Family First: Bowling

Last week we were invited to a bowling party hosted by Sylvie's daycare provider. Since Sylvie and Mary have never been bowling before we thought it would be a great way to spend the Sunday afternoon.

I wasn't sure how the girls would do, and I was convinced that they would drop the ball on their toes. Thankfully no toes were hurt in the event. Since the bowlers were all five and under, the bumpers were put up along the lanes to ensure success. There were these cool little stands for the kids to use where they put the ball at the top, give it a push, and watch it roll down the slide and toward the pins.

At first Sylvie was a little sad to see her ball roll down towards the pins...(and Daddy was hoping for a strike, or is he just practicing his Zoolander look?).
 But she soon warmed up to the idea of knocking the pins down.
 After watching her big sister, Mary was in there like a dirty shirt. In the beginning all she really wanted to do was pick up the balls, but Daddy convinced her it was fun to push them down the ball slide as well.
 Watching the ball zoom towards the pins...
 And success - a strike! Ok, not really - but fun was had by all.
It was a great afternoon. Thanks again to Yvonne for pulling off a wonderful Christmas party for all the little kids. We really enjoyed ourselves.
