My middle son, Logan had a sleepover for his birthday. These are crazy, hectic affairs where the primary goal is too make sure that everyone has so much fun, they get sick. And I think that all of his friends, eventually, did. First, we went to a Japanese restaurant. Here, the 6 boys, ages 7 to 12, went crazy. They ate too much food, chewed on some chopsticks, and provided entertainment (free) to the whole back room of the restaurant. We were happy to be of service to so many quiet families that obviously would have been bored had we not been there. After we were stuffed to the gills, we took the kids to play Laser Tag. Here, my youngest son told everyone that he was on their team and then shot them in the back when they were not looking. 7 years old is not too young to start your kids on the path to cheating. If they learn young, it will just become a way of life. We were so proud. He won, too! And, as we planned, it began snowing while we were at Laser Tag. Nothing is too good for our son. We planned the snow at least 2 weeks in advance - and we were not disappointed. We came home and the boys sled down our front yard for 2 hours. They really did have a blast. It was wonderful when we finally fell into bed around 4 am. It was the best early morning sleep I can remember having in a long time. Those 3 hours refreshed us beyond words..... Anyway, everyone had a good time and it was a party that will be remembered. I always wondered what it would be like to be a zookeeper - and now I know.
