the fun things we've done this week, all involving "stuff we've made."
First off, Sarah made and iced a cake! It was a boxed mix and packaged vanilla icing, but she did it all on her own and then chose how she wanted to decorate it! (It tasted pretty good... I'm not a big cake fan, but I was impressed.)
kind of a theme with us.)
There were 18 "pins" and some interesting rules, like if you knocked over the biggest one, you got a bonus equal to five times the number of pins you had knocked down. No spares - one shot per frame - and bonus points were given for shot creativity (but those "didn't really count," Sarah said.) She, Chris and I played this for quite a while!
Finally, we SUPER lucked out at half-price day at the Salvation Army. (Does that make me sound really cheap? If so, I hope in a good way!) There was a kit with everything you needed to make a model pyramid out of foam... originally $2, on sale for $1. Completely unused. Guess who took that home with them?!
Talk about good fun at all the right prices... this is my kind of week!
