Pretty easy to see what the theme was. I had fun with the food on this one. Since everyone loves fruit I made the appetizers from last weeks leftover fruit dip, grapes, bananas and peel apart Twizzlers. I cut small pieces of cardboard down for the lane and covered them with tin foil.
Since my niece was not here to help with the creative decor I made the sign greeting all who entered.
Here is what it said:
|SB2 Bowling Alley, a combo of our last names, 1 "S" and 2 "B's", so it became SB squared.|
Here is the "Snack Bar" area:
We ate at small tables, bowling alley style.
I wish I could say we all bowled and it was a blast; however it was a blast with only Taylor, Nik and I bowling. Steve held the baby and put her to sleep while Vaughan and Sarah gave Illana her bed and to bed. Justin didn't want to bowl (he is still embarrassed by my Family Night dinners, he says we should just sit at a table like a normal family-- life with a teenager??), and his friend ended up on the phone with his friend that is a girl.
We played some 80's Pop Music via Pandora to set the mood and in about and hour and a half we called it a wrap
So that was our Bowling Theme Family Night.
Now the clean-up is done, the house is back to being a house and all are sleeping in bed.
Come back next week to see another of our Family Nights; Lord willing we do one and please share your own family nights.
