W rides a bike

Winston learned to ride a bike!  It is so fulfilling to see him feel so proud -- even surprised -- at learning to ride a bike.  He's super fast.  He falls down on purpose and is sure to convince us that, "I'm OK."  He still needs a little help getting started, but he's got the rest of it down.  Even brakes!  Good job, W!

Bowling with MaMom and Poppy

Well before my parents' visit in October, W requested to go bowling with MaMom.  He was serious about it.  He wanted to go bowling.  His request was granted.  
The whole experience fell just short of a total disaster.  I have one idea why (see above picture).  Bowling is not suited for young toddlers.  Lizzie ran down one of the lanes.  She stuck her head in the ball return more than once.  She ran around non-stop.  I suppose I shouldn't have expected otherwise.  Nevertheless, she did roll the ball down the ramp a few times, followed by a few gymnastics demonstrations on the bars.  
When we weren't chasing after her, we were getting after W for bowling his ball down the wrong lane. Oops.
