Drew's 7th Birthday

Home Up Page 2 Page 3


    Drew wanted to have a bunch of his friends over for a sleepover this year for his birthday, to be followed up with a big party someplace (Safari Playground and Chuck E. Cheeses were ideas tossed around...). We finally settled on having three friends over to stay the night, and a party with the rest of his friends at Holly Lanes. Unfortunately for Drew one of his friends couldn't make it to the sleepover, and one more wound up being sick, so it was just Drew and his friend Tevin for the night. This worked out ok, as they got to spend some quality time together annoying the crap out of everyone else in the house!

    As I stated before, Drew's party was held at Holly Lanes. We arrived shortly before 2:00pm and got the bowling party underway. We got an hour of bowling (or so... it actually worked out to slightly more than an hour before the pizza arrived). The kids all got at least one full frame in during this time. Around 3:20pm the pizza arrived - thankfully, since the bowling alley has changed ownership, they do not make the same old "cracker and ketchup" pizzas that they used to serve... it is now ordered in from Happy's Pizza. The kids all ate a couple of pieces, and a few even got to get thirds. Since we were limited by time at this party, we moved right along from the pizza to the cake. We sang "Happy Birthday" to Drew, and he got quite embarrassed by the whole spectacle. I found it quite amusing, however!

    Once the cake was devoured, we moved right along to the opening of the presents. Drew got a lot of great gifts this year, but the Hex-Bug things seemed to be the popular choice. He also got some Lego's, which he worked diligently on putting them together without any help from anyone else. His loving parents and siblings gave him an iPod, which might be his favorite gift so far. I have to admit that at this point I am finding it annoying that it never seems to leave his hand (the same goes for Samantha and her iPod, though).

    Drew really wants to thank everyone who was able to join him for his birthday celebration. He had a great time with everyone who was there. His mother and I would also like to thank everyone, as it was an enjoyable time for not only Drew but Tara & I as well. Again, thank you!
