Rainy day bowling

This was one of those days that just never got any brighter. Rain all day & even some sleet. So we needed to head out & brighten it up a bit!


BOWLING!
Look mom..they're singing!


Notice how the youngest had to get all "fancy" for bowling!  Crown & all....
We have this great old school bowling alley near us. I don’t know what it is, but we all prefer it to the “new” one down the way.
We’re not great at bowling by any means, but it is so much fun!

Nope...I didn't get a spare on this one  : )

On her way back to get a HIGH FIVE from her sister.

My 5 year old is determined to fling that ball down the lane herself. We taught her the “granny roll” but she wants to do it just like us.
Running back in excitment from her STRIKE!

My 9 yr old has bowling down & comes close to beating me almost every time.


Just found out that they have $1 a game on Tuesdays nights so maybe we'll have to make it a weekly thing. I might have to craft up some bowling shirts!! (just kidding…I think )

$1 a game and I would live at the bowling alley to watch the family enjoy themselves. It is insanely expensive - but boy is it fun. I miss it.

And bowling shirts are a definite. :)

How great to go out for a family bowling event -- especially since it would have been much easier to sit around the house and veg. :)
