Today we went bowling. Ben has been asking us to go for ….. well forever. He watched an episode of ‘Handy Manny’ that was at a bowling alley. After that every time he saw a sign about bowling he reminded us that we needed to go. We had planned on going to our local bowling alley. But unfortunately it was badly damaged in the recent floods. We ended up at Loganholme. It is half way between us and Al and Claire. So we all went bowling…. YAY!
The kids loved it! Ben, Hugo and even Evie all had a go. The kids had the aid of bumpers and ramps to assist them. Unfortunately Claire and I did not have this assistance…. we could have used it!! It has been about twenty years since I went bowling last! But I did get one STRIKE (no skill involved – complete fluke). Claire however did have a very unique bowling style to assist her! The Dads took a while to warm up and probably would have liked to play another game. But little people needed to have lunch. Ben and Hugo particularly enjoyed the day…. I am not sure what they enjoyed more the bowling or the chips they got as a special treat.
