When the cat is away....

...the mice will play. We do try to have a little fun when Papa is gone, to make the time go a little faster. This was taken at my birthday dinner with friends...I think I look pretty good for 41, don't you? Strong, anyway.
The second weekend CC was gone, I made pancakes, and we went to the mall for our annual bowling game. Unfortunately, the rates to bowl had gone up significantly. We opted to play a few arcade games instead. Bumper cars were a hit with everyone.

 Big Ben wanted to drive a motorcycle. I am still amazed by having a boy. My little girl would never have wanted to get on one (still wouldn't!) Thankfully, this was one of those games in which you never really crash. If you fly off a mountain, you just land back on the bike and get points for how many times your man flips in the air. Big Ben chose a bare-chested, muscular African-American with a lot of chains and tatoos to represent him.
We also played a little air hockey. Twinkle Toes and Miss Middler were great competitors. I assumed Big Ben and Sweet Cheeks would just hit the ball back and forth and be thrilled with the idea of how smoothly the puck would glide. Not a chance. The minute Big Ben knocked it into the goal, he threw both #1 fingers in the air and screamed,
"Benaiah 1. Eva 0.Whoooohoooo!"
It was a nice diversion to kick the weekend off. But I'd take CC being home over arcade games anyday!

Separations stink. Period. But I'm glad you had some fun thrown in to pass the time! :) Do you have a summer schedule at all?
