Summer Lovin'....had me a blast!

With summer officially behind us and a new school year in full swing, I thought it was time to take a peek back at the fun things we did this summer.  Each day this week, I'm going to (try to) post about all the adventures we had...starting with bowling.

My sister clued me in to a wonderful program called "Kids Bowl Free" (it's a website -- look it up!)  Now I am not a world-class bowler by ANY stretch of the imagination.  In fact, I think that at least one of the kids beat me each time we played this summer; I think on one occasion they ALL beat me.  (Hanging my head in shame.)  Oh well -- God blessed me in other areas!  Back to "Kids Bowl Free"...

This WONDERFUL program provides 2 free games of bowling EVERY DAY during the program (ours started running in May and I think it might run through Labor Day).  Shoe rental was not included, but that's okay --  you could buy a pass to cover their shoe rental cost.  I ALSO purchased a family pass allowing up to four adults to bowl 2 free games each day -- this was well worth the $25 I spent on it. 

All three of the big kids LOVED bowling.  We went at least once a week at Sempeck's Bowling Alley, and were often joined by my sister and her boys, or my mom (who happens to be a rock-star bowler).  And Easton was a trooper -- he hung out in the stroller and watched.  When we started bowling he couldn't walk, but now he can and he'll be joining his older sibs next year when we participate again.

Here's a few shots from bowling...

On the very last day of summer before school started, I asked the kids what they wanted to do....BOWLING!  So we headed to Sempeck's Bowling Alley for one last hurrah.  This time we splurged (thanks daddy!) and enjoyed lunch, too.  They were SO excited by this very special treat!

This was a WONDERFUL summer activity that we all enjoyed doing.  I can't say enough good things about it or about Sempeck's Bowling Alley.  I know the kids will always have great memories of this!

I'm so glad you guys loved it! I'm hoping next year Devin enjoys it a little more and we can go more often (it will help that I won't be pregnant!) You're pictures were great!
