Alex's 7th Birthday Party

Alex wanted a bowling birthday party this year, so we invited his friends to an afternoon of bowling on his birthday. Junction Lanes provided a great party....and I do mean provided - they did everything from set up to clean up. We even had our very own "Party Hero" at our service the entire two hours. Everyone seemed to have a great time and I know my two did. The pizza and ice cream cake came along with the party, too, and were good tasting to boot.

Friends, fun, and food make for a great birthday party for a 7 year old.

My life was blessed 7 years ago with my first little boy...and everyday since then I thank God for him and the joy he brings. Love you little man!

If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
