We Bowl! Corey Williams - Baby Child Photographer - Chapel Hill

Every now and then we do something so fun, that I want to do it again right away. And last weekend, we went bowling. WG has been asking to do it forever. Mel takes her through the parking lot of a bowling alley on their secret way to school. So, it's a regular request. What I didn't realize is how much we would all like it. We had a blast, and I learned a lot too!

Here's what I learned.
1. My mom hasn't been bowling in at least 15 years. She didn't know they had electronic scoring.
2. For WG, there's nothing better than beating your parents at something. If there's a big scoreboard...well...that's just a bonus.
3. Those little contraptions that look like walkers really help little kids bowl. Wow, the kids bowled in the 150s.
4. Apparently, there's no bowling in Brazil. Sorry, Feffie. And if there is, it's a lot like pool. And they use gutter guards like the sides of the table.

Here are some of the highlights

Stuck in Bed - Time to Think About a Party!

So, I've come back from a rockin' New Year's in Chicago, only to catch the stomach bug that my kids are getting over. It's just been a day, but spending a day in bed makes me crazy. What to do? Plan Cage's first birthday party of course. Okay, okay, so it's still three months away but it takes me a while to get ready for a first birthday. They are my favorite! Absolutely no input from the little ones! It's all about cute stuff!
For Mr. C, I'm leaning toward a Rubber Duckie theme. I found some sweet inspiration online. An Aussie-based stationary design/mom Alannah Rose. So, I can't put him in a tutu, but I'm considering using her gorgeous invites, even though they are - gasp - fill in the blank! Check her out at

I was also inspired by this gorgeous "story board" pulled together by Nounces Designs. I think I'm leaning toward the blue since Mr. C is a boy, but I may have to pull in some bright orange for yummy contrast with the blue... We'll see! Stay tuned!
