Keeping the Girl Busy on a Budget

I need a day to keep the girl busy, but not spend a lot of money. Peanut Butter mentioned going bowling, and I got a family fun pass from the Isthumus and it had 2 for 1 bowling. We headed out to the lanes.

In the middle of the 2nd game Peanut Butter had her fill and we finished the game and settled up. $9.50 for 2 games and shoes, not too bad. We went to Goodwill to hunt down some items for PB's up coming tea party for her birthday. Old Navy for some clothes for school and Target for glue sticks for school. We ate dinner at Pedro's which I also had a coupon from the family fun pass for and went to the Madison's Children's Museum. The first Thursday night of the month is free from 5-8pm and Peanut Butter had a blast.

Making pizza.

Making Shadows, this was pretty cool you stand against this white wall and there is a blast of light and your shadow is captured on the wall.

Feeding the chickens.

They had a beautiful rooftop garden. Peanut Butter is in the refuse to pose stage and it is impossible to get a photo of her.

If I could only get her to do my windows.

They have this amazing climbing apparatus. It was packed all night. Peanut Butter got lucky at the end of the night as no one was on it when we were leaving. Not that she didn't spend a ton of  time earlier in the night on it.

It was a pretty good day!

Wow, you have been busy! Looks like fun. Bianca has been begging to go bowling, I just can't justify it in the summer! It's a winter thing for us to do.

I can't believe how fast PB is growing up. She is so cute!

Excellent! My kids love bowling, but there's five of us, so it's never a reasonable adventure. LOL

That climbing apparatus is wild looking, my kids would love it!

Okay, I want to climb in that thing. It looks like fun!

I have never taken Reyna bowling. I guess we need to add that to our list of things to do.
