Ashlyn had her 3rd birthday party yesterday and it was cute. Slightly white trash (thank you, Bel Mateo Bowl) but cute, nonetheless.
14 of her closest little friends came ready with pint-size, mad game. Most took the competition very seriously and waited patiently for their turn, in their assigned lanes. Others (the birthday girl, included) bowled in lanes that did not even belong to us. But they had fun.
After such a strenuous hour of competitive bowling, the kids were quite hungry. We had pizza and cupcakes in the special birthday room (that definitely smelled like bowling shoes). The birthday girl was more interested in the pink cupcakes than the pizza so Pop Pop distracted her with ice cream in the game room while all the other children ate. But she's not spoiled.
