About a month or so ago, me and the boys went to Sam’s Club (on a Friday) looking for some fresh shrimp and catfish, except the fresh seafood lady wasn’t it. BUT what we ended up with was some discount tickets for Putt Putt Golf (I had to break up the bowling. I think the 11yr old is a bit tired of it).
Anywho… so we went to the nearest Putt Putt Golf location to only find that though they did have a batting cage, they didn’t have any attractions. So we head out to the location out in Hurst because that’s the location the oldest wanted to go to.
Well, we get there and boy I should have known it was going to be packed. There were birthday parties all over the place. Children running around like lil’monkey’s out of their cage… it was really a site to see.
Well, unfortunately for the oldest, he missed being able to ride the big kid race cards by less than an inch… HmMmM! The Putt Putt dude could have let him on… come on… are you serious… LESS THAN AN INCH… Are you serious?
Anywho… the 11yr old opted for the Water Ride. The tickets we got from Sam’s was purchase one attraction get one free. It should have been more like… don’t purchase any tickets because the ride attendant isn’t one for following ticketing rules. The first ride he went on was free. The guy didn’t even ask for his ticket muchless check his wrist to see if he had an all day pass… But hey… today was his lucky day.
After riding the water ride and getting squirted at like mad crazy… and having water splashed on him, First Born decides he wants to check out the batters cage… Now why did he want to do this… and with me… My son knows that I am a very athletic person and that I am not one for wasting money…
For some reason, he conned me into believing that he was into the sport of baseball… heck, he has the bat, the mitt, the balls, the gloves… and the helmet… I thought he was a certified PRO at the sport… Boy wasn’t I fooled… He barely knew how to attack the plate… and to prepare himself for the ball… Needless to say, we are going to have to work on his batter’s stance… Heck, one never knows when it may come in handy… especially with bullies popping up all over the place…
