This past weekend, one of BB's preschool friends had a Birthday Bowling party (ah, the varied festivities involved in turning four years old!) so BB got to go bowling for the first time! She took it Very Seriously. I mean, just look at that face, scoping out the lanes!
Her first attempt was a pretty basic approach: Sit, Push, and Wait.
We had to wait a looooong time with those first few balls. I took a video of her second attempt:
Pretty soon, she was tinkering with her technique. Let's try something from the side! (Thank goodness for bumpers!)
A little windup... wait for it...
Look, Mom! I knocked down some pins!
When she got home and told BJ all about it, he was fascinated. He wanted to know: What happens to the ball? Where do the pins go? How do they reappear? He's never been bowling before, but given the fun BB had and BJ's interest, there's probably a family bowling trip in our future!
