Rolling and Rolling

Ah, nothing quite like a birthday party at a bowling alley…. Interesting, though, as our community has evolved, about all of our bowling alleys have been replaced with shopping centers. Except for the one at the local University. One of my son’s friends had his party there… Yee ha!

-----------------------------------------------

We finished off Saturday with the regional competition of the Cub Scouts’ Pinewood Derby. My son’s car had placed 3rd in the Troop competition, qualifying him for regionals. So yesterday it was off to Greenville (about 40 minutes east of us). It was a lot of fun, and he finished 34th out of 76 cars from all over the area. Around 1/10th of a second behind the winner, very close competition!. In the photo, he’s in the far lane.
