chuckle Bowling

We went to visit some friends of ours yesterday, to spend the day with them. We lived next door to them when we first moved to NC. Our kids became friends, as did we.

We met to eat lunch and then we went bowling. We had a blast!! It was the first time my kids had ever been bowling. They used the bumpers on their lane. It was hilarious!! Needless to say, all of us adults weren't any better! ROFL!! We laughed so hard at each other.

What a nice time to just play around and laugh for a change.

Just a word of warning if you do decide to go....bowling is no longer a cheap date....at least not here. It was $3.00 a game per person (kids too) + $5.00 each for shoe rental! For the one time, though, it was worth it!

I am on the lookout for coupons to our local bowling alleys.

Sexy shoes! My DH in his fashionable shoes.



Andy bowling. He made the spare without hitting the bumpers at all! He had such a good time.

Tami
Bowling is so much fun and they are so proud of themselves when they can fianlly put away those bumpers and do it on their own like the grown ups!.
This is our school holiday treat if we have nothing much else to do.
The shoes are always such a fashion statement! Glad you had a fun time.

That's all my son has been talking about...joining a league. I am going to look into it.

If your grandkids sign up, let me know how they like doing it.

We love to bowl but as you mentioned, Tami, it's expensive.
So, Mark bowls but I just watch.
He was able to restart his league this season after having a stroke last summer.
He cannot lift a heavy ball nor can he do the back swing to get any momentum. So, he just walks up to the lane and throws a light ball from his side. He is getting stronger though and has started to be able to throw better.
The people on the league are all very supportive of him and patient as, by the third game he is usually dragging!

hugs, train
