There is nothing that brings me as much happiness as hearing my kids laughing and giggling for hours. We are visiting my mom's house, and the Cousin Crew is finally reunited. Although our summer adventures are different because of social distancing, the kids have found unique and creative ways to become silly and have fun. It is impossible to feel sad or overwhelmed when the house is overflowing with laughter and mischief!
Yesterday afternoon I packed up the Cousin Crew and we headed bowling. The local bowling alley has gone to herculean efforts to provide a safe environment to play during the pandemic. They installed barriers between between every lane, they are thoroughly disinfect each ball after use. Each lane is pre-filled with a selection of bowling balls, eliminating the need to go and try to find your own. Every group of bowlers are distanced from another by at least two empty lanes. Between the barriers blocking us into our lane and the distance between other bowlers, we felt like we had the entire alley to ourselves.
In the evening, after our traditional card games and Bomb! trivia, the Crew took to the yard for an epic glow battle. They laughed and played outside into the wee hours of the morning. Between the full moon and the pre-storm stillness, it was the perfect time for outdoor glow games.
Today is raining, but I have no doubt that we will find something fun to do!
