A Day of Bowling and the Circus!

At the beginning of July, my parents, brother, neices, Morgan, Blake and I got together for an afternoon of fun.

We met up a restaurant attached to the bowling alley for lunch.  The restaurant happens to be along a river, so as we waited for our food the kids were able to watch the bridge go up for a boat to go under.  It was the first that Morgan and Blake had ever watched a bridge go up and they were very intrigued! :-)

After lunch, my brother took the kids out to the river to feed the leftovers to the ducks.  Being that there was no railing, then a huge drop to the water, I was really on edge and holding onto Blake's shirt...they're usually really good, but one little slip and they could have gone right over!

Once our bellies...and the ducks bellies...were full, we headed to the bowling alley were the kids played 2 full games with the help of the oldest cousin, a bowling ramp and bumpers :-)

When everyone finished up with their games, we walked across a couple parking lots and we were at the circus!  It had been forever since I'd been to the circus.  This one was just a little one, with one ring, one clown and many of the same people over and over again, but the animals and acrobats and stunts were pretty awesome still and the kids LOVED it!

I took a bunch of pictures, but my camera doesn't take good pics in the dark, so I won't make you try to look at a lot of blur ;-)

Morgan doesn't look too excited, but she really is...maybe just a little tired from all the excitement :-)

After the busy day, my parents stopped for ice cream (we had rode with them).  It had been really warm at the circus, so ice cream just sounded good.  It was a great end to fun afternoon with family :-)

I always thought those kind of bridges were amazing. Such cute pictures of the kids bowling. Just love the smile on Blake's face with the bowling ball! The circus too, what a fun day.

I've been wanting to do the circus for the boys. I hope to do it soon! It looks like you've been having so much fun!!
