The Weekly Peanut, Issue 220
Last week Amanda texted us with a spontaneous afternoon offering: bowling. Uh... ok. Sure. Why not? We headed to Firkin and Kegler.
D wasn't a huge fan of the bowling. She was, however, a MASSIVE fan of the arcade.
The girls tried Dance Dance Revolution.
But the biggest hit was this ride simulator. The girls did every possible journey, from a roller coaster to being a pinball in a machine.
And they LOVED every one of them.
I told D if she liked this there was no reason she wouldn't love Space Mountain (she's been balking at attempting it lately).
D loves shopping. When I found out Target had the new Mario Karts?? We had to go. D found the pink one. Of course.
We made the drive to Tampa again so Ian could spend time with his family, mourning the loss of Ian's grandmother. We stopped by Grandpa Bobo's first. The chicks are growing so fast.
We met up with more family for dinner at the Masaryktown Café (a restaurant Ian and I used to go to very early on in our almost 17 year relationship).
After insisting she wasn't pleased with any of the menu offerings (so help me, this kid says "That's it?" at almost every restaurant we go to anymore when I read her the menu), she inhaled both her beans and rice as well as her hot dog. Then she went to town on some oil and vinegar. Little weirdo.
We'd thought about hitting a park Sunday, but we were all sort of run down and decided to take a family day together to get some things done around the house. Ian and Daphne worked on a project together: setting up a mister for the tortoises' outside enclosure.
We closed out our weekend with a viewing of The BFG. At least, Daphne did. I had tocook dinner and Ian had to mow the lawn. D really dug it, which I'm glad for as this was one of my favorite books as a child. Hopefully Ian and I can watch it soon, too.
Also Ian and Daphne have been watching endless episodes of Power Rangers together. We might have to take her to see the new movie, she loves that show so much.
