Bowling on NYE

Grandma and Grandpa McMillan came to visit after Christmas. It's always fun when grandparents come to town. The family got a Wii for Christmas, so much of our leisure time during Christmas and New Years was spent Wii bowling, or Wii tennis or making Wii people (aka Mii). After awhile, Grandpa suggested going real bowling. What?! Step out of the house, get out of the 2D world and back into the real world and interact with real people and real bowling balls and really, really bowl?! Okay! So New Years Eve night we all bundled up (ok, not was hovering in the high 60s that day), went out for some Mexican food (a must on New Years Eve) and then hit the lanes. Let's just say, we weren't the only ones who had the idea to go bowling. But it made it even more fun. Kids running all over the place, people sharing the ramps for little bowlers, noise, lights, fun!Myla taking a stab at real bowling for the first time. She had a hard time understanding why the ball didn't hit all the pins like they do on Wii bowling!
Here's Papa working it.Cade is a little worried about his score. No worries, he beat his a landslide. (I'm not the greatest bowler...even on the Wii. But I love to bowl.)
Gavin even got to bowl. That's the beauty of the ramps. Here, Kevin is just trying to wrangle him away from all the other bright and shiny things he's trying to make mischief with.
The bowling crew. They take their bowling seriously. :)
