Silas was invited to a birthday party for his friend Nolan. It was at the only bowling alley in the Bismarck/Mandan area. Its actually a nice bowling alley. I haven't been bowling in a long time. You may laugh, but I think the last time I went into a bowling alley, I walked out smelling like smoke.
This bowling alley was newly renovated and the computers were nice and user friendly. I was surprised.
So, back to the party.
There were like 12 - 5 yr olds. Stacy's husband brought up a suggestion yesterday that I thought was good one -- Require hockey helmets. HA! It wasn't that bad. It wasn't bad at all really. The one game they played lasted FOREVER. But no one was hurt, the bumpers on the gutters made everyone score points and remain happy.
But, Silas concluded that bowling is boring. He really didn't like it. It was too slow, took too long to come back around to his turn and the point system confused him. I don't think Silas will be asking for a bowling party.
