Bowling with Lily

I've been looking for some ways to spend some one-on-one time with Lily ever since I got home from four days in Colorado with Ella. While I was gone, Lily came up with an illustrated list of things for us to do together. The list included swimming, horse-back riding, going to a farm, and going to the movies.

On Wednesday, she and I did something that wasn't on her list - we went bowling. Before we left, I asked her if she'd ever bowled before, and she said, "Yes! Wii bowling at E's house!" I laughed and then explained that Wii bowling doesn't count.

Turns out Lily loves bowling and is pretty good at it. She beat me soundly - twice.

Each time she bowled, she'd do a funny little shimmy while waiting for the ball to roll down the lane. And when the pins fell, she'd hop up and down and spin.

It was a nice hour with my girl.

Aww must be hard to spread the love around all of them. A little one on one is just the ticket. We used to bowl a lot when the kids were younger.

my son does that shimmy too! I said only he could turn bowling into cardio exercise, but apparently yours can too
