Boys, Birthday Parties and Bowling

Photo-A-Day 2.0 #00061

Andrew had a bowling birthday party today. I am home sick for a few days but was able to suck it up for a couple of hours and take him to the party. I knew it was going to be loud and chaotic so I gave Allison a break. The party was a nice one. It was for the boys in Andrew’s class. So, it was a bunch of hyped up little guys each trying to outmatch each other. Lots of posturing and trying to get the best or funniest or whatever. It is good that I went because I see what sort of kid Andrew is and makes me proud that he is out in the world.

He ended up winning the entire thing, too. Not that anyone was really keeping score. But he nearly broke 100 (98) and he was the closest by far.

Another Birthday, another start to a year of taking a Photo-A-Day.

Today was my 40th birthday. We started out with breakfast over at Northworks. An excellent meal all around. The kids were pretty good for the most part. Andrew had fun playing all around in the space between the wall and the table. He looked like a little comedian there. We dropped Eva off at school and then went home to relax for a little while before heading back to pick her up from school.

We didn’t do a lot of relaxing but instead went over to the La Salette Shrine and walked along their walking trail. It is a really nicely groomed trail with lots to see including ducks and frogs. I’m sure there will be other critters there through the summer. We will go back to tire out the kids.

For the afternoon we headed back over to pick Eva up from school and then we stayed at my parent’s house and had a nice dinner and then we all went bowling. It was great to have both my sisters and my parents as well as my brother-in-law our “adopted” brother there to celebrate my birthday. It was really nice. Continue reading Year 10 Begins Today
