Take the Little Kids Bowling... take them bowling
For X-mas, Stacey got us a pass for 3 free games @ Ypsi-Arbor Bowl, & we finally had the chance to use it the other day. Solstice & Aiden had been looking foreward to it for quite some time, & they had a blast. I, too, had a blast seeing as I was able to kick their asses. I'm no Mike Aulby, but I totally smoked them. It was sweet! I didn't even get any gutter balls (of course, they didn't either since we were using the bumpers, but that's not the point). At the end of the game, I cleared the scores before they saw who won because Aiden beat Solstice by about 15 & she would have been crushed. As far as they know, they tied. Aiden actually got a strike w/o even hitting the bumpers, so he had that going for him... later on he also threw the ball so lightly that it stopped about half way down the lane & a dude had to go get it so he could try again. When he got the ball back, I suggested that he go back to using his right hand since he's right handed after all. His response: "I can never remember which hand I am." Awesome! Solstice was more consistent, but she never got the strike or spare she needed to be able to keep pace w/ him. All in all it was a great time. I don't know why we don't do that more. I think I'm going to make a belated New Year's Resolution to go along w/ the other one I made already (make the world a better place) & resolve to go bowling w/ the kids more often. It's fun and super cheap. Afterwards, we went to Pizza Hut & chowed down on the old pan pizza & salad bar. Solstice only wanted salad while Aiden scored a free Personal Pan Pizza after the delivery dude accidentally took his in the car. He had to wait a little longer, but free is free so no complaints!
