Jack's Golden Birthday

On January 6th, Jack turned 6 yrs old. He is our firstborn son, and such an interesting and neat kid. He really keeps us on our toes and makes us smile a lot! He is a talented little soccer player and loves to read. He loves to help his dad out around the house and be his shadow. He is such a help with Creed and loves to play with him. He is an excellent student and such a good reader!
For months, all he has wanted to do for his birthday is to go bowling and invite some friends to go along. Golden birthdays call for granting possible requests so bowling we went.

This is such a classic Jack pose! He struggles to smile for a camera.

Here he is with his buddy Asa.

And here is his other best friend, Ayden. Jack was so thrilled they could come and bring their families!

Like Addison...

And Anna Kate...Lizzy and she have some of the best smiles I know.

and Joshua with Add and Anne Michal...

And now for some bowling shots with these guys and the rest of the gang..

Austin taking a turn...

Anna Kate and Joshua look like they are doing synchronized bowling.

Asa must have knocked down a few.
Emma adjusting her hair on the way back to her seat. heehee

Christopher concentrating on his form.

A smiling Anne Michal.

Micah tried bowling with and without a ramp and did great with both.

The bigger girls would set the ball on the top of the ramp for Cara Beth and she would run and push the ball. It was very cute.

Emma and Austin checking scores. Please do not get me started on how bowling is all electronic and you don't even have to learn to keep score any more. And the worst is cartoon images of what is going on between bowls. Must everything be electronic. Sorry, just a mini soapbox there. ;-)

An expression of victory!


We ended with cake and presents.

I am so thankful you are my little(big) boy!!! I am glad you had a great golden birthday to share with such wonderful friends!

These are great, Rachel. Thanks for posting them. I'm glad Jack had a great birthday. My kids had a great time too. At bedtime, they all said it was their favorite part of the day.
