We stopped for ice cream and grabbed the boys another cheeseburger before heading back to the farm. Once again, these kids sure can eat.

I felt like I was in my office here at the Troy Daily News.

His first present was packaged up as a sweet snow day due to the extreme cold and ice.

Each kid took a turn of picking one major thing that they each wanted to do and and Skechers Flip Flops Ladies Uk

In the interest of full disclosure, I really was the one that wanted to check out the place since the kids had already been to the mega entertainment center.

Tales of an overnight adventure with three fourth graders

It was during this weekend excursion that I got a glimpse of what teenage life is going to be like.

We took the kids out to eat at Bob Evans and it was there I knew I was going to be out numbered (but not out witted).

after feeding the crew, we headed to Scene 75 which was lit up like Vegas minus the slot machines.

I watched in awe as the boys inhaled their dinner in less than 3 minutes. If I were you, I invest in all of Miami County grocery store chains because these kids can really shovel it down.

These fourth grade boys mostly talked about the following: video games, girls, sports and bodily functions.

jokingly posted how I believed the place got its name because parents have never $75 go so fast. boys quickly signed up to do Laser Tag and then we wandered around to see what other games the place had to offer.

One day they be too big and grown up to build forts out of blankets. Some day soon Mbt Sale Sandals

they be too cool to hang out with their mom at an arcade.

The boys decided they wanted to check out the bumper car area. To me, it looked Vans Rose like floating zero turn lawn mowers on hovercrafts.

Running out of time and out of money, I rounded up the kids for one more time of Laser Tag and a few games. I managed to out of there with my bank account in tact.

And it was then I knew there was no turning back the hands of time.

I overheard their topics of conversation on the way down to Dayton.

Sometime in the wee hours of the morning, they managed to move all my kitchen chairs and grabbed all the available blankets for their cave built in front of the television.

The boys spent the rest of the night being boys. until I finally shut down the Wii and made them fall asleep, more for my sanity than on principle.

But at least for one weekend, they be best buds just hanging out in a blanket fort and playing video games until the wee hours of the morning.

They loved it because what 10 year old boys doesn like crashing in to each other at full speed?

As part of his celebration in lieu of pricey birthday gifts, I offered to host his two closest friends for an overnight evening as well as treating them to a few hours at the huge entertainment complex called Scene 75 in Dayton.

luckily one of the kids chose to do the bounce area which was the best return of investment.

Evan woke up and celebrated his birthday in a fairly calm, boring manner. Luckily I had bought a few presents during the after Christmas clearance so I had something waiting for him to open up on his special day.

The boys argued which NFL team was going to win the Super Bowl the following day, which girl they liked in school and throw in a few bathroom humor jokes and that was my night.

I lined up to put money on a swipe card after numerous parents warned me that $100 goes pretty fast at this place.

While they may be growing up fast talking about girls in between video games and sports it was a nice reminder that they are still little kids.

In the not so distant future, they be begging me to take them to the mall or to pick up their girlfriends to catch a movie.

In the morning, I found all three boys fast asleep in a fort.

Soon enough, they be too cool to give me a hug good bye as a gesture of thanks for a fun evening out on the town.
