Birthday Party Fun

Today was Cody's 16th Birthday party! For a boy, he didn't seem to want to have a big to do over it. ;0) Nothing like Krissy's sweet 16, where she did want some attention. Boys and girls.
My best friend Mara threw the party at Southtown bowling alley. I've never been to a party at a bowling alley before so this was fun! She had us bring our family, Kris had to work. And as a family we got to have some family fun.

Here is the group that came, all boys!

Gideon tried bowling but I think he
got nervous in front of everyone and didn't
want to do it anymore. But he loved the video

Gabe loved bowling but when he saw
Gideon leave for video games he wanted
to be in on that action.

Seems like I always end up taking a pic
with Gideon and Dad takes a pic with
Gabe...... Funny

Mara and birthday boy Cody!

Trying to take a picture with my husband
he just loves to look at me when we take pics
wonder why?

See here is dad with Gabe!

The boys enjoying their soda and chicken

Gabe is quite the little bowler, his form is
great! And they had bumpers up for him!

This was a good pic, Mara's dad, who also
was my childhood pastor is sitting with
my husband having a good time.

It was nice, in this picture you can really see my husband smiling. He looks like he is having a good time. Before we got there his arm was bothering him from a cupboard mishap last weekend and he wasn't going to bowl. When Dale asked him about bowling and made it seem like a friendly competition, then Dj was all for it! To watch him laughing and having a good time, without the current stress that his life is and really know he was geniunely enjoying himself. Made my heart soar. And almost brought a tear to my eye. I am so thankful for this day and the memory we had as a family.

I pray Cody had a wonderful day and felt special. I am thankful to my friend for inviting us to be a part of this special day and for giving our family so much more than she would have known. Also being very special being that we had some years where we weren't able to talk to each other, ten years, so we missed some birthdays. So this was a very special time all around.

So the cake was so delicious and it left me wanting more sugar! So I made cookie brittle. Yum. I had no eggs to make the cookies so I went for the brittle, even better!

What a great day!
