Bowling with the Big Kids


Once again this summer we have the kids signed up for Kids Bowl Free and I bought a season pass to our local bowling alley (allows up to 4 adults to also bowl free).  So for the cost of shoe rentals, we are set up to bowl until the end of October. 
This past week, I took the big kids bowling.  I traded Lil'C in for my niece and it was so much fun and I actually got to bowl!  When Lil'C bowls I leave exhausted.  I spend the whole game bent over helping her bowl or trying to distract her when it is not her turn so her brother has a chance to bowl.  There are often tears and it can be a bit frustrating all around.
Taking the big kids bowling was a real treat.  I got to sit back and relax when it was not my turn (they kept score) and I got to bowl!  The first game I bowled a straight game and ended up winning (love those bumpers!).  The second game I decided to let them win and tried to lose.  The harder I tried to lose the better I got!  I was bowling Strikes, Spares and Tens with each attempt to lose!  The lady next to me who had her own balls and shoes asked if I was in a league!?!?!?  I laughed and told her that I was trying to lose.  She told me I was doing a really poor job ;)  Luckily the kids weren't paying attention at this point and I would enter in my own scores.  I gave myself 4's and 5's and ended up losing :)  After all the loser had to buy the milkshakes!

Even with the bumpers, I'd lose real easy!

Glad it was fun...

LOL! I can't stand bowling. I'm only in it for the beer.
