Bowling with the Young Farmers: Reality VS Wii

This Sunday Tall Guy and I got to pretend we were young and went bowling with IFB District 3 Young Farmers.  We might be WAY above the 35 yr. old age cut-off for competition, but we are still young enough to play, or at least our girls are! 

Let me just say, I am an awesome bowler on Wii!  I can keep up with any challenger, and most of the time I can finish first or second, BUT bowling with a real 12 lb. ball is a whole different story!  At least I didn't lose my ball and scare the BaHooZus out of the spectators behind me.  That has happened before. 

Photographer's note:  It is a bit difficult to take pictures of people's faces as they bowl.  I gave it my best shot! Here are some of the bowlers from our county:


 The Ransom family, and my bloggy buddy!
 The Bucks

 The Hartmans

 The girls, yeah, I have no clue what Little Bear is thinking???
 Can you see my score?  I am the L!  TWO strikes in a row!  I still came in last after the tenth frame!  Gotta celebrate when I can at the bowling alley!

 Tall Guy and Little Miss Ransom!

The kids had a blast, and I think we are going to try and bowl some more this winter.  Believe it or not, our little village has a bowling alley!  I think there are 5-6 lanes!  I've even been there once or twice.  Stay tuned for a trip to the little town!

  7. We have a kinect for our Xbox 360 and it has a bowling game and I am way better at that than I am at real bowling, but I must admit a night at a bowling alley with friends is always a good time regardless of the score I get.
