The following are pictures from our trips to Reno.
Like I said up above, both were for bowling tournaments. The first one was our annual Japanese American bowling tournament that Kevin and I bowl in. The second one was a Junior/Adult bowling tournament at the Reno National Bowling Stadium... Ken's very first bowling tournament. We are so proud of Ken. He bowled above his average of 45 every game. He bowled without getting frustrated or losing his temper... always cheering his friends on. Best of all, my parents were able to join us for this trip and were able to watch their grandson bowl in the huge stadium and spend the 4 days with us in Reno.

First weekend up in Reno:

Wow! You've been so busy!! Both posting & traveling. I didn't receive a Feedblitz update, maybe tonight...

Anyway, this all looks like so much fun! Ken's a super champ & must have been so proud. He's always so cute telling me about why this bowler or that bowler is great. I'm sure he was thrilled to meet a champ! I love seeing how much fun the whole gang had & Grandpa, too!
