Bowling - Annual Event

We love to bowl but don't go very often due to the large, heavy bowling balls. I wrote about bowling last year here; describing the candle-pin bowling I was used when growing up in Maine.
It is always hot, very hot when school starts so one afternoon, we went (with Daddy too) and enjoyed a cool hour of fun. AA had the lightest ball of six pounds.  It was still too heavy for her, but she wanted to manage.
The fun stopped when I paid the bill - over $30+ for six strings (three people, two games each). Plus we bought sodas which was another $10+. Now, I know why families don't bowl anymore!

AA didn't use the bowling ball slide so we had her in a separate lane with the bumpers up.
Daddy bowls very well and beat us both games!
The least expensive item was the 50 cents to win a stuffed giraffe for AA! She loves her stuffed animals!

Maybe this will be an annual event; then again, maybe not!
