Let's Bowl!!!!!

Last week we took the girls bowling for the first time. They really had a lot of fun. Not sure I did the first round but we'll get to that soon enough.

Here is Clark helping Laura to roll her ball. She tried the squat position first.

Here is giving Katelyn tips on how to bowl.

She had a lot of fun. When the ball would hit the pins she'd do these little "oh yeah" dances.

Laura had fun....when it was her turn. She pouted when it wasn't.

And she pouted some more.

And that a smile....nope, she's still pouting.

Caught Katelyn doing one of her dances. This was after her first strike. Yes I said strike. She got a few of those during our rounds of bowling. Actually so did Laura and Clark. Mommy? Well stay tuned.

I think I'm going to have to try Katelyn's technique next time I bowl. Oh wait. Maybe not, I don't think I'd be able to. She did this with each turn. She was bent over so much that you could see her head between her legs and her look of total concentration before each bowl...ummm, roll of the ball.

I think I could handle Laura's technique though. She found that she could roll the ball better if she sat down, placed the ball between her legs and rolled with all her might.

So how did the girls do for their first time bowling? Well here are the averages for our first round:
Yeah, yeah I can hear you all laughing now. I know what you are thinking......this mama is so horrible at bowling that she can't even get a higher score than her 3 yr old and using bumpers. Well it's true.......I have fun bowling when I go but I am horrible at it.
I did redeam myself the second round though.
The girls loved it and are begging to go again soon. Maybe next time I'll get an average over 100 with bumpers......or maybe not. hahaha!

Sounds like you guys had a great time! You HAD to bowl a low score the first game. You didn't want the girls to get discouraged!

How fun! We always go bowling when our family gets together. Andrew was thrilled last time because he beat his mother. Everyone, even the three year olds, always beat my daughter-in-law but she's a really good sport.

I'm glad I'm not alone Shirley! Sounds like your daughter-in-law and I should bowl together sometime and see who the worst bowler is. I bet our families would have fun watching that. ;)
