Big Girl’s birthday is this weekend. So, last night we celebrated with dinner out at her favorite restaurant, some fun bowling and capped the evening off with dessert at the local yogurt shop.
The bowling alley was crazy busy – which, I guess, is to be expected on a Friday night – but we had a great time regardless of the crowds.
The girls decided they want to go bowling every Friday night (uh, no, I don’t think so – too expensive these days!!!) and they actually bowled pretty respectable scores.
Big Girl, who is not competitive (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) at all, was obsessed with beating her DADDY’s score. And she almost did!
Well, I was just hoping that I’d break 100.
(I did, but just barely.)
SuperMan says bowling is like riding a bike – something you never forget. Well, that may be partly true – I did remember how to hurl the ball down the lane, but the knocking down the pins trick will take a little more practice.
The most important thing, though, is that this girlie had a good time. It was all about her last night – and I think we successfully celebrated her birthday – or at least started to celebrate it. I am sure there will be more to come, especially since her actual birthday isn’t for a few more days.
Happy Birthday, sweet girl. I love you so.
