Family fun day

Monday, September 15, 2008

Every Saturday we try to take the kids to do something fun as a family and this has taken on the name of "Family Fun Day." Last weekend, you'll remember we played mini-golf. This weekend, it was bowling.

Ashton has bowled before on a school field trip, but Taylor had never been before. We had such a good time! Although we were quite lucky Ashton didn't break the lane DROPPING her ball down the lane every time she bowled!!

She was very good and helping Taylor with his first try. Taylor tried many different bowling techniques, but I must say, "granny style" proved to be the best.

He was so proud of his first frame that he turned around and ran back to Ashton yelling, "hug, hug!" Now for Taylor, this is nothing new, because he idolizes Ashton. But for Ashton to actually hug Taylor - now that was a miracle, because most of the time she's just plain annoyed at her idol status!

Now, I'm sure you're wondering how Joey and I fared in our little "Family Fun Day." Did we make it without our own private wager on the game?

Of course not! Do you even know us??

This is us before the game began.

There is no picture after the game was over because I was too irritated.

Yes, I lost and was forced to give my extremely sexy husband a 10 minute massage.

It was horrible. I mean, having to rub him down for 10 whole minutes! Sheesh! It was pure torture.

(Shhhh.... don't tell him. I lost on purpose.)

(I was going to comment on how hott you & your husband were, but I'll come back to that!) I think it is AWESOME that you all do "family fun day" that is certainly something the kids will cherish when they're older! Ok, now back to the other, you guys are totally cute! And the fact that you all bet on things is funny, we are totally competitive.

That is awesome that you make a habit of doing it. we do family time but it's always sporatic and last minute...when we plan something comes up birthday party here, someone doesn't feel good..yada yada...but we don't tell him you lost on purpose!

Thank you for the welcome you left on my blog. I love all the pictures you have here-you have a beautiful family. The one of your kids hugging is SO precious, your son looks like he just won the lottery or something! One of the names I had picked out for my daughter was actually "Ashton Taylor".

I love to take my boyz bowling. I'm surprised that we have not been kicked out yet. Can you imagine 3 boyz bowling...lets just say I can't believe they haven't broken a ball yet...

Joey said...

THE Stephanie
I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
