Brandon's Birthday Bowling Bash
Buon Compleano Brandon
Today was Brandon's 9th birthday party. We originally planned to have it right before spring break, but Brandon got sick for three days and we postponed the party.
Brandon chose to have a bowling party. He invited his entire class, as is generally customary here. 15 of the 18 classmates enjoyed bowling, cupcakes, video games and general 8/9 year old crazieness.

????Not sure what this reaction was for???
The kids pooled all of their winning tickets together and picked out a present for Ms Partridge.
On the way home from the party Brandon told me it was his best party ever. I'm glad he enjoyed it. All the kids had a great time.
