Scott's Nickelcade Birthday

Scott doesn't like a lot of attention or hoopla for his birthday (too bad for me, since I adore planning hoopla) so we had a small get together at the Nickelcade in Orem & Scott's favorite meal at our house afterward.
The Nickelcade was a blast! If you bring a group of 6 or more they drop the addmition price & I bought everyone $3 worth of nickels to play with (too much, I don't think anyone used all their nickels).

It was also a pretty great place for kids. They are happy to just sit on the car games & pretend to drive, SkeeBall is fun just tossing the balls up, & they had all sort of little kid animal rides

All the boys found some game called Gauntlet & pretty much played it for an hour straight when we first got there. It was kind of cute. I mean, manly...


Here's a little taste of the festivities. Notice how it is blissfully empty- SO NICE! (ignore my "man voice" I'm sick right now)

Afterward we went to our house for 'build-your-own-burritos" & lemon meringue pie (Scott's favorite).

Happy 30th Birthday, handsome! Love you SO much!

Levi and I were talking about that place the other day. We were wondering if it was still around! We went all the time and loved it!!! It was a nice cheap date.

Oh man, the Nickelcade! Dang I wish I were there for that, I really would have enjoyed playing some serious Area 51. Glad you all had a good time and sorry I wasn't able to come, but happy birthday Scott and congrats on the big three-oh!
