Bobby's 8th Birthday, 2002

For 2002, Bobby decided he wanted a bowling party, complete with Harry Potter theme. It was a lot of fun for all as you can see from the photos.

The event was held at the Boardwalk Bowl...

Proper footwear is a necessity when bowling...

The kids watch as their names go up on the scoring screen...

Bobby sends one down the lane looking pretty good...

Some of these kids hve pretty good form for their age. Nobody respected the foul line, however!

Setting the ball down and then rolling it was also a popular strategy...

Getting down and watching the action at ball level was also thought to be helpful by many...

Bobby tries the down and dirty technique...

Bobby lost his balance on this one...

Gentlemen, choose your weapons!

Laura's looking pretty good here!

A few adults tried their hand as well...

Laura likes the little baby...

That ball looks very heavy Helen!

Linda won her lane...

Gourmet food to an 8 year old...

Or perhaps even to a more mature audience...

Time to adjourn to the Party Room for cake and ice cream!

Harry Potter was the theme for this party...

The decor was very nice, and Bobby got to keep the bowling pin, autographed by all the other kids.

The crowd waits outside, eager to come in and party!

There is an unbelievable treasure trove awaiting Bobby...

Bobby is seated right in the thick of the action...

There's a nice Harry Potter cake laid on...

The candles are lit...

And then blown out...

Since it was a Harry Potter party, the candles are magic, and relit themselves each time until doused in water.

Bobby had a lot of guests...

Laura likes cake...

 

That cake was very well received!

Another satisfied cake customer!

If kids are happy, moms are happy too!

Two very friendly kids!

Happiness is a goodie bag!

After the party there's just time for a little Arcade action!

Bobby is quite accomplished at destroying evil space aliens...

We opened the presents once we were back home. Bobby had quite a haul!

There were even Harry Potter games!

But Wait, Bobby Gets to Have 2 Birthdays!
