It Never Pays to Have Fun

It never pays to have fun)This is a funny little saying my sister-in-law (Lori) has to describe the efforts of trying to go do something fun with the kids and it doesn't go as well as you hope. Sometimes the hassle of it all isn't worth it. But today it was! Our friend Allison took the kids bowling yesterday and discovered that kids can bowl one game FREE everyday of the whole summer (you just have to pay $1.50 for shoe rental). We don't plan to actually bowl everyday of the summer but I was so thrilled with the good deal that we did go today. Only $8 for bowling! The girls all used the bumpers so there was no possibility of the dreaded gutter ball. Clark was more ambitious and bowled half the frames with no bumpers with a total of 4 pins knocked down. As you can imagine it was pretty disheartening for him. Finally he opted for the bumpers too and his game improved dramatically. I don't mean to brag or anything..cough, cough... but I scored 133! My dad taught us to bowl when we kids were young. I think I'll have to enlist him to teach my kids to bowl!

I am proud of Clark for trying to bowl without the bumpers! And I am so glad that little bit of knowledge paid off! ;o) Isn't bowling the best?!?!

Oh, tell me more. Where do you go to bowl for this great deal? Sounds fun!
