Even so, I was determined to make this last day count. I asked the boys for ideas on what they wanted to do on this last day. Micah offered up open swim at the local pool. Jack first said stay home all day, which was not a huge shock, but then changed it to the zoo. Finn just echoed whatever his bothers said. Going into Thursday I was debating swim or zoo, zoo or swim. Really, both are my least favorite activities, but it wasn't about me (or so I kept telling myself).
Unfortunately we woke to rain on Thursday. At first it was a little rain, and I thought we could probably do the zoo but then it said thundershowers/lightning were predicted later. So, no swim or zoo for us. Instead, and I know you are all dying to know, we went BOWLING. The one bowling alley near our house was recently torn down so it was pretty fun to surprise the boys by telling them we were going bowling. They were pretty sure I was crazy. But we went, we bowled, and we had a really good time.

|Agony waiting to see if any pins would be knocked down|
|Finn has the longest ball roll ever, sometimes it didn't even make it|
|And bowling makes us hungry|
Also, I won. But I guess I shouldn't gloat since my competitors were under the age of 10.
