Bowling Season is here and in effect BABY!!

So last Saturday my son's bowling league started up again. This is his second season bowling and he ended up on the same team as the team he was on last year, only minus one boy and the addition of his cousin. lol

Last year my son's team came in first place, which was great, however what I love about this league is it's all about the fun as opposed to just the winner. Though some take it more seriously than others, I mean scholarships and tournaments are at stake here.

Nothing is more fun than seeing the high Five's, the tasty treats and cosmo bowling that happens every holiday. It's a long season, September through May, but it's fun. Not to mention it gives us something to do every Saturday morning.

Now I have to admit The Boy is not the happiest bowler in the world. In fact he can be pretty cranky, hard on himself and pout a lot. I think he spends more time away from the lane then actually on the lane bowling and watching his teammates. He can truly be a pain in the butt, sometimes rude too to put it nicely. He gets frustrated easily, as he has a lot of trouble bowling. We really should practice more but it's just hard to find the time on the weekends.

The first two games he played (they play 3 games every Saturday) he bowled in the 50's and 60's, however the last game, he found his groove. He bowled his first 122, EVER. No bumpers either!! This actually made him so happy, instead of running and hiding from the camera, he actually posed. With a ball!! You'll see before he bowled his 3rd game he sat under the counter where the balls belong alone and ignored everyone!

Hopefully he'll have a good year, be happy and actually watch his other teammates bowl and cheer them on. Check out the video to see his first strike of the year!!

How cute is that, his teammate snuck in the picture. LOL HI JOHN!!

Not so happy BOY during games 1 and 2, before he bowled his first strike.

The Boy's team. They don't have a team name yet, we are still deciding! My nephew is in the blue bowling t-shirt. HI CHRISTOPHER!! Sorry I didn't get a picture of your face, next weekend though!

How cute are these two little teammates? My other nephew is on the left and my neighbors son on the right! They are in the, I believe, 6yrs and under league.

Check out these scores! These kids are 9 through 11 years old. My nephew Christopher rocked it with his 100 score. I believe his two other games were even higher, GREAT JOB. The Boy with his ending score of 122, his best game EVER. Now remember his average is 62, so this made him very happy! I think he gets his bowling skills from me, I can barely bowl over 50. hey I'm a retired soccer player, I use my feet not my hands. John scored a 191, yes that is right a 191. I believe that was his best game ever too.


Now enjoy this video of The Boy bowling his first STRIKE of the season.

This is so sweet! I used to love to go bowling, but it has been a while now since I held a bowling ball!
It looks like a good time was had by all!
Happy Saturday!!!

I don't know if I have ever gotten 122! Great job. That is a long season.

Great pictures (especially the one of your sulky little guy - I'm terrible at bowling and that's how I feel half the time, LOL!).

And WTG on that strike, kiddo - impressive! =D

Oh,a 122 is great!
Bowling is so fun.
Have a great weekend! :)

MiMi said...

OMG, that is CUTE! My husband would LOVE to do a league with the boys...I wonder if they have that here, one like that anyway.
122!!! Woohoo! The highest I ever got, EVER, was 68. Oh yeah, I'm THAT good baby.
And I think that was on the 3rd game so it took me that long to "find my groove." :/

Evonne said...

That's cute! Great pictures! I'm glad he had fun and did well. I love to bowl. Not any good, but I still love it!

Have a great weekend!

He bowled a 122 without the bumpers? The last time I bowled, I scored an 86 with the bumpers. My kids fight, pout, and cry when the bowl. And golf. And play board games. And...., (You get the picture.)

I used to love my mom's bowling league. All us kids would hang out and make trouble in the game room and we always got cracker jacks.

roses are red, violets are blue, who's got an award?
Hey it's you!!!

ha ha ha. Yeah yeah, I know dorky is as dorky does. Although I never got that whole expression either.

Yaya said...

How cute! Yeah...I usually bowl about a 50 or 60....

Bowling is so much fun! We took my four year old for the first time this summer and he had a good time too after he started hitting pins...before that he was a little pouty-okay a lot pouty.

How fun that they play together on a league. Looks like fun!

NO NO Bumpers for him and his age group. Only the 2 to 6yr olds get bumpers, everyone else bowls for real. This week he bowled a 63. 52 AND 73. He got lucky with the 122.
