So it was my niece Madison’s turning 4 birthday bowling bash.  The kids, and the adults had fun, it was an intimate party with family members.  So no, both my brother and sister beat me,  not by much though, both games !  I am not competitive however, I like challenges.  I hardly ever bowl, however I hold my own.  This is embarrassing, I believe my mother and father use to be in a bowling league and they were pretty darn good!  I will have to confirm that.

During Christmas break I went roller skating for the first time after 11 years, and I did fine.  I got to share this experience with my niece and nephews and they were all great on skates.  I was a little wobbly at first and then it was smooth sailing except on my turns and skating backwards.  I enjoyed myself. Skating seemed so effortless until we left the facility and we were outside chatting, I started to feel sluggish and a little pain in my legs, you do not realize the energy you put out.  I understand the obvious of not having skated in a while, and the different muscles being used, however, even a little pain will not deter me !
