Day Off in San Angelo


All birthdays in our family are a big deal and are celebrated with much energy and festivity,  but the thirteenth birthday is a REALLY big deal.
For the each of our thirteenth birthdays, we get to pick a very special activity/outing and invite a crowd to participate. =)
Denver turned thirteen the beginning of last month. For his “bash” he choose bowling with the whole family.
(automatically he has a crowd with that choice!)
We had his dinner/cake/presents then but with everything that was going on last month (Christmas Play, company, Christmas, getting ready to leave on tour, etc etc)
we didn’t get to doing the bowling until Tuesday of this week when we had a day off in San Angelo, TX.

(seriously, he is NOT OLD enough to be a teenager! how can my baby brother be a teenager?!)
The whole gang
Rebecca prepares to roll her ball…
intently watching the scores
like father, like son….
This is an all-time classic.
my favorite shot of the day. =)
The name Bontrager” & the word “competitive” 
mean basically the same thing.
above, Taylor has a moment of frustration after a bad roll. 
Knowing how much we love Chick-Fil-A, some dear friends of ours gave us a Chick-Fil-A gift card!
It was the perfect day to use it…we found a brand-new double drive-thru Chick-Fil-A in town and bought lunch!
today I am thankful…for a big family to make memories with. 
thankful for all the competition we have together. 
thankful that we can have fun being competitive.
 thankful for friends’ generosity in blessing us with lunch. 
thankful for a day off after an extremely grueling schedule.
thankful that even though we miss home we can be joyful knowing we are where God wants us.

  1. Hi there Bontragers – we used to live in Minnesota but now we're in Missouri – sorry we'll miss ya up there! I have a question – how did you get the whole bowling alley to yourselves? Looks like a fun time. We like to do that sort of thing once in a while, but sometimes the bowling alley has music and videos that we aren't comfortable with. So that is why I ask the question. Have safe and blessed travels. Maybe we'll see you at the ATI conference in Big Sandy.

  2. Sheri,

    I think the key to an empty alley must be the time you go! We went bowling on a Tuesday morning, around 10am, and we had it totally to ourselves the entire time. There wasn't music playing (or if there was, it was really quiet because I don't remember it) and my dad asked the owner guy to turn the TV's off. =) Sometimes you just gotta ask! (I'm sure it helped that we were the only ones there so there was no one else to care about the TV's)

    Chelsy, for the Bontragers
