Happy Birthday to ME!
as most of you know, I had a birthday last week. My older boy, Sean, came home for the weekend so we went out and had fun, fun, fun! Near Santa Rosa is a franchise called Scandia (see Scandia.com) that has two miniature golf courses, a go-cart raceway, a big arcade full of machines and such and inner tube-boats with built in water guns. Of course we tried all of them, starting with the putt-putt golf. Lots of fun and competitive. The boys couldn’t resist this test of strength ---Max won with a top score of 899! The go-carts were tight to handle and the course was windy (lots of curves!) but I floored it the whole way ---and still came in last. But it was still fun. Max took it all too seriously but beat both sean and me. Steve was the master photographer for us. Lastly, the water boats ended up being quite wet but we had many battles and lots of screeching (the water was cold!). I managed to get one up onto the photographer too. All in all, the day was extremely entertaining but it was good to get into a nice warm car at the end of the afternoon!!!
