Ten Pin Bowling

Life is full of little firsts. A while ago, one of these came up for Kayla, when we took her bowling for the first time.

Jan and I used to love bowling back in SA, but haven’t played in about 5 years. Thinking about it now, that puts the last time we played at before my pregnancy. Sad, but true. Anyway, we thought we’d turn a gloomy, rainy Saturday into one of those ‘remember the time when’ memories and headed out to the Rhein-Ruhr Zentrum to bowl.

They didn’t have a ball light enough for Kayla to handle on her own, so Jan and I took turns to help her bowl. She’d cover her face with both hands and peek from between her fingers until the pins had been knocked over. If she was happy with the results, she’d throw her hands in the air and squeal. Otherwise, she’d sulk. It was hilarious. 😛

Jan seemed to remember the trick of bowling much better than I did. Except for one spare, I sucked. He did pretty well though and even managed a bunch of strikes. Still, oodles of fun. The plan is to keep the joints from rusting again and stay in practice. I’ll keep you updated on this. 🙂

Hope you have an awesome week,
