Over the weekend we had a day full of activities planned. Starting with swimming and three birthday party invites, we thought the kiddo would have a packed day. (We had planned to only attend two of the parties.) In the end, the weather forecast was calling for MORE snow, so both parties were rescheduled. I felt that we needed a physical activity, despite the forecast. There is so much snow outside that it is actually dangerous to walk around. Our street is too narrow now to risk walking it (we don't have sidewalks) and any where we like to go for outdoor fun is snow covered. We came to the conclusion that going bowling would be the best bet. We lucked out and only had to wait for 15 minutes to get a lane at our local bowling alley. From 3-5pm, the lanes are lit by black lights for glow bowling. By chance, my son had picked out a lime green shirt that day to wear, and it just happened to glow under the lights! We played two games and had a lot of fun. My son even won the first game! Afterwards we went for a walk at the mall and to pick up a quick dinner, followed by family movie night. We watched Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs!
Bowling was a great family activity and even though some of us are terrible bowlers, we all had fun. I'll be sure to sign up for the kids bowl free event again this summer so we can work on improving our game!
