Today's blog post is brought to you by the letter B.
We woke up to rain.
That put a damper on our usual Tuesday morning hike.
We'll hike in mud, but actual rain is a bit much for us at this point.
(we don't even have waterproof rain jackets. it's so cal after all--not Seattle)
Or at least for Baby D and I.
So we came up with a plan, you guessed it, B.
We dug the rain Boots out of the garage.
Then we went Bowling.
They have only been bowling once.
Lilly had just turned 2--it was a while ago.
And they have been wanting to go back every since.
They were thrilled.
James got a strike and a few spares.
William said, "bowling might be my sport."
Lilly had her own technique for getting the ball down the lane.
Slooooow and steady.
And don't you just love a girl pink pants with dirty knees and bowling shoes?
Could she be any cuter, my little tomboy?
Bowling was an absolute Blast.
We can't wait for the next rainy day.
It stopped raining by the time we got home, but the air felt crisp.
(for those of us in so cal, anything in the 60s is "crisp")
So I put on a pot of our favorite Beans.
Our first rainy day of the season was a complete success.
In the old days, I loved to spend a rainy day on the couch, drinking hot tea and reading a book.
But these days that is no longer a viable option.
While I still love a good day at home, and schedule at least 1 a week, a day spent only indoors at home is not so good.
So this Bowling thing was a really good option.
It's got me thinking about more rainy days to come and how we'll beat cabin fever.
I'm looking for ideas.
How do you like to spend rainy days?
