Jamie's bowling league career was cut short when he broke his ankle playing basketball and could no longer hop on his release. (this is absolutely true)



The Miller fam went bowling for Family Friday Night...It was quite fun. We have never really gone bowling with the girls, but I got a coupon in the mail (of course). Tori had gone with us once when we went with the Alumni Department at BBC during Volunteers week, but that was many moons ago- she was about Macie's age at the time. This time, the girls actually bowled, so against Jamie's wishes we used bumpers. Isabelle was all over the bumpers (otherwise she may have scored a 4). Instead I think she scored an 80 and is now under the false assumption that she is a very good bowler. Oops. Tori, on the other hand didn't actually use the bumpers much at all--and she did pretty well. But Isabelle ended up beating her "technically", which made Tori not so happy and not so cooperative for my photo shoot. I, admittedly, may have used the bumper one time, not on purpose, it just happened. My puny little arm has a hard time staying straight after a few frames. =) Jamie, for the record, did not use the bumpers at all and he won--in case you thought I did. I am not ready to join a league or anything (Jamie may have said something about that---ay-yi-yi), but I do think we will go again sometime.

Did you note that Jamie has a different outfit on in some of the pictures? See the ones of him in his black "Go Bucks" shirt...well, that is our little Tori girl with him at the aforementioned PA bowling trip...Can you even believe it? Where has the time gone?

OK, I seriously looked here on your site about 10 times today because I was just hoping you would post something exciting : ). And, like always, you did not disappoint! We went bowling on New Years Eve. I use the bumpers with pride. : ). Love, Becky

I was checking too, after I heeded (is that a word?) the squirrels i came back to check what else was up and nothing for a lot of days! HAHA no but seriously that is so great you all went bowling! i think that Mace and Tori have the same neck or hairline or something in the back? or is it me? How are your puny little arms doing now? Love ya!

I can't believe they can actually lift those bowling balls. I can barely even lift them, after growing up with candlepin bowling. Looks fun, but you need to let the girls take some pics of you too. =)

I'm with Tara...The Girls World needs to include Gretchen...and I'm pretty sure both Tori and Isabelle would jump at the chance to take some photos.

what the heck is candlepin bowling? I am so confused...I feel the need to discuss this memory from your upbringing.

Jamie makes bowling look hot. No wonder you married him.

Grandma said to let her know when Tori or Isabelle beat her one and only score of 39! Jamie needs "the King". Phil
