An afternoon at the bowling lanes...

These pictures are from yesterday's post. I didn't have a way to download the pics from my camera. So....posted them today! My nephew Nate had a birthday yesterday and Grandpa wanted to take all the grandsons bowling for a birthday present. They all had a great time! Grandpa came away with the highest score of 320. Michael came next with 311 and then Nephi with a 284 score. The other boys quit after 2 rounds.

Russell helping Nephi get started.
Michael getting started. He actually loved this sport. He had a great time and said it was his most favorite thing to do of all.

Donovan got a gutter ball. :(

Nate the birthday boy.

Nephi after he sends his ball it's very slow but merry way!

The birthday boy (Nate) again with his dad (James) and brother (Raphael).

Look at all the bowling balls we had going! Raphael is up to bowl as well.

And then there's Grandpa Dysart. The mastermind of this really fun outing!

I'm so glad everyone had a great time! Isn't bowling fun?!

It's good to see James. I didn't realize he has two sons! (Although you've told me, I didn't remember!) And I can't believe what an adult your brother Joseph is ~ I remember when he was born!!

Have a Great day!

I just love this picture! The's the place to be!

I think this was in 2004. It was Nephi's first trip to the beach. The boys were all so little! My have they grown.

It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
