I was trying to get a pic of Max and his cake and instead got a group shot! The cake turned out yummy, but after going to five stores and not finding plastic spider rings, we had to settle for an empty spider web. Here are some lovely "after the party" pictures since I am too much of a SlackerMom to actually get any good pictures.
After the food, cake and present opening, we went to our decrepit neighborhood bowling alley where I forgot to bring the camera! We bowled two games and I don't think Max broke 30 on either game, but he was smiling from ear to ear the whole time, so who cares about the score anyway? (BTW, bowling is expensive! $80 for eight people to bowl two games. Wow!) The bowling alley is decrepit, but kind of cool. It is a true midcentury relic. It's called Fireside Lanes and the lounge is so cool. Great pendant lamps hanging from a black ceiling and a big din0-rock fireplace that is probably never lit anymore. I should really get some photos for my neglected flickr group.
