Somehow we’ve already reached the end of the summer and it’s time to go back to school. But, as is our tradition, today while kids all around us went to their first day of school, we played.
We started off with crepes, Nutella, and turkey bacon for breakfast.
The went to Main Event and played some games. Space Invaders has gotten quite the modern update!
We played some air hockey and skee ball. Those games can be pretty intense in our family.
Giant Connect 4 turned out to be way more fun than you might think. And also pretty intense.
Cameron picked up a pool cue and started doing the jahng bong form right in the middle of Main Event. (Note: Cameron hates this picture because his stance is awful because he was just playing around.)
Fritz and Adrian attempted the gravity ropes. Several months ago, my brother came to visit and we went to Main Event. Adrian tried the gravity ropes, but he got too scared and came back down. This time he was determined to make it across. Fritz got too scared this time, but Adrian made it!
(Video of Adrian being brave.)
We played a game of laser tag before we picked our prizes and headed out.
We had pizza at Luciano’s for dinner. They have some of the most amazing pizza and their gluten free crusts are really good.
We ended the day with shaved ice from Bahama Bucks. Fritz said he must be making a whole lot of dopamine because he was feeling so happy.
