Riley :: The 10th Frame, Appleton, WI

On Saturday, Amanda, Stephanie, Jessica and I went to Riley’s 4th birthday party. It was in Appleton at The 10th Frame bowling alley. Our old friend Chad, who I haven’t seen since I lived in Appleton almost 10 years ago, owns the bowling alley. It’s pretty old fashioned – no electronic scoring – but is kept up well, it seems. I kind of liked the nostalgia of it.

I only see Riley and her friends and family once or twice/year and it always amazes me how much they’ve grown! There’s only really one baby now, where a couple years ago it seemed like they were all babies. I just looked at the post I made after Riley’s 3rd birthday party and I wrote that same exact thing last year. Ha. Here are her 2nd and 1st birthday photos, too.

The younger kids all had bumpers on their lanes and just took turns throwing the ball down and hitting pins. A lot of them couldn’t even throw it hard enough to knock pins over, but they all seemed to have fun anyway. In our lane Amanda, Nichol, Chris, Stephanie and I played. Luckily, Nichol knew enough about bowling to figure out how to keep a running score. We checked it later on at home and a couple of the scores were slightly off, but everyone still came in the same order. Stephanie ended up winning by a lot!
