I asked Travis if he wanted to go see the movie Brave for his birthday. He replied that he didn't because he'd rather go bowling. Usually bowling would cost as much as a movie so I wasn't fond of the idea. But then some friends of mine told me that they have a Student Special for the summer. Students bowl 1 game for free - and receive a free hotdog. The only fee is for shoe rental. Since it was a good deal, I decided to surprise the boys and just show up at the bowling alley.
It was a lot of fun. Since the Student deal goes on all summer - every weekday afternoon - we may go back. Shoe rental is less than $10 and gives the boys something fun to do for about an hour.
