SJ on the Move

Let the Good Times Roll...

Last night, we took SJ candlepin bowling with our friends, the Saffs. For those "non-New Englanders" who don't know what candlepin bowling is, I'll explain. You roll a small ball, maybe 2 to 3 pounds, no holes for fingers, toward the 10 pins. The pins are small on the top and bottom and taper to a wider middle section. I think the lane is shorter than regular bowling, but it's been forever since I've been regular bowling, so I'm not exactly sure. In candlepin, you get 3 tries on your turn.
Candlepin is great for kids becuase they can really handle the balls. SJ did a "granny-style" roll and did fairly well for a first-timer. She was so excited to actually roll the ball that she turned to get another one before seeing if her previous ball knocked down any pins! She also loved her bowling shoes and did a lot of jumping.
