Saturday Night Bowling

Bowling was something I remember doing a lot as a child.
Mainly with the church youth group, then in high school and I even took a bowling class while in college at LSU.
But, even with all of that I am NOT a good bowler.
I'm lucky to knock down pins each time.
If you've been reading this blog for long you might remember we were part of a bowling league a year or so ago.
I think I might have enjoyed it more if it had not started at 9:30pm on Thursday nights.
I'm just too old to be out bowling until 12am on a school night.
Anyway, I have not been bowling since our league ended until this weekend.
And, guess what?!
The bowling alley we always went to got a MAJOR face lift!!
New ownership, new look, new food, NEW EVERYTHING!!
Pappas Lanes is now Ten Park Lanes.
 I could have taken a lot more pictures but I felt people staring at me.
Of course they didn't know I was a blogger! 
 They even expanded and added decks, a porch, and an outside bar.
We ordered food.
I enjoyed their fried pickles and jalapenos. 
HOT! but good!
And, their pork sliders were delish as well.
 We met up with Josh and Katie for our Saturday night adventure.
I had to get the usual picture of them.
And, one of us.. 
1st picture.

 Take 2.
Much better.
 It was the Grand Re-opening of Park Lanes so the bowling was free.
We had to wait an hour or so, but no big deal.
 Katie and I traded in our cowboy boots...
 For our bowling shoes...
 Good times!
 Brad is 'Mr. Competitive' with everything.
He won all three games.
And, of course he had to have a little fun with the names on our score board.

 A very good time!
 The new owners of Ten Park Lanes did an awesome job with the Grand Re-opening.
They had live music outside, beer and moonshine tastings, and food galore.
I didn't get pictures of all of it but take my word for it... a great way to spend a Saturday evening out.
I can't wait to go bowling again.
Even though I SUCK!!
Happy Sunday!

I am not any good at bowling despite a college class and lots of playing too but I love to play when I have the chance! Looks like a great night!

Oh man. I'm lucky to break 100. I'm serious. I suck at bowling. My stupid town just got a bowling alley not too long ago. I haven't been yet. But if I go, I'll take a pic of my score. =)
