It's what bowlers drink

This weekend, we took an impromptu trip to the local bowling alley.  I can't remember the last time we went -- I know it was before we had kids.  So, we thought it was about time to see how the kiddos would do with it.  End result: They had a great time!  I think we will do it again for SURE!  The local joint had bumper bowling and a metal ramp for the wee ones to launch the ball from so that it would actually make it to the pins.  It was perfect!  Toward the end of our (one) game, we realized it was lunch time.  (Who knew that one game would last so long... but, you have to test all the balls to be sure you have the "right" one, carry it (slowly) to the ramp, get distracted while waiting for the pins to reset, repeat.)  Anyway, we got some lunch from the food counter (yummy grease) and some orange soda.  The Little Man does not drink soda often (a sip here and there) but know it is good.  He was thrilled when there was a whole drink especially for him.  And, to top it off, it was orange.  He asked, "Is orange soda for bowlers?"  Yup, that is right, only for bowlers... :)
And, here are a couple other pics of the boys learning their new favorite sport:
