Last Week

 FYI - I started this post MONDAY -- ha!  Just haven't been home much this week. . .what a surprise :) Better late then never, right?  This is all from last week. . .and I truly didn't realize we did so much until I started this post. . .

We were hoping to spend the weekend on the lake.  We even met Tom's cousin halfway (they live almost two hours away) on Friday night to get her son, Patrick, to go with us.  We woke up to storms on Saturday morning and they continued until the afternoon :(

So. . .the older three kids, Nana, and Tom went to see Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides It has a PG-13 rating so Grandpa Fred, the younger two and I did this:

We had a pretty good time. . .here are the scores from the first game:
Look at that. . .Grandpa Fred the big winner. . .and Frederick and Margaret tied for last place.  I made the first strike of the game (?!?) in the last frame so I pulled …
