Monday Fun Days: Birthday Edition

By Barbie   /     Jun 25, 2013  /     family  /  

My youngest son turned 10 last week on Monday.  Because he was still in school. we scheduled a birthday party with his friends for today at Boomers!  Youngest daughter and a few of her friends came along as well.  Can I just say arcade games, lazer tag, bumper boats, go karts and miniature golf! Oh My!

We started off in the party room with pizza, cake and presents. From there, we headed out for a round of miniature golf.  A very light rain was falling and I was hopeful that it would stay afar off so that we could finish our golf game.  After golfing, we went inside for laser tag and arcades.  Can I just tell you that it doesn’t take much time at all for a child to spend 100 tokens.  When it was all said and done, birthday boy ended up with about 870 tokens.  He joyfully bought a red laser gun with his bounty, which I believe was the highlight of His day!

Afterwards it was back outside for another round of golf and GoKarts!  We ended our day with a lemon lime Icee and turkey tacos at home.

How about you? How did you make Monday a fun day?  I’d love to hear about it in the comments below.

    I was hoping to spend my Monday watching my hubby play some softball (he’s semi retired from this sport now), but rain kept us home instead. Oh…HAWKS WIN! I don’t really watch sports but figured since I’m from Chicago I should say that. :) We did have the game on and fireworks were soon the sound coming from every direction and who doesn’t like fireworks. Happy 10th birthday to your son!

    Mini golf? Go-karts? Bumper boats? I wish I’d been there!
    Monday was spent continuing to paint my bedroom (taking forever), but had my newly wed daughter and her husband for dinner then we headed to the stadium for $1 night baseball (minor league). None of us except my son-in-law like baseball, but we went just to talk and have a fun night out.

    Well, your Monday sounds much more fun than mine! Happy Birthday to your growing-up son! I helped my husband build shelves in our basement. Hopefully they’ll house all of my plastic containers full of… stuff!
    Blessings to you ~ Mary
