Last weekend we were supposed to go camping. The boys had been asking to go camping so we found a weekend we were (relatively) free and booked a campsite. Everyone was super excited! Then we started looking at the long range forecast & it didn't look good. And it kept getting worse. They were forecasting 40's for the lows & rain all day Friday and Saturday. Thankfully the campground we were planning on going to has a very liberal cancellation policy so we cancelled and got a full refund.
Instead of going camping, we wanted to do a family fun day. The boys wanted to fish and play mini golf while camping so we thought we could do that locally. But we got the crappy weather that was forecast so Saturday was super cold and rainy, limiting us to indoor things only. We made the best of it and had a really fun day!
We started at Magic Mountain Fun Centers. We had a Groupon that was expiring which allowed the boys to play in their play area and then all 5 of us to play laser tag. The boys loved their play area and were in it playing for over an hour. Then we headed in to laser tag and played adults vs. kids. We had a fun time running around and shooting each other. I think the adults won, but I'm not really sure. We finished up our time there with some air hockey, video games & skee ball.
We thought we were done after that but what family day would be complete without ice cream?!?!? We stopped at Menchie's on our way home and loaded up on frozen yogurt and toppings. They have a peanut butter cup flavor right now that is awesome!
So while it wasn't the weekend we had planned it was still a pretty awesome weekend. Around all the fun stuff on Saturday we also played a lot of video games, watch a lot of football and got a few things done around the house. And everyone was really happy which is always my end goal!
