Ali is a miniature expert at “Playing Pins” on the Wii, so we decided to try to turn her virtual skills into IRL* skills.
We weren’t sure how it would go, seeing as how the smallest ball available was approximately 1/4 of her body weight, but she was a huge fan of the bowling fashion, so if nothing else, at least she’d get to broaden her style horizons.
However, she showed no hesitation to give it a try. She tried to pick up Daddy’s special, custom, name-engraved, from-his-
geeky glory-days-of-league-bowling ball right at the start while he was too busy finding her a light ball:
AJ came to join us, just as excited as Ali:
And Tessa was perfectly content watching the light show.
We started out helping Ali and carrying the ball for her (thinking for sure that she’d drop it on her toes), but after a few frames, if we weren’t quick enough to come help her when it was her turn, she would go get her own ball, carry it to the lane, and
drop throw it:
…and a nice long chat…
all before the ball even made it halfway down the lane.
