Crazy Celebration Combo

We are crazy people...are you aware?

We make kooky choices sometimes...all for fun.

For our anniversary, we received a coupon for 'Free Chocolate' at the Melting Pot...one of our splurges from time to time. We haven't had a chance to use said coupon because of all the hoopla surrounding the sale of the house and moving. Ah, but it had no expiration date, Bingo! We figured we'd make a family thing out of it even though we typically only go there as a couple.

Another thing that we just hadn't had time to do was to take Ella out for a 'I've started kindergarten' type of celebration. We decided that bowling would be great fun for us all....so....

Saturday, we went bowling...and then we went out for fondue. Bowling gets crazy, what with all the taking turns and crazy lights and music, but it was very fun. Our kids are entertaining in any environment...the pictures below will prove this.

Dinner was just as wonderful as always. We had plenty of food and the kids were decent (and by decent I mean that I managed not to get stabbed with a fondue stick by the boy child). No really, they were rather well behaved...we had a few volume issues, but nothing a fluffy marshmallow couldn't muffle. They especially enjoyed the chocolate...because they are my children.

It feels so nice to be done wondering if the house would sale/close before the new house is finished...and we were very happy to celebrate as a family.

There were a few of these:



And these....

This picture makes me happy....
