Coen LOVES to bowl…it’s his favorite thing besides eating ice cream. He’s been bowling since he was about 1.5 years old (if you don’t count the time that he was in Mommy’s tummy when she was on a league) and he takes the game very seriously. When we get into the bowling center he goes right up to the guy at the counter and says “6 pound ball, please”. Then he carries the ball down to the lane, puts his hands over the blower thing to make sure their “not sticky” while I put our names in. He then rolls the ball around to find the holes…put his fingers in (the proper way, mind you) and then takes his position. He always starts where I start (even though he has to take a zillion steps to reach the line) pauses for a moment (to plan his angle, I suppose) and then goes for it. I would say that he rolls it straight down the lane about 15% of the time, which is pretty good when you’re throwing a ball that’s 1/5 of your body weight.

So this afternoon Daddy got to join us before he headed off to do his rap-star thing…we had much fun…see for yourself!

    Looks like great fun! Maybe we’ll have to set up a Christmas holiday bowling session?

    Oh I love this! I’ve been wondering if N is big enough for bowling – I’d say yes!! Looks like fun.

    That’s cute how seriously he takes his bowling. 🙂 Do they have leagues for kids? Other than an occasional game here and there I’ve never done much bowling. Great pictures though.

    I’ve given you something. Swing by when you get a chance.

    Perfect beginning for two handed form in more ways than I can describe here. Good genes I guess.
