Back to the Bowl-a-Roll

It's November ......It was rainy and chilly today .......where else would you find Tzuhsi and family?
No, we wouldn't even venture to Target on Bleak, Black Friday.

It was Black Bowling!

These 2, aka Water and Oil were up together. Oil cracked a joke ........

Water pretended to think it wasn't funny

Ana and Lew had a war over the matching green kiddie balls.

Here's Tzuhsi fine form ..........

A big draw to the bowling alley is the vending machines stocked with cheap crap manufactured by poorly paid workers in China

This one was a giant porkchop today. Seems that not getting a score of 200, like he gets on the wii, makes him "HATE THIS STUPID GAME."

Yup, a good time, all around.

A little child labor

Yesterday we went to the cottage to rake and winterize......... the children are thrilled when I announce we're going to Seneca in November............yeah, right.
BUT, it was a beautiful day, which softened the blow.
AND Pop let the kids play with the fire that was burning the leaves. Now THAT makes all the difference in the world. Raking was fun when they could rake the fire. What a grandfather.

This first picture is just for Suzie...... remind you of another photo??????

Lewie was in rare (ok, ok, his usual) form with his poses

and making everyone laugh

Frances was whining about going to Seneca until that fresh lake air hit her......

The girls kicked Goofy out of the picture......

No one enjoyed playing with the fire more than the Lawyer. It brought out her inner pyromaniac. In this shot she recreated the Santa Ana winds with her leaf blower. I was worried that someone was going to call 911. She generated a LOT of smoke. The kids loved it.

All the leaves are brown........

Last week we took a little ride into the country for leaf peeking. We went to a ski place and took a ride up the chair lift.

Lisa went with the "Twins" - poor sucker. All I got of them was this nice butt-shot

Frances stayed glued to Ana. Frances was convinced that one of them was going to fall from the chair and splat on the hill below.

After the ride we went looking for a place to have lunch. Strangely there was nothing available at the ski lodge. After weaving around the country roads and making everyone carsick, we ended up at McDonalds - blech, close to home!

Something I don't like to see on my weather map!
