Default Puzzle

A friend showed me the following [rather simple] little chess puzzle:

From the standard starting position, remove the BRa8 and the WPe2.
This is the position after White's 8th move. What were the first
7 moves?

Enjoy!

Nice! I assume that most people will need two attempts to solve it.

This was a spoiler for those who want to solve it with their first
attempt ;-).

Cheers,
