Ben and Val had an awesome day today, as did the Dads. We started out at the brand new Billy Beez at Crossgates Mall which is a huge indoor playground of very high slides and tunnels. They even encourage the parents to get in on the action, of which Jay and I had no problem doing.
We then headed to Lucky Strike Social (also in Crossgates), which is similar to Dave and Busters, but they also have bowling. The kids were having so much fun in the arcade, we didn’t even get a chance to bowl a game.
The Defreestville Fire Department has a brand new station and Ben and I went to the ribbon cutting. We got a full tour from a guy named Bob Ewing. Yes, as in Bobby Ewing, and believe it or not, he married a woman named Sue Ellen and he has a brother with the initials JR. Anyways, the tour was great and Ben and I learned a lot about how much hard work it takes to be a firefighter.

Our ride home today (from our night at Fenway) took nearly 5 hours instead of the usual 2 hours and 30 minutes because of major traffic. However it worked out because we took an amazing scenic route along route 2. We saw stuff we never saw before. It was the first time Ben appreciated nature and its beauty, which made it all the worth while. It would have taken us 6 hours if I stopped to take pictures like I wanted too LOL. We did stop one time though. I’m thinking a trip back in the fall might be in our future.
