What I've been up to: A Birthday Trip

I mentioned previously that we tried to think of "experiences" to give to our nephews for their birthdays, rather than stuff this year. The 5-year-old nephew was treated to a trip to a corn maze, and 7-year-old Kevin's birthday wasn't far behind. Although it was a few weeks after Halloween, we opted for a fun, spooky trip with Kevin!

Thanks to my Twitter friend Sarah, we found out about a monster, glow-in-the-dark indoor putt-putt place in Avon. By "monster," I don't mean "massively huge"- I mean, there were monsters everywhere:






The monsters didn't scare Kevin- he mostly thought it was cool everything glowed! Josh's shirt, especially glowed brightly.



Also, photos are hard to take in the dark.



After putt-putt, we headed to get pizza at the Pizza King that brings you your drinks on a model train. That's always a winning choice.


Reportedly, we hit all the high points of Avon, Indiana in one afternoon. Most of all, we had a blast with our favorite seven year old! We've got another "experience" gift lined up for him & his brother for Christmas- Shh! Don't tell!

Neat! I love that Pizza King -- who wouldn't want a train as their drink waiter?

I've been to Pizza King! My friends Melissa and Emily took me there my freshman year. I thought it was pretty cool. :-)

When I was a kid we lived on the NE side of Indy and we made the 45-minute drive to the Pizza King in Avon about twice a year. So fun!

I think my kids are still a few years away from being ready for the Monster Golf experience, but I'm looking forward to it.

OH, I think this looks very fun! We have vacationed in Cape Cod several summers with a family group and one of the 'must do's' is Pirate's Cove puttputt golf.
