Fortunately, his birthday money pretty much covered the cost. It kept him busy the better part of a day, and he's played with it quite a bit, too.
Two thumbs up!
Two thumbs up!
Friends & neighbors all had a pretty good time. We even had enough tokens for everyone to play pretty much all they wanted. Back row - Sayer, Tristen, Erik; Middle - Andrew & Emily; Bottom - Alex, Sofia, Jake
Blowing out the crazy candles - Oops, missed 2
Pals since Kindergarten - Andrew, Sayer, Jake all enjoying their crazy glasses. Enough tickets to get a pinball machine!! Look out Uncle Dave, there's a new pinballer in the family!!
Little bits of snow and lots and lots of people. This was around 7:30 and it was supposed to last from 7 to 11? I don't think so! Unless they had truckloads waiting to be added.
Long lines for the bouncy water slides
Karen & I could have spent a lot more time in here. Jake was not in the mood for a lengthy, nor educational, stay. The day was still cold-ish, so we scrapped plans for the ocean and headed to Yuma for the night.
Jake was excited to learn he could ride most of the rides by himself. He was not too excited about the lines for the rides. We happened to show up the first day of California schools' summer vacation.
Erik & Karen played mini golf and saw some interesting things...
After a good soak - or was it before? - time for Dippin' Dots. The Dippin' Dots stores in the Valley have all shut down. They are one of the boys favorite treats. Has to be rainbow flavor, too. Notice the nice scab on Jake's nose? The School of Hard Knocks doesn't shut down for the summer; he tried to dive in the shallow end of our pool and caught one of the steps.
Unfortunately no sound.
