Strike!

Bowling

Bowling 2

Saturday morning found us bright and early in the city and ready for some bowling action, to celebrate Grumble's birthday with her grandparents. I was particularly excited, as I had never been ten pin bowling before, and couldn't wait to try a sport where you get to wear funny shoes.

Can I just say that I totally, utterly, completely suck at bowling? I have never been any good at hand/eye coordination sports, but my abysmal failure at this one took it to a whole new level. I think my best score was a measly 42 out of a possible 300.  It didn't help that more of my bowls landed in the gutter than hit pins. Yikes! I probably should have had the guards put up on the lane, so I at least had a chance of making contact with something. But despite my severe lack of bowling prowess, did I have fun! And the shoes? Surprisingly comfy!

  1. I HOPE you're not planning on wearing those things tomorrow when we catch up! ;)

    Your first time bowling? Maybe you guys should come over for some Wii bowling, soooooo much easier!

  2. They are the coolest bowling shoes I've seen. No wonder you had fun.

  3. the last time I went bowling the ball slipped out of my hand and ended up going backwards- away from the pins. I'm not going bowling again.
