While Sean watched the dreadful Seahawks game and began work on tiling our fireplace's hearth, the girls and I set out on some much needed mother-daughter time.
We headed out to Sidney. While it rained in town, the closer we got to Sidney, the sunnier it became. Throughout our drive, rainbows kept popping up in front of us, some large and vibrant, others faint and distant. But they were always beautiful.
In Sidney, we met friends for a couple of games of 5 pin bowling. It was the first time bowling for both of the girls, other than Wii bowling ;) As it turns out, Emmy is a natural and spanked all the other girls who are at least 1 1/2 years older and 6 inches taller. She has been bragging ever since about how she won both games. Macy was really good sport considering she was no where near Emmy's scores.
After we said goodbye to our friends we had a rare visit to Ronnie Mac's. If that wasn't bad enough, after McDonald's we drove over to Dairy Queen for dessert. [McDonald's was out of ice cream and I had promised myself them a treat] I can hear you chanting "Shame, Shame..."
By this time it now felt like spring. It was at least 15 degrees outside and we had all stripped down to our t-shirts. I LOVE it!!! Nothing like spring weather to make you want to shop. We strolled around Sidney for a bit before picking up a few groceries and heading home.
As we drove towards town the skies grayed and the rains began again. Turns out it had been raining all day, in town.
We ended our day with dinner at the grandparents. A lovely end to a lovely day [and no dishes to clean].
Have a fabulous week.
