She's actually thinking a lot smaller than most of her firends, knowing that the budget is tighter for us than most all of her close friends.

She said while going to the really cool bowling alley would be nice, she knows that it's to expensive. With that, I looked at the other bowling alley close to us. They could go bowling for 2 games, with 6 on each lane and it would only run me $81.00. That includes the cost of shoes. That seems a lot better cost. Same distance to both from our place.

So, I think that is what we are going to do. She also said something about water balloons again, but we will see about that later. All of the kids she has said she was asking would love the water balloons. Over half of them are going to another party the week prior that is going to have water gun tag being played. These kids don't have an issue with getting wet, then hanging out.
Well being its her 16th birthday i dont see that the bowling party and pizza is extravagant at all! That is downright reasonable for a girl and her 16th birthday!

This is one of the big reason why I want to get bang for my buck. She knows what the money issues are. She knows how hard it has been with extended unemployment and major health issue bills. She's given up things because we don't have the budget for them. She isn't asking for the moon and the stars with this party.

She did joking tell her uncle last night that he totally ruined her wickedly awesome 16th birthday plans, when he didn't buy the house the the pool that he looked at. If he had bought that, she would have wrapped him around her little finger, working on a huge pool party and cookout.
