Cancelled School Day

Due to the cold fridge weather, the Ann Arbor school system closed school for another day. This is now 2 days in a row. Wow! I remember when I was younger, we would have to go to school no matter what – yes, even in blizzards and freezing temperature. What has come of our generation now… Ha!

Christina and I decided to surprise the kids and take them out to Chuck E. Cheese. We had some gift cards remaining so it was going to be a fun and free time together as a family.

As we drove in to the parking lot, we were talking about how there will not be too many people there… but when we thought about it again and realized that since all the schools were closed that a lot of kids could potentially be there. When we stepped into the store, it was a mad house filled with kids.

But in a weird way, my heart was very elated. Why?

Because all these kids will play some of the game where it racks up the bonus point when they do not win. Then an adult (someone like me) would come and win the bonus points and get like 100 tickets… which I did 🙂

Then we went out for a fruit drink and just chilled together as a family.
