So Ashlee and I cooked up a plan all week to escape from Mom Duty last night. We didn't care what we did or where we went. Just needed a little break.
So we went bowling. And on the way we hoped that there were open lanes. But then we got to thinking that the lanes are probably not so hopping at 6:30 pm on a Friday night. The place was empty and Ashlee was way better than she let on with her cute green bowling shoes and strikes and spares and shtuff.
My form in this picture probably explains why I didn't even break 100! She won the 1st game and I won the second- barely. But it was good times. We thought about roller skating next- but that might be a bit risky if we were to get injured and then having to take care of the little ones and all. I've been down that road before. The things that become too dangerous now that we're moms!
We even stopped by Barnes & Noble since we had only been out a little over an hour by the time we were done bowling! I remembered Friday nights in highschool hanging out at Barnes & Noble near the art books and music magazines. We snatched up copies of the new Mothering and then browsed the children's section. Oh, and the food books, too.
And we were gone just a couple hours, but it was good. And we missed our guys. And it was just what I needed.
