Really? I have to wear THOSE?!?

I was not ready for Leila and Kara to head back to school yesterday. It seemed like our winter break just flew by and we only accomplished a fraction of what I had hoped we could together. We didn't even have a chance to try out all of their new Christmas gifts. But alas, back to school they went and off we go into a brand new year!

I took the girls bowling a few days ago. This was another first for Kara, other than that of the Wii kind. When I set her shoes down on the floor beside her, she shook her head and said, "no thanks." I said, "No, Kara, you have to wear those. We all have to wear bowling shoes." She replied with a, "I have to wear THOSE!?!" lol

Hey, I don't like the shoes, but this is fun!


For me, there is nothing sweeter than watching my two "big" girls help their little sister out. :)

And maybe nothing quite as nasty as these horrific shoes! lol
I hope you are off to a great 2010!!

Hey, I'm with Kara, those shoes are horrible! We haven't gone bowling in awhile and with the weather as cold as it is, it sounds like a possible plan for this weekend. Fun pics!!

Kim said...

LOL! You'd think after all these years someone would come up with a much more fashionable shoe. What's a girl to do?!

Love checking in on your beautiful girls!

Gail said...

Lots of fun! yes those shoes are pretty awful, I'll agree. Hmmm...now you've got me thinking that maybe we should go bowling sometime!

Shanti said...

So funny! I agree-the shoes are a sight. Love the pics, though! You make the shoes actually look nice! lol

We just went bowling on Sat. ! Linhsey wanted to keep her 'new' shoes...hehehe.

JG said...

That's adorable! Sometimes you just have to suck it up and wear the ugly shoes ;)

Looks like fun...we went on New Years day and my 3 year old said the same thing with the shoes...needless to say she took them off AS SOON as we were done bowling!

Fun times in the bowling alley! We played wii bowling and then went bowling for real and my girl was so disappointed she didn't get strikes like with wii!

Have a great week!

Sweet!! (except for those rented shoes, haha). It's kind of fuzzy now, but I think we used to wear shoes like that in the name of style back in the 80s. Sigh... ;-)

LOL....that is so funny!! Yes, fashion goes right out the windown when you have to sport a pair of bowling shoes:)

Happy New Year Michelle! Hope that 2010 is a fantastic year for you and your family!

Cracks me UP!!!! And those bowling shoes are particularly awful - I don't blame her. Plus, there's the whole other people wear them, too, and they smell thing going on. But sometimes you have to just don ugly shoes to have fun. *grin*

Colleen said...
