Always Crazy, Always Fun, Always Love

Ray Romano once compared life with twins to living in a frat house. As he put it, "no one sleeps, there is a lot of noise and a lot of throwing up." I find this very true with 4 young children, including twins. However, though things are always crazy, we always try to have fun and, most certainly, always love each other.

How to Bowl with 2 Two-Year-Olds and Several other Kids

Last Friday, My sister, Emily, had a great idea to take all of the kids bowling. Our crew included Me, Aaron, all 4 of our kids, my sister Emily, her son Joey and daughter Savanna, and her 12 year old twin Brother and sister-in-laws, Kara and Garrett.

Here, the kids teach us how to bowl:

1) Change your shoes to these ultra cool ones:
(and only keep them on for about 5 minutes....)

2) Select the right ball:


3) Use just the right rolling method:
(and wait and wait and wait as the ball rolls (literally with the girls- the screen said so...) one mile per hour down the lane.....)

4) Show appropriate frustration as your ball goes into the gutter....again.... despite the gutter guards being up....

5) Bring a cheerleader to cheer you on6) If you are the cheerleader, when you get bored, get fussy and demand that someone gets you in on the game:


7)When you get bored, feel free to roll across the bottoms of the lanes giggling your heart out to pass the time. Be sure to roll far enough that your mom has to come over and chase you out of someone else's bowling zone- 2 lanes away!



8) Bring lots of friends! The more the merrier! Chaos makes it fun!

Thanks for the fun family date, Em!!!!!
