We are still trying to do our parent 'n kid date-activities. It had fallen by the wayside for a few months, but hopefully we can make it more regular. Ben got to take Miles out this month, and I got Jonas.

Ben and Miles went to an antique store (to buy some stuff for our new home), home depot - where they also got lunch, then to city market for sardines - as requested and pleaded by Miles. That boy is weird. Miles is easy to please and loved everything. Ben loved it all, too, of course.

In the truck and ready to go - and ummm happy, too.

Yummy lunch at Home Depot.

Being a star at the antique place.

Yeah, sardines! (In a mustard-sauce, I think?)

All gone.

Jonas and I went bowling. It was the first time we've ever taken our kids and so that was fun. Jonas really enjoyed it and it was so fun just watching him watch his ball.

Jonas was so excited he hardly sat still.

Wow, the ball is even in the middle. Impressive.

And Jonas just had to have a hot-dog. (I think because he knew his big-brother had one on his date.) He ate the whole thing. Oink, oink.

It's really nice to spend one-on-one time with our kids. Miles is calmly sweet. Jonas is rather talkative, without a whine in his voice.

It's a nice change.
