Bowling, it is.
So, my sister and I decided to take our families bowling. They had a family package which included shoes for everyone, a pitcher of soda and 2 hours of all you can bowl games for $35. We all bowled on one lane. 8 people. Yes, we let our 2 year old bowl. If you can call it that.
But actually, it wasn't Miles that made us laugh the hardest. No, it was Anna. I mean, how hard (or rather, softly) do you have to be rolling the ball to have it come back up the lane. Seriously. At one point, I told Anna, "Throw it hard!" At which point she hefted the ball up above her head and launched it... into the lane beside us. Fortunately, no one was bowling there. Another time, she managed to somehow get a gutter ball, even tho we were playing with bumpers up. Don't ask, I have no idea.
The moral of the story here is that it took us the full 2 hours for everyone to play ONE GAME. I'm not sure if the group rate was the best deal...
I wish I could remember what the kids' scores were, but I've lost all memory of things that don't ultimately matter, apparently.
