Bowling with the Optimists

Optimist Night at the bowling alley: The boys are very optimistic they'll be having a great time.

Tanner's all about being the big brother with the big ball and the big score!

Me? Bowled a 41 the first game.

Challenged to a second game by Jarrod.

Switched balls, and bowled a 130.

Won by 1 point!

Miller's unique form finish. His scores were very impressive with the help of those pop-up metal bumper pads, shown above.

He spent the entire night watching the balls pop back up.

And, if you weren't paying attention, going out of turn and rolling a ball down your lane.

Cooper definitely feeling optimistic about bowling!

Optimistic discussion on the economy, politics, and boy talk.

For Breyer to sleep on the wooden floor, with all the bowling sounds going on around her, she must have been tired. In an optimistic way!

The good thing about babies with lots of older siblings is that they can usually sleep through anything!

I used do candlepin bowling, and I still have Uncle David's bowling balls. Haven't been bowling in years. I don't think I'd be very good at the ten pins.

Got to love optimism in all its forms :)
