Put This Bowling Party on Ice

Leave a comment

To say that my husband and I learned our lesson after hosting our son Alex’s birthday party at our house would be an understatement. Never again will we go down that unsavory path.

From now on – and no matter what the cost – all birthday parties will take place at a venue that does not require me to do any cleaning or cooking. Oh wait….my house still qualifies under that description. Crap.

So when it came time to celebrate our son Nick’s birthday just 4 months later, the search for a new venue was on. Editor’s note: technically Nick’s birth date is 3 months after his brother’s, but because his parents can’t pull their heads out long enough to do anything in advance, we celebrated one month late. Please don’t report me to CPS. Again.

The bowling party went great. Nick got a duck pin with his name on it.

He worked on his duck pin form and mastered the art of knocking 4 or fewer pins down each turn.

The kids loved the choice of either pizza or hot dog, along with a soda.

And I loved that the bowling alley sold Smirnoff Ice by the bottle.

Even better? Having my husband be the designated driver. And that second bottle of Smirnoff Ice.
