We told Peter yesterday afternoon that we were going to go bowling that evening. After that, all we heard were excited exclamations of "Go bowling! Go bowling! Go bowling, mommy?" Approximately every 2 minutes.
He didn't have a clue what it was, but he sure was excited about it.
I thought bringing a two year old and a two month old to the bowling alley might be an interesting combo. Containing Peter's incredible energy, breastfeeding Edmund, having them both up past bedtime...not to mention trying to bowl, which I don't have a good track record with.
But what a fabulous time. Two of our couple friends joined us. Peter was enamored with the huge, colorful balls. He even bowled a few himself.
|Diana and Chad--our sweet friends! And Peter's favorite babysitters.|
|Larry and Corey! Love these two. But feel free to ignore Larry's t-shirt.|
|Look at that face! He was in love.|
|Balls come out of that dark hole. COOLEST THING EVER.|
|Cheering enthusiastically for someone's bowl...even if it was a gutter ball.|
And he roots for me when I bowl a total game score in the 50s.
Who cares about the numbers? I got to throw that giant orb of color down the shiny isle and hit the pins.
