The Crazies get Crazy

Up until now, finding things to do, besides just hanging out at home or the park, when Grandma and Grandpa are in town was hard to do. Our kids were too small to do most things, and you can only take guests to the zoo so many times before it becomes fairly redundant.

Monday, we went bowling. The bumpers worked like a charm for Goofball, who pumped himself up for each turn by throwing up his fist, shouting, "Victory is mine!" Goofball coined his signature "Run and Toss" bowling form. He also discovered that bowling shoes and floor are the perfect combination of slippery-ness for some seriously hard-core breakdancing. Even Sweetpea loved heaving her little 6- pounder up to the line and giving it the slightest nudge, just strong enough, to get the ball down the lane (except for that one time that her ball actually started come back at us in the opposite direction it was supposed to be traveling). At its fastest, her ball clocked a whopping 1.45 mph. Did you know the new lanes have counters that actually clock the speed of the ball? I didn't. We also rode the new(ish) Phoenix light rail train from a spot near our house to downtown's Old Spaghetti Factory. We got an eyeful of some interesting public transit folk and some great views of downtown. Both extremely entertaining.
On our last night together, we joined the Snowbirds (The "Bluehairs" as Gary calls them... any Arizonians with me on this one?!) down at the Organ Stop Pizza. Loud Organ Music for an hour. Awesome. Some super cheesy fun. The Crazies couldn't get enough.

Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for a great visit! Please come see us again soon (we have one Goofball very anxious to give up his bed again for you!)

Your children are beautiful! I know just what you mean about finding things to do. Nana and Papa are coming to visit on Monday for a week. Thankfully my little one is 2.5 going on 12 so now we can do some fun stuff :)
