Visiting Bonnie

We spent the weekend visiting my sister - me, the kids, my mom, and my brother all in the car all day Friday to get there. Other than being really really long, the drive went pretty well. Once we had unloaded the car and eaten the yummy dinner Bonnie had waiting for us, we had a little birthday party for Bon. (we missed it last month) The brownies (on of Bon's fav desserts) had chocolate chip cookie dough in them and were covered with chocolate ganache MMMM. And the silly hat is my own creation - just because I wanted it to feel more like a party :)

Saturday morning was spent shopping at the outlet mall, where most of us found a little something for ourselves (in my case, a lot of somethings!). And with 4 adults and 2 kids, the shopping went pretty easily as one person was always available to take the kids outside to play if needed. After naptime back at the house we all went to an arcade and had a blast. I can't believe we hadn't thought to take the kids to a place like that before (nope, not really even tempted by Chucky Cheese lol). And even all of us grown ups seemed to have fun and didn't realize how late we were out past bedtime.

Sunday was bowling and Mexican food. I was sorely tempted to take "butt shots" of everyone as they were bowling (you know how badly bowling photos work) but I refrained :) - except for Katy and Wyatt who happened to be helping her at the time. Ty missed out on the action because he was so worn out he fell asleep in the car on the ride to the bowling alley and spent the whole time asleep under one of the tables. The kids also got to spend a bit of one on one time with their Aunt Bonnie at the park that afternoon.

Monday was spent driving home. And today I am exhausted. Ty and Katy don't seem to be having the same after-effects.
