Day 20

I had a horse just like this in my bedroom as a teen!

But again, I digress. Today our friend Alan took us and our combined kids to an amazing arcade in the very cute town of Manitou Springs, CO.

There was everything from relatively recent video games like Mario and head to head fighting games, to 80s favorites like Galactica and Asteroids,

to pinball and skeeball (which my daughter loved),

to actual penny arcade amusements dating back to the late 1800s!

Everything was it’s original price, so a penny for the English Football, a nickel for the old time shooter, and a quarter for 9 skeeballs. $5 entertained each kid for two hours. They deemed it awesome, and I have to agree.

Somehow, I don’t think driving across Kansas tomorrow will be quite as exciting.

  1. While searching for reunion photos, I came across one of your little cousins on that horse wearing PJs and cowboy hats. 🙂

  2. I am totally loving your travel-log. No reply necessary, just HAVE FUN and give the kiddos a squeeze from me.
