So on Friday night, our youth at church held a fundraiser for camp money or something. The fundraiser was a night of babysitting for all those weary moms and dads in the church who needed a night out. Steven and I of course didn't need the babysitting, but it was fun to go out with all of our friends who did drop their kids off. We met the Lyles, Penningtons (otherwise known as the "Penn S's), Boergers, Westlys, Skippers, and Alexanders at Main Event. We played a little pool and bowled. Needless to say, I am not the world's best bowler. I made a B in my college bowling class. Steven did great! He got a turkey at the end (3 strikes in a row)! I had a picture of the score, but accidentally deleted it. Here are a few pics from that night.

Here is a picture of Kaci Skipper. I think she looks a little fed up after her 8th consecutive gutter ball! Kidding Kaci! (although seriously, that girl loves gutterballs....) :)

Samantha is hopping up and down, begging her ball to straighten out. She was actually a very good bowler! Who knew?!

Steven has great form! He says his strategy is just to get the heaviest ball he can find and throw it as hard as he can. I think it works, he had the high score for our team.

The Skippers... for those of you who don't know, when a black light and old school rap are present -Kaci has some moves!

Jason and Allison are such sweet friends, I can't even think of any way to make fun of them.

Steven and me. I don't know why I look like I like him so much, he told everyone that his nickname for me is Mrs. Buttersworth (b/c of my poofy hair in the morning). They tried to put it as my name on the scoreboard, but the only part that showed up was "Butt", so for the night I was referred to as "The Butt". Nice.

Haley about to punish some pins. We were very impressed by her skills. That softball arm is still there Haley!


Some thoughts... said...

am i allowed to be jealous that you all get to hang out together?? i miss you guys!!

I am glad I could provide such entertainment...I might have a few more tricks up my sleeve if you hang around long enough. And the gutterballs - well, that was simply a gift of encouragement to the rest of you. I wanted everyone to feel great about themselves because at least they weren't as bad as me! No, seriously, I thought we were playing under golf rules therefore I skunked all y'all!

We miss you guys so much!! I wish we could have been there hanging out with you guys! (and had the babysitting- what a blessing!) I hope we get to see you guys when we are back for the few days before Costa Rica!

What fun! Next time you can take Dex to the Kids Night Out. He would love it.

Abby said...

Are you kidding, Haley? Poor Dex would probably get squished!
We had a blast...and wasn't it nice of us to let Steven win like that? You forgot to mention that his lane had 'gutter guards' on it! HA j/k, but maybe we could get some for Kaci next time!
