Last week... I took a day to work from home and kept DD home with me -- she needed a quiet day to catch up on rest (yes... we are wayyy too busy) and I needed a quiet office to catch up on work.
Grandma came over to look after DD for a bit in the afternoon; and the two devised a great outdoor game - Ice Bowling! Seeing as there is NO snow - which means no tobogganing or skiing or snowshoeing or footprint tracking... a new game was in order!
Ice Bowling offered a great way to utilize our abundance of fire wood with our over abundance of ice and voila -- an afternoon of fun and games!
