Nick Turns 10


My third oldest, Nicholas, had his 10th birthday last week (on the 18th), and in lieu of a party with friends from school, he wanted to go to the Pacific Science Museum 100_0572 with his best friend Andy, tour through the exhibits, and then go to one of the Imax 100_0545 films. While it was a bit wet outside (shocker), we had a blast, and ended up seeing the 3-D version of Three Flies in Space, or whatever that thing was called. The movie was so-so, but hanging out with 100_0580 Nick, Andy and my youngest son, Josh, was a lot of fun. Of course, sign me up anytime to go do something fun instead of staying at home and working down a list of house and yard projects.

100_0562One of the highlights of the trip was playing checkers on a giant board with coloured pylons. I crushed Nick and Andy. I completely dominate children under the age of 12 in just about everything I attempt. I’m thinking about adding that to my resume, just in case.
