We attended one of my son’s best friend’s birthday party. In fact, he’s more than just a friend. He’s family. You could say he is a brother from another mother. Their friendship and thus, our friendship with his family began many years ago when I started coaching baseball with his dad. Our typical birthday celebration includes the traditional cake and ice cream and fellowship amongst the family. After the cake and ice cream, it’s time for the finale, a trip to the bowling alley. I typically don’t bowl. I like hanging out and enjoying the company of family and friends.
