One of the rare pictures of Seth and mom!
We have been working on manners at our house. We've practiced saying "please," "thank you," and "excuse me," and a few other  manners like don't hit and look at someone when they talk to you. Our boys have been doing very well, and we can see the results all the time. When we started with please and thank you, we had a jar we filled up with marbles every time someone said one of those two things.

Well, we finally filled it up and the reward was going bowling. Dax always wants to go bowling. It is his reward of choice every time. So we had a free night last week and we went bowling. It was so much fun! Mark is old enough now to really be into it, and Dax was hilarious trying to carry a 15 pound ball to roll down the lane.

Here are some pictures of our latest family adventure.

I love Dax's intense face in this picture! He really wanted to get a strike.

Mark isn't quite as intense as Dax, but he likes to win.

Dax can barely lift this ball, but about half way through he would only use this blue ball.

Mark is doing a dance because he got a strike!

Seth got to have a turn on one of Dad's frames. The only frame he got a strike! 

Seth wasn't sure he wanted to let the ball go.

As you can see none of us are good, but I'm just glad I came out on top!


  1. Yay for being polite and filling up your jar!! What a fun evening!

  2. I love it when I beat my husband!

  3. Good job, Seth! We love bowling. We should do it more often.

  4. That's awesome. I love how intense Dax can be.
