Inspiration and Family Fun

During a recent stint of blog-hopping, I landed on this one: Hearth and Vine.  So much inspiration!!! Anyway, one of the articles - $100  Room Challenge really appealed to me.  This was something that would be challenging, fun and inexpensive.  I am so on board!  and my coming across this NOW is incredible.  You see, Elliot and I are going to exchange rooms.  His room has too many cut-outs, is darker and although the rooms are the same size, because of the doorways, cut-outs, etc., his seems smaller.  Mine is lighter (room faces back of house and gets LOTS of sunshine) and has more room to hold his train table, and tons of toys and books. 

Changing rooms is also a great way for us to clear out the clutter.  I look around my room and see so much that I really do not need.  This is going to be a GREAT challenge!  I will add photos as we progress.

If you were to challenge yourself to update a room and stay under $100.00, which room would you choose????

In other news, we took the kiddies to Zone 28 last night to bowl and play games.  We had a really fun time.  At first, little E was a bit hard on himself when bowling - jeez kiddo, you are only 5!  But then he got the hang of things and had a good time.  In fact, we are leaning towards signing him up for a Junior League at our local bowling alley.  As for Amelia, she is just a bundle of fun.  Kayla and I hadn't bowled in such a long time, but we didn't do too bad.  Later, we ended up at Elliot's 2nd all time favorite - Eat -n - Park for dinner (McDonald's is his first).  Then home to bed.  It was a fabulous family night out.
