The reason we have never gone bowling is because it is really hard to corral 4 kids anywhere -- but the bowling alley has always made me nervous. There are too many ways for them to get injured...but I put aside my paranoia and fed the littles lots of skittles, soda and french fries and even then it was challenging, but we managed to get in a whole game of bowling. It was fun to see my competitive kids battle to have the best score! It was a good time. The awesome people running the place gave us a coupon too, so for the one game and shoe rentals for 4, it was only $20! Love that!
