We set Wed. aside as a family day. It began with a family breakfast of bacon, eggs, biscuits, and coffee! Then we went bowling as a family. This was Isaiah's and Laila's first time to bowl. We got two lanes at the alley. One lane had bumpers. Abby, Sam, Isaiah, and Laila used the bumper lane, and Cody, Lauren, Rick, and me used the regular lane.
We really could have our own bowling team

A little known fact is that I was in a bowling league as a kid. Oh, yes I was, and I have quite a few trophies to prove it.

Isaiah won both games on his lane. Rick won both games on our lane. I finally got my groove about midway through the second game and Rick beat me by 4 pins!! We are quite competitive as a family, so much so that certain children didn't enjoy themselves quite as much as they might have. One in particular was very frustrated most of the time.

Isaiah and Laila had a blast. They wanted to have a turn over and over. They were so cute and got the hang of it right away.
This little guy is so passionate that he laments and wails any time a good thing comes to an end. The only way to calm him is to assure him over and over that he will get to do it again "sometime."

I think this just might become one of our favorite things to do together. I see many "competitions" in our future.
