Mystery Outing

Yesterday afternoon, we all loaded up for a mystery outing. Jody and I didn't tell the kids anything about where we were going {partly because we weren't 100% ourselves}. Let me give you a hint and see if you can guess what it involved... owen Did you notice the bowling balls behind Owen? We went bowling {and more} at The Station 2 at Bridgestreet. We had an absolute blast! The Station 2 has 12 bowling lanes, 2 rollerball lanes, pool tables, arcade games and a restaurant. When we got there only about 1/2 of the lanes were full, so we snagged one {good thing because by the time we were done, there was a long line for lanes}! The best part of bowling was new bowling shoes {not the nasty ones they have at our bowling alley}!

Here is Mary Reese watching her ball head for the gutter: mary reese Notice Banks and his perfect form: perfect form Too bad our scores weren't reflective of our form... final score I don't think any bowling leagues will be knocking at our door anytime soon! We looked over at the lane next to ours {on our last frame} and discovered they had their bumpers up. I think next time we will ask for the bumpers...we might even break 100! After our pitiful game of bowling, the kids played this: rollerball Banks even got one of these: strike By the looks of there scores...this was more their speed! rollerball score After rollerball, we gave them some tokens for the arcade games. Banks loved the deer hunting game and skee ball. Mary Reese loved a snow mobile riding game and skee ball. We ended up with 90 tickets but decided to save them to cash in next time! Mary Reese has here eyes set on some Disney Princess items for 225 tickets.

We were going to head next door to try out The Melting Pot but their wait was 1 1/2 hours {next time we will make reservations}! We opted for eating at The Station's restaurant because there was only a 20 minute wait!
