Terri wanted to do something special for my birthday last weekend. She settled on a surprise party.

Since I am a bit shy, especially when the center of attention, she organized the party to coincide with our weekly bowling practice. That allowed everyone to enjoy bowling rather than always be focused on the party. The end result was a lot of fun.

We had a nice spread of food to choose from. That alone was wonderful. Usually we rush to eat before arriving at the bowling alley, or we hold our hunger until we can go out after bowling is complete. Of course there was a birthday cake.

Everyone seemed to have a good time. It is a lot of fun just going bowling with friends, and the party atmosphere just added on top of that.
