Hannah's Birthday Party

March 4th was Hannah Marie's 15th birthday. She celebrated it yesterday, Saturday, with bowling at Mardi Gras Bowling Lanes on Madison Avenue. Aunt Wendi and Cousin Katie flew up from So. California. It was a family affair, the two friends she invited were not able to come. Aunt Jenni and cousins Melody and Andy were there, along with Granddad and Tutu, Hannah's sisters Ashley and Emily and great aunt Linda. Oh, and her mom too! Hannah and her birthday cake with a bowling theme. Mom Elizabeth is the family cake maker and it's always exciting to see what she comes up with for each one's birthday cake. Well, I should clarify, the family that live here in town.

We had cheese and pepperoni pizza and root beer to drink, and of course we all enjoyed birthday cake. The cake is always chocolate, that's everyone's favorite. Elizabeth tried a new recipe for making the frosting and it was good. After about 2 hours of bowling, everyone was tired and ready to go home for a nap.
I was a little disappointed. I was not able to get very many good pictures. I took my Canon Power Shot camera because I hadn't used it in a long time and it was not doing very well. Joyce, Katie's mom, had a newer model of the same camera and on the Idaho trip it completely quit. George, her husband, had to get her a new camera before he flew up to Idaho a day after they did. I should have taken my Casio Exilim.


  1. Looks like a fun time was had by everyone. Your photos look great. Bowling alleys don't usually have the best lighting for picture taking. I love the cake.

  2. soooo cute! I love the cake too!
