For the first time in 2013, this little family had a sickness-free weekend together!! No vomiting, no fever, no flu symptoms, no ear infections, nothing!
We celebrated our good health with a home improvement project (finally filling in the massive gaps in our ancient hardwood floors), getting our taxes filed (hooray!), and going on a date night as a family.
Saturday night was spent dancing around Thorndike Creamery, where we had the place to ourselves to eat pizza & ice cream and draw on their massive chalkboard wall.
After filling our bellies and and laughing at Natalie’s antics, we hit the lanes for a little candlepin bowling. Natalie loved it, which is good because she had already requested that we book the bowling alley for her 3rd birthday party. The kid has a killer curve on her roll, and loved waiting for the balls to come back down the track so she could line them up before her next turn.
Yeah, I could get used to family time that isn’t spent nursing each other back to health.
Oh, and child bowling shoes? Cutest. Things. Ever.
