Turning Twelve

Dominic I cannot believe that you are 12 now. The years are flying by! You are growing up to be a handsome, smart, fun, enthusiastic young man.

To celebrate your big day, we invited our friends and family to the local bowling alley. It was a big hit with everyone from the age of 2 on up.

First up was a game of bowling and munching on popcorn. I am pretty sure that we never even finished an entire game between the 15 kids and few adults playing. But it was fun and energy was released by all! So, it was a good thing. 

After an hour of bowling, it was time to eat pizza and sing happy birthday! The kids enjoyed their pizza and cake. I made a bowling ball cake and a bowling pin cake this year. They turned out pretty good!

Soon it was time to open presents and bowl until it was time to go. Dominic loved all his gifts and he is saving for some pretty big ticket items! (I am proud that he can now save money, he used to spend it as soon as he got it, heh)

Thank you to all of our family and friends who ventured out in the cruddy snowy weather to celebrate with us. We appreciate it and love you all!


  1. Great party! I hope Dom enjoyed the day. Victoria loved her 1st bowling experience, thanks for inviting us! xoxo

  2. This looks like such a fun time! I'm thinking this year we're going to have a bowling party for Tyler. He's never been and has been begging to go!

  3. I'm glad we got to celebrate with you!
    I seriously can't believe he's 12 already. Time flies! He's a good kid. A really good kid!
