We invited about 10 of his friends, from New Horizon, his kindergarten class, and his after school program (a few of the boys are kindergarteners too, but not in his classroom).
We ended up having 8 little friends show up. That's a great turnout! And they all did RSVP, which is another small miracle. We were prepared to pay for more kids, and we had plenty of treat bags, but we just didn't know what to expect.
So, the party was at Brunswick and it was COSMIC BOWLING! HOW COOL! But it didn't make for good pictures :)
The kids got right to bowling.
Here the kids are doing the limbo. Good ol' Grandma Rose got right in there and played with the kids. I was perfectly content to take pictures and video :) :) :)
OMG. The Chicken Dance.
I did jump in for the last minute of the Chicken Dance. I can honestly say that was the first (and last) time I intentionally did the Chicken Dance. I wanted to live in that moment, no matter how dorky!
The Golden Birthday Boy announcement!
And of course, CAKE! Pokemon cake!!
And then the boys got hyper. Glow stick wars. Oh. What. Fun.
We exclaimed many, many times that this was the best birthday party we've ever been to. The bowling alley took great care of us and the 90 minutes flew by! There was lots to do and it was pretty well controlled. Well, except for Russell.
Happy Birthday to our James!!
