An Afternoon with Aiden

Mimi offered to take Nolan for the afternoon yesterday so that Mike & I could spend some time with Aiden. I had a hard time coming up with something to do, but Mike spit out the great idea of going bowling. We had an awesome time! He didn't quite understand what was going on when we first arrived at the alley, but once I took my first turn & rolled the ball down the (bumpered) lane, his eyes lit up. Mike helped him out a lot, and we only had one instance of him trying to run down the lane after the ball (luckily Mike caught him before he got too far). He even carried the 6-pound ball by himself a few times! We only ended up bowling one game because Aiden started requesting McDonald's for lunch. But before we left, we crowded into the photo booth to get the pictures at the left. Possibly my favorite part of the whole day. :)


  1. Love the photo booth pictures!

  2. Looks like fun!! We took Noah around this age and he spent almost the entire time laying on the floor crying because he could not accept that it wasn't always his turn. Arrrgh! We haven't tried again since :)
