Last Thursday we had planned to spend the morning in our local park to take our Me and Mine photos and just have some fun together. The weather had other ideas so we changed our plans.
Ethan had watched an episode of Mr Tumble where the children went Tenpin Bowling. He loved it and we thought we would try it as a family. So on Thursday afternoon that’s what we did.
Of course with something new there is always the worry of how Ethan will react. When we arrived at the bowling alley Ethan spotted the arcade and immediately vocalised ‘Christmas lights’. This kept him busy whilst we paid for the game and collected the correct size shoes.
We were the only people in the bowling ally which always helps as you don’t have an audience if Ethan reacts badly to the experience.
Darren showed Ethan what to do and there was no stopping him. Ethan was very happy to collect the balls and roll them down the ally. He did keep us on our toes as he tried to pick up every ball, no matter how heavy they were. He also got very excited at points and
threw dropped the ball on quite a few occasions deciding against using the ramp. We also had to stop him from running down one of the lanes in his excitement.
Thankfully we only booked one game which was more than enough for Ethan as it was quite a lot of work for us. Keeping him engaged and helping him play the game. We have to work on the taking turns part as he took nearly every go.
