Sometimes the week isn’t just about swim class and cooking and trying to keep the house in order. This week we managed a weeknight where we actually let the boys pick an activity and go nuts with it. It helped that it was something I found amusing, but you can’t complain about a win-win.
I received a book for Father’s Day that includes a long list of activities the boys can try to goad me into for the rest of their lives. With Mentos and Diet Coke in our weekend past, I thumbed through the book to find something else to do. We settled on a demolition derby. First we found a couple of remote controlled cars. Then we headed into Max’s room to make some modifications.
The inevitable carnage.
A little anticlimactic, sure, but the kids had fun. The rest of the week was pretty standard, since we had some plans for the weekend. A while back when we were visiting the annual gathering of food trucks, Max wandered into a stall for our local indoor go-kart track. They had a big wheel set up that you could spin to win fabulous prizes. Max, naturally, won the best possible prize: a year-long discount card to the go-kart track.
Owen, sadly, was a bit too short to go crashing speedy things into other speedy things, so he took a trip with the mommies to the nearby trampoline park.
He still says he wants to go back. I guess we’ll think about it, since we do get a discount all year…
