A few days ago we stopped at Golfland Sunsplash (a water park and family amusement center in Mesa, AZ) to see if they had bowling. They didn’t. So I spent $10 on a game card and we played a few arcade games.
I’m sure you’ve noticed by now that my goal in life for the summer months of Arizona is to get out and do something at least 4 times a week! We’ve been stuck in this stupid house for so long that getting out is pretty much the only way I stay sane. When we are at home the other three days of the week we read a lot and do crafts and color and play games. Oh and we play video games and watch a lot of TV! Quality time expenditures! I don’t photograph or talk about any of that, though, because… I don’t feel like it. lol
Like they always are, all three of the younger kids picked out what games they wanted to play in seconds. They are all very decisive children. Brooklyn takes after me as a child. I was incredibly indecisive. It was almost painful for me to have to make choices as a child! Now I’m blessed with a child just like that. It’s so frustrating for a mom! Sorry to my own mom! haha
It was literally 40 minutes into the hour we were there before Brooklyn chose her first game!! And those 40 minutes she spent trying to decide she was pretty darn moody and whiny!
By the end of the trip, when it was time to choose prizes with their 250 tickets I insisted that they choose one prize for 50 tickets (not a bunch of little prizes for less, that literally would’ve taken at least another 20 minutes and a LOT of stress for Brooklyn to make decisions! The fewer options she has the better!)
Brooklyn hated that and in the end she was the only one who got away with picking two prizes equaling 50 tickets instead of one.
I used the other 50 tickets to pick out candy and bracelets for all of them. Payson started complaining about the candy so I handed it to Sierra. Then Payson decided it was the best candy ever. lol, being a mom is certainly a lot of negotiation!
