By now, we should have learned.... it always rains on Samuel's Birthday!
But when our family and a few of his friends headed to Malibu Grand Prix Speedway on a sunny Friday afternoon, we were hopefully optimistic.
Just as we were finishing pizza and cake, the inevitable happened.....RAIN. This was no ordinary summer shower... this was a thunder-stomping, lightening-bolting, park-clearing rain.
We decided to load the kids' pockets with tokens and wait it out in the arcade.
After an hour and a half (and a couple hundred tokens later), the birthday miracle happened.....
the rain stopped - leaving us and almost no one else at the park!
With unlimited attraction passes, we packed in four hours worth of fun into a mere two hours with Go-Karts, Bumper Boats and Miniature Golf Galore. (And alas - no lines!)
Even after the rain passed, we still managed to get soaked!
Wet and tired, we ended the day at every boys' favorite venue..
our local Steak 'n Shake
Happy 13th Birthday, Samuel!
