|Ready for birthday fun!!|
We have a tradition in our family...on even years, our family celebrates birthdays by having a party.
On odd years, we do a family outing.
Sometimes that tradition is broken...for example, Kate hasn't wanted a party in years...preferring intimate outings with a small group of friends or family. But, for the most part, we stick to this tradition.
|Don't 'cha LOVE the pizza and soda all over his face?|
This year, being an odd year, it is a year for birthday outings...and Brigham has the honor of having the first birthday of the year. He choose to visit Boomers, a Family Fun Center in Fort Lauderdale. It's very much like a place I grew up with that was called "Bullwinkles"...
There is miniature golf, Go Karts, carnival rides, Bumper Boats, a big roller coaster, Laser Tag, bowling, and lots and lots of arcade games.
Everyone was really excited to go...
...we started with a round of mini golf...
|This was a very interesting excercise with so many different mini-golf levels of expertise...|
...and had a very "healthy" lunch of pizza and pitchers of soda. Then, we headed over to the Go Karts so Joseph could race around the track...
|Go, Speed Racer!!|
While Joseph did that, I took the littler kids to the Bumper Boats. I just LOVE the pictures from these boats...unlike the boats from when I was a kid, these have built-in continuous-fire water guns...and they were just getting SOAKED!!
|Oh Boy...if that isn't a "I'm-Gonna'-Get-'Ya" look, then I don't know what is!!|
Look at all these GREAT expressions!!
|Aahhh!! Brigham is SOAKING Savannah!!|
|She's gonna get him back!!|
|My kids try and corner each other for a good dousing...|
Then, we hit the carnival rides...
|Savannah is happy to fly!!|
|I love Nicolette looking through her legs down at Jason...|
|Put 'em up!!|
|Bring on the Pool Domination!!|
Happy Birthday, Bubba!!! We had a GREAT time with you today...it was an EXCELLENT choice for a family outing!! We can't wait to see what adventures this year with you brings!!
I Love You - Momma
