We were really looking forward to this day! This would be Patrick's first birthday where we were really together....and though money is a big subject right now I wanted the birthday to be fun and "rememberable"...if that's a word. ☺
So date night for this month was.....bowling!!! Patrick really wanted to go bowling and it took awhile to find someone to go with us but ended up having a WONDERFUL evening. The couple has been coming to our church for a little over 6 months and this was an awesome opportunity to get to know them. We played aournd 4.5 games (hourly rate) and boy was I sore the next day.
The bowling allee is on the American base so we got to enjoy some American food (Intalian sausage pizza) and....free refills! Its great. In Germany you pay almost double the amount for your drink and NO refills!
We were doing so much laughing, teasing and talking.....hehehehe....fun fun memories.
|Here I am bowling a strike....my first one.|
Sundays we normally just stay at church so we don't have to walk home....this Sunday was no different....well it was. We had like 25+ people there and cake, laughter, games, singing....
Here are some pictures:
|Patrick being silly....me with a weird smile.....oh and we tried Peanut Butter Oreos for the first time!|

|I made Patrick a yummy Axis and Allies birthday cake.....turned out pretty sweet...and really American. ☺|

Oh, in case you were wondering....nope, he is not named Patrick for the holiday....he's a junior....pretty cool, huh?
