We spent the whole day at the beach today. Dan’s sister Monica and her family are in town and they wanted to bring their kids Tess and Ella to the beach while they were here. We got there early to secure a firepit and stayed all day, having lunch and dinner there. The kids had fun boogie boarding, playing in the sand and flying kites.

Aidan turned 9 years old today. For his birthday he wanted to go bowling. We took the whole family to a local bowling alley. For most of the kids, it was the first time they had ever bowled. The twins thought it was much harder than bowling on the Wii. Everyone had a fun time and said they wanted to go bowling again sometime.
After bowling we went back home for a family party with cake and presents. Aidan liked all his presents, especially the pogo stick.
We washed out the tye-dye yesterday and the kids couldn’t wait to wear their creations! Don’t they look adorable?
