Family Night at its Best!

On Monday we decided we wanted to do something fun for our FHE activity. We were so excited to go bowling at ISU! Tracy and I were secretly excited to have an excuse to use the bumper guards -- no gutter balls today! Don't tell ;)

Wyatt absolutely loved it. He had a hard time understanding the long wait between turns, but with his daddy's help, he did a great job!
Lookie, I knocked eight pins over -- Yea!!!
The six pound ball was almost more than Abby could handle, but she sure did great. I think it took over a minute for the ball to reach the pins, but we learned it didn't take speed to knock over the pins!

Look at her ball, it is straight on for a strike!

Morgan did a great job too. The ball was just right for her and she had an absolute blast!

I don't know if we even needed the guards, look at her ball line up perfectly. I think we have some future bowlers on our hands.

At the end of the night with bumper guards and all, the high score was only 116. We were all within a few points of each other. I think Tracy and I need to work on our game. We used the bumper guards as much as the kids. I don't even want to think about the score if we didn't have the guards. It was such a fun time just hanging out and having a blast as a family!

SO FUN! I am pretty jealous that you live near a bowling alley that is as clean as that one!

I love Abby's expression in that shot. So much attitude, like "there you go family, THAT is how you bowl"!
