I broke with my tradition of bowling under an alias yesterday (thought it might be confusing for D, for one thing), and celebrated my birthday with some fully-attributed family bowling. As you can see from this automated scorer display, first-time bowler D was ahead after the first frame.
We played one game of bumper bowling at Colonial Lanes, a gianormous cavern of a place that it's hard to imagine ever having been full. (Bumper bowling is designed to remove the pain of gutter balls from your game... the gutters are filled with a long padded railing that gently bounces your errant balls back into play.)
D used a 6 pound ball (the lightest they had) and only dropped it perilously close to his precious toes twice.
T and I shared a ball, and she bowled the only strike of the night a few seconds after this shot:
Then my camera batteries flashed empty, so no pictures of the boy or birthday girl in action! :-(
We'll just have to go back...
