Fun times with family, food & bowling

And the celebrating continued Sunday for Steph's birthday. This was our family celebration at Red Robin for lunch. We had the best server who kept our drinks filled and the fries coming .....Steph is opening up a food processor....she had hinted she needed.
Gray is getting some momma grease. I think he liked it that baby Ivy was in his daddy's lap.
Baby Ivy is thinking, Let's get this party started, Already!
Noah and Abby are dancing to the funky music at the bowling alley. Abby is still attached to her wubbanub.
Mimi is trying her hand at bowling. It's been years and I only broke 2 fingernails. I have a better score at Wii bowling. At least I can say, I was the Biggest Loser out of 6 adults. I played against Nate, Steph's in-laws, Steph and my son-in-law. My grand-kids played in the lane beside ours. They had the bumper guards.... It was such an enjoyable day with ALL my grand-kids and family. My hubby was home with an awful sinus infection.....we missed him.
Carter really enjoyed bowling. He was so funny, he would roll the ball then turn his back and walk away, not looking at how many pins he knocked down. Gray was always trying to sneak in a few rolls here and there when it wasn't his turn.
Abby would roll the ball with the help of her daddy, then squat down to watch the pins fall. It was the sweetest thing.....
Gray really got into this bowling thing. He wanted every turn to be his.
I had to throw in this picture of my precious Noah. I think this was taken right before we prayed over our lunch. I just have to say, To All of this, I give thanks! My family means the world to me! This was a perfect family Birthday Celebration! And, I didn't even get a picture of the birthday girl bowling.....

Good times! Bowling is so fun. I think we should have a NWI Blogger Bowling night! There's lots of time to talk when it's not your turn. What do you think?
