Bowling

It isn't easy to think of fun things for the kids to do with Great Grandpa that don't require a lot of activity on his part but enough to keep my kids entertained. Especially when you are in a foreign town. But I have to have a plan. There has to be activities for the kids to remember and build memories from. So after thinking about it all night the night before, I decided that our last day in Provo with Papo would be spent bowling.

The kids had been taking turns spending the night with Grandpa. They watch a movie together and have some kind of dessert. They love to do it. Grandpa is patient with giving them this one on one time.

So on our last day of our visit we picked Grandpa up and went to the Wilkinson center (my first time) to go bowling. We did a lot of talking about BYU that day. And about what a good school it would be for the kids to try and aim for. Chase is totally convinced now that he wants to be a cougar. Let's hope he gets great scholarships....
Anyway we had a wonderful afternoon. We bowled one game. There were a few victory dances like this...
Some high fives and celebratory slaps like this...
And the score ended up looking like this...
Yes, bowling is not my strong suit. But the kids and Papo had a really great time practicing their moves. Obviously Grandpa's are the best.
