Today was the big day - the big boy turned 4. The only thing he wanted to do for his birthday was have a bowling party. I thought I had it down, we booked a morning party to avoid "league bowling". I picked up the requested sprinkle donuts and juice boxes. As I drove to the bowling alley, I thought, things are really going smoothly...then I got there: bowling alley closed! Luckily, the coach from the high school team was talking to the owner on the phone - she saved the day! By they time the first guest arrived, all was well and my 4 year old never knew I almost had a panic attack in the bowling alley parking lot. Happy Birthday Bug!
