My beautiful mother-in-law recently bought Malachi the cutest pair of sunglasses because the poor baby has, well, baby eyes that are very sensitive and he just doesn't like it bright and sunny. I can relate to him. When I was younger and realized that tanning was something that teenagers did I had to get these cool little eye covers that had smiley faces imprinted on them just so that I could lay there! And now, I am a habitual sunglass wearer... although now mine can usually be found on top of my head holding my hair back. hehehehe And maybe someday, when Malachi actually has hair, he can use them to do that too... but for now they will be used so the sun won't bother his precious eyes. So anyway, I've been in hunting mode for the perfect little beach hat to go with them. And I just happened to find it the other day at one of my all time favorite stores...
Oh, I could get in some serious trouble in here! Heh heh heh Ü
They have the coolest stuff and maybe one day I will take my camera in and give you all the 'inside' scoop and you can see for yourself why I think it is the most awesome store!
But for now, take a gander at this all-too-cool little surfer dude hat that I bought.
Dude! He's like Totally Gnarlatious!
Isn't it just the cutest thing!
Cowabunga! heh heh heh
I think his hat is like too Totally Radical... don't you think so too?
I just wish they came in bigger sizes cause... Hey!... Ooooh... what is that I can see?...
It's... Baby Digits!
Awww... Beautiful little Baby Digits!
Noah and I decided that it would be fun to go to Alley Katz to go bowling. We had not been there in quite awhile and I was very impressed as they had really improved the place. It used to be rather dark and dismal and had that old bowling alley smell... you know the one I'm talking about, nothing else can describe it... it just smelled like an old bowling alley.
I was told that there had been a movie filmed there and the day the film crew packed up, the place was demolished inside and redone, very nicely too I might add. I approve, it is very bright and cheery! The seating is very cushy and nice almost like you were sitting in a living room... it's comfy like that.
And they also updated the scoring computer thingy which is really nice... even I could figure it out... and they use the space next to the score screen for advertising... like this-
What a deal, eh?
Of course, we didn't know about the great deal until we saw it being advertised and we had got there at 3:30 so had to pay full price for the shoes and the first two games but the guy did let us have the last two for the 99 cent price as they were started after 4:00.
So next time we go we will know... and so will you!
And I guess I should clarify that it was Noah who went bowling as I was just his chaufer and bowling coach... and picture taker!
So, I explained to him the fundamentals of bowling... showed him how to properly hold the ball, where to stand, how to walk and release the ball and the follow through... and he gleaned every bit of information I had of my vast knowledge of bowling skills... that I acquired back in sixth grade when our team won the first place grand trophy...*pats on the back*... Oh, those were the good ole days! heh heh heh
And then it was time to put this knowledge into practice...
Here's the approach...
(good thing he had a tight grip, eh?)
The release and follow through...
Pretty good, if I don't say so myself... which I think I just did! Ü
A chip off the old bowling ball I think!
But it wasn't long before he promptly tossed all my awesome professional instruction aside and decided he wanted to develop his own style...
All I can say is... Good thing he was using bumpers!
I think he is trying to put a curve on the ball by hooking it?
I don't think it was working on the bowling ball but his body definately has a good hook to it! Ü
A bowling contortionist?
At times I had to wonder whether he thought he was at the baseball field instead of a bowling alley?
Then I began to feel sorry for Mr. Bill... the poor bowling ball, he was being subjected to all that bouncing...
Noah was merciless...
Bye-bye Mr. Bill!
And there were things that made me realize that even though the bowling alley had gotten a new look it had the same old character to it... like this advertisement for instance-
Hmmm... Yep everybody, mark your calendars... Tuesday night is 'SIN' night at the bowling alley! Yay! Seriously though... I wonder what kind of shady characters show up for 'SIN' night? Well... in case any of you are wondering... I won't be making it... it's past my bedtime, but... you know... you all can go if you want to... I'll just stick to this-
