Friday night we went out with my son and his girlfriend (pictured below). Originally we were going to go out to dinner and then to a haunted theme park, but it was raining, so we had dinner and then went bowling. I haven’t bowled in a few years…it was fun! We went to a place in Franklin, Ohio called J.D. Legends. It was our first time there. They also have outdoor sand volleyball, concerts, a bar and restaurant. Sometimes it can be a challenge to find something to do (that everyone wants to do) with an adult child!
If he looks tall compared to her…he is. He’s 6’9″ tall and I’m guessing she’s about 5’4″!
I tried to get a few “artsy” pics…
Don’t most bowling alleys have dusty disco balls?
Posing for the camera! I’m such a ham. At least I admit it!
I’ve never taken photos of people bowling, so it was fun to see everyone’s style (or lack of — on certain throws). Randy looks like he’s going to fall here…
Justin has a long way to get down…
Ashley beat us the first game. One of the cool things this facility has is the ability to display how fast you are throwing the ball. I was the slowest…usually clocking in around 13 mph, then Justin and Ashley around 15-16 mph and Randy around 17 mph. Randy’s fastest ball was over 20 mph.
Randy said I looked like “Tinkerbell” walking down the lane and releasing the ball. But, I got the most strikes in a game!
Although we have a small family, all of our parents are deceased, and we rarely see our siblings, I’m grateful we have each other!
