Art and some Strikes (X)

The weekend started with this.

Steven explained to me, 'this is a Dr. Seuss tree'. I immediately agreed that we need one.

Awesome origami. The paper and instructions to make these little robots can be purchased at the Art Museum bookstore. I nearly forked over $15 for paper until I came to my senses and realized I barely have time to grocery shop, let alone make mini monsters out of itsy bitsy most-likely-frustrating pieces of paper.

This was my dinner, which part way through I realized looked beautiful. Veggies from my garden on a grilled corn tortilla with some cheddar cheese and lentils with cous cous. Prep time was about 10 minutes. Tasted heavenly.

We finished off the day with bowling. I managed to get a Turkey (Mom - that means three strikes in a row) and have what I thought was an amazing game, followed by two games where sadly I failed to break 100. By A LOT. Steven and Jeffrey destroyed me. Jeffrey managed to better my Turkey by bowling six strikes in a row. I am not sure I'm worthy of sharing a lane with him anymore.

Jeffrey kept mentioning something about the need for all of us to join a bowling league. The boys would have no problem, but I am not sure they like girls who bowl an 83 signing up for leagues. I might need to stick with triathlon.
