So, a little bit of history about March 18th… Our kids often ask us questions like, “When can we do something fun? When can we go bowling? When can we go to the park? When can we stay up late? When can we go on a walk? etc etc. For as long as I can remember our kids asking these questions I remember Robin answering them very frankly “March 18th.” Apparently, he just picked an arbitrary date that he figured the kids would never remember just to be able to give them an answer. No, there is no significance to that date, I guess it’s just the first date that came to his mind! SO, when Spring Break rolled around and we were making plans Robin had decided he was going to take one day off of work to spend with the kids. When I looked at the calendar, I realized that March 18th would actually be a fabulous date to do some fun things as a family! We told the kids the night before that the following day was going to be a day full of family fun and they were so excited. I’m not sure March 18th with always fall during Spring Break but we are going to try to establish a tradition of doing something special together as a family on that date.
So, even though the dentist doesn’t SEEM like a fun way to start the day, we had a 9:00 dentist appointment for both of the big kids and it ended up being a great way to start the day. AND it was a great way to bribe them with… “let’s just get your teeth cleaned at the dentist and then we get to go have fun the rest of the day! Both Emma and Foster had check-ups and cleanings and both went fairly well. Emma is going to need some dental work involving possible braces in the fairly near future but we have a little while before we get to that point. No cavities for either kiddo, praise God!
Cash was a good boy at the dentist. He just hung out in his stroller and dreamed about the day that he gets to sit in the dental chair.
After our dentist appointments we were off to the bowling alley! Bowling is something our kids LOVE to do and always ask to do. Here are all of our bowling shoes.
I posted this pic on FB… these are the names that Robin picked for us for the scorecard. After this, Foster started calling me “Hot Momma!”
Poor Cash. Always just chillin’ in the background!

Final score… Emma won! By the way, we used bumpers. :)
After bowling we went to Foster’s favorite place, Chuck E. Cheese. For the record, this is NOT me or Robin’s favorite place! But sometimes you have to make sacrifices for your children, right?
This is what Cash thought about Chuck E. Cheese. Me too buddy, I feel the same way.
We did take Cash home for a nap after Chuck E. Cheese. Naps are a necessity for Cash so we all rested for a bit and then grabbed a picnic dinner and wen to the park!
Emma conquered the monkey bars while were there!
March 18th turned out to be one of my favorite days ever. It ended perfectly, we put sleeping bags out in our living room, turned off all of the lights, and watched our brand new copy of Frozen. Thank you Lord for giving us days like March 18th to spend quality time with our kids.
