When the rain never stops and the kids are going nuts, take them to Prosperity Lanes bowling in downtown Grass Valley. The helpful gentlemen behind the counter gave us shoes, light weight bowling balls, and helped us set up our lane for an hour’s play. Several other families had the same idea, so we were comfortable playing badly and bouncing our balls down the lane. They have bumpers in some of the lanes, so the kids’ balls stay more or less on course. Each time they knocked over a pin, they squealed with delight. They could shout and squirm around, but were good about waiting for their next turn. Our hour went by quickly and they all thought they were champions…. A delightful rainy day activity….
