My friend Jen and I took our boys bowling this weekend, and boy, oh boy, did we have a blast! It’s pretty hilarious to watch kids that little (6 & 7) trying to deal with 8 pound bowling balls! We relented and put up the gutter-bumpers, but the boys opted not to use the ramp (for those who haven’t seen them, they make aluminum ramps that are around 3′ tall. The child puts the ball on top, and rolls it down so it has enough momentum to make it down the aisle to the pins). I can’t tell you how many times they ended up sliding on knees because of the way they were holding the balls – their hands are too small to use the holes, so they just had to lug the balls to the line and heave them. What a hoot!
The scores ended up in the high 90’s… Trace got 98 and Josh got 95.
So today, we’re going bowling. Pull up a ball, wing it down the lane, and hope for the best.
Remember the rules – be nice. ‘Cause if you’re not, we’re stealing your shoes, and you have to wear those skeevy rentals for the rest of the week!!
