Let the indoctrination begin!

I signed up Summer for the free Summer bowling program awhile back. Yesterday we didn’t have much to do so after dinner we took her bowling to see if she’d like it and whether or not to get the summer family pass.

Summer is a giant scaredy-cat so I was a little worried that she would be scared of this too. And just like I suspected, she started to cry and said she didn’t want to go bowling, even though that’s all she could talk about that afternoon. But we quickly reassured her and when she realized she could carry the ball herself and drop it onto the lane she was in heaven.

I can’t believe she picked up that 6 lb ball and threw it down the lane 40 times all by herself. She was one hot sweaty mess by the time she was done. But we didn’t hear a peep from her later when she went to bed!

First we get the ball…DSC_2869

Then we take it to the line…DSC_2840

And we watch it roll slooooooowly down the lane. Sometimes dad helps it along with his foot if he can catch it.DSC_2837

I “hit the pins!!!” Success!!!!


Here she is posing with her ball. We figured out that the ball weighs approximately 1/4 of her body weight, which would be like me picking up and throwing a 30 lb ball. Please don’t do the math. I found that really funny though last night. I wonder if her arms are sore today?DSC_2872   And this one was just happy as a clam to sit and watch all the excitement. DSC_2850It was really fun, and I can see many days of bowling ahead of us this summer. Sign up friends, and we can all go together!

Did you have her try one of those bowling ramps? My girls sometimes like to use those since they can still do it themselves but it gets the ball going faster. Can't believe she kept going 40 times! :) so cute.

You gotta get her one of those bowling shirts with the flames on it and a logo like "Buddy" or something
