. The kids attempted to play Duck, Duck, Goose on the trampoline. Allison didn't really understand the concept. She ran around no matter who was "it".We also played Cornhole. I know...what a horrible name. I always laugh @ people playing it, because they usually have a bean bag in one hand & a beer in the other. More times than not, it's also a bunch of Fraternity guys. Well, I played & it was pretty fun. I guess you could compare it to horseshoes, but a little different.Adam LOVES this little guy. I really hope we add a new little brother to our family, but I'm hoping he'll give me lots of help no matter what.
We also played "Minute to Win it" . I don't watch the show, but I enjoyed the challenges. So FUN!Johnny Apple StackNut StackerWe had a great time with good friends & met some new ones too. I love a good party. Come to think of it, I like a bad party too.
Other than this, we've spent time playing outside, going to the splashpark, and doing the McDonald's playland a few times. We also had an outing to go bowling. The kids were very excited, because it was the first time for the little ones. Adam & K were on one lane with the rest on another. They brought out the 2 "light" balls (still 5#) and a ramp for them to use.Amelia lining up her shot.I think Amelia was one of the first to want to ditch the ramp. She was happy with herself, I guess that's what counts.Nice Form Adam!Not to be out-done, Adelaide had to try bowling on her own too. BTW - Bowling balls don't bounce well.I even let Allison be a little independent too. She was so cute trying to carry that big, heavy bowling ball.Go Adelaide!I had to get a picture of our Bowling Style. You got to love bowling shoes...Who would want to steal something this ugly?Our final scores were pretty close.
The kids all had a fun time, but the mommies were definitely ready to leave by the end. We made some fun memories that they can remember for awhile.
