Except that I was explaining to her how they had the kiddie bumpers in the gutters to keep the bowling balls in line, because -- when you're five to seven years old -- that is just going to greatly reduce the frustration level.
Now Katie had never been bowling, but she was insisting that she did not need the kiddie bumpers. Right.
So I took her to the bowling alley today and we bowled a game each.
I rolled a 140, which wasn't too bad, given that I opened up the first three frames (including one ugly split) and later missed a couple of standing 10 pins.
Katie rolled a nine.
She positively reeked of unhappiness. *sigh*
I think we're going to go ahead and book the party at the bowling alley, but I will have to take her back for at least one more session with the kiddie bumpers before the party.
At least, I'll probably pick up my standing 10 pins...
