Happy Birthday

DH celebrated his birthday yesterday. We had his favorite dinner, homemade tacos, and presents and then we went out to bowl. Unfortunately, all the regular bowling alleys were full with leagues, so we tried one of the large entertainment centers. We would have been okay, except a sorority from a local college had descended upon the place. Instead we played games in the arcade for a while and then returned home for root beer floats and a bit of TV to wind down. Everyone seemed to have fun. Here are a few pics.

 In lieu of cake--since we had ice cream floats instead, we set the candles in DD's Dunkaroo dip.

 The birthday card performed double duty as gift wrap.

A childhood holdover for DH is having "ee-yaw" fights with the empty wrapping paper rolls.
So our brown-eyed girl wrapped five of them as a gift and we had a little fun. :)

 Sonshine took the brunt of the hits.

And underneath the birthday card/wrapping paper was a barbecue grill thingy. You know, where you can secure fish or jalapeno poppers or what-have-you that otherwise wouldn't survive the grill on their own.

Happy birthday, DH!
