Rainy sundays are tough. no wonderland. no park. no swimming at Jack and Ilana’s. it’s hard on the kids and it’s hard on us.

sunday morning started with a mini-mother’s day of sorts (no, i didn’t get a sleep-in) – the husband took Josh and Bella grocery shopping while i took Emily to ballet. i dropped her off, beelined to starbucks and sat there, with the book i’m reading and my latte, and sat and read and people-watched for an hour. ah, bliss.

and then we did the unthinkable. Yorkdale. on a sunday. in the rain. i think the freedom of the morning went to my head or something. what were we thinking? it was packed. the kids were crazy. but…they did make a fantastic window display for American Eagle. (this was right before they kicked us out…kidding…sort of)

and then we had friends over for a bbq. 8 adults. plus 10 kids running around. it was chaos…because we couldn’t go outside…but it was still really nice.

and then, finally, the kids went to bed….and we went out, for my birthday, again. actually…it really wasn’t for my birthday, but i’ve been wanting to go bowling for about 6 months now (what? i’m from the midwest. that’s what we do….bowl and drink beer and eat cheese). i’m only a fair bowler. i usually hover around 100. sometimes a little less. sometimes a little more.


of course, i had my camera out the entire night. normally, i would have been holding Jadyn…but i didn’t really want to infect her with my bowling hands. ew.

we are total tourists:

and then, because Tova can’t drive by Demetres and NOT go in…we had to make an 11pm pit stop. so, of course, we told them it was her birthday (even though we are still supposed to be celebrating mine…ahem…)

come on over and see me at Fabulous today. My husband. he did good. :)

  1. It looks like you had a really good time – the pics are adorable to!

  2. Fry deserves to have “Love you Tovs” displayed on your blog for the world to see – as it may have been the cheesiest bowling name EVER!

  5. Sounds like a fun Sunday…. but wait. That girl in blue in the third-from-last photo looks JUST LIKE a girl my husband used to date. She couldn’t be – the woman I’m thinking of would be in her late 30s, but THEY COULD BE TWINS.

  8. How would one go about getting this “free time” you speak of? I have about 4 books on my nightstand and 0 chance of reading one this week.

  9. we too had a fun-filled day. Doc’s favourite part, however, was adopting your son. you made a mans dream come true-even if he did have to bribe the boy with the Wii.

  10. so many great things here,

    You are reading a great book. John bought it for me a couple of days ago.

    Your children are beautiful.

    We long for the evening when we can go out with our friends, and we don’t even have children. Just jobs, lots and lots of jobs. (I have 4, he has 2).

    Bowling and waffle.

    I heart you.
