Callum wanted to know, when he becomes a Daddy, if he has to go up on the stage like that.
I asked him if he wanted to?
And he adamantly said, NO.
We'll see if he changes his tune after a few years. ;-)
The boys had a really fun time. Logan asked me if Twitch would have another TwitchCon next year and I told him I thought they would. He then asked if we could go again next year and I said, I bet we can.
This first pic was one of their favorites. It was a very simple game, so perfect for Logan and Callum to play. And they caught on pretty quick. Some young teens came up to watch them play and commented to me, they're playing better than we did! I guess gaming is in their genes?!
The next pic is of Logan trying out a game called World of Warships, which he really liked. He was VERY serious and in deep concentration playing that game!
The last two pics are from the arcade alley. I tried to get the boys to play Tetris with me (my favorite!) but neither of them liked it and said it was too hard to play. :(
Instead, they had a blast with Street Fighter, and then later in the evening (after we left mid day, for lunch and a break back at the hotel, since the boys had hit their breaking point and were falling apart), another oldie called Gauntlet.
Sure enough, we didn't get past the first exhibit without stopping and lounging in the provided bean bag chairs, to watch a few gamer/broadcasters play a fun and silly game. The boys were in heaven and would not stop cracking up! :)
I think we'll have a bunch of fun today. :)

And here we are. :)
My adventurer Logan, however, is usually up for something new! So we walked into a small looking place labeled Ann's Coffee Shop from the outside - but lo and behold, when you walk in, it's this (large) old timey cute diner!! Yummmm!
Logan approves and has suggested we come back with the family. I agree. :)

While I'm not at all crazy about the same damn lunch spot every day, I'm happy it's a decent meal (I know it could be a lot worse!). And, his appetite has waned these last few weeks, so I'm glad he's eating a lunch at all. :/

Happy birthday to the guys!

Callum was particularly tickled because he found the same book that Logan had checked out last week. :) He also gets a 3rd Grader "Buddy" who reads him whatever book he checks out from the library during his library time - so cute!!
When Logan heard this, he decided he also needed to be Callum's "reading buddy", so the two of them sat quietly, wonderfully behaved, while at the bank! - Logan reading to Callum a new book he just checked out earlier in the day. :)
Besides the games, there was a water slide, dunking booth and electronic bull ride! So fun. After the carnival "formally" ended, the Rec center opened up the pool for kids to stay and cool off. The boys played in the water for another hour before we had to drag them away (they were unhappy about leaving but it was super hot out and we were all tired and hungry).
We grabbed a late lunch nearby and then tried out a fancy schmancy ice cream shop, where the line was several store fronts long! Callum passed out while we were waiting but perked up once it was our turn to grab a yummy cold treat. ;-)
Hope everyone had a nice 3 day weekend!

So we headed to that first and then walked over to our normal clinic. I told the gals there to postpone his labs a little bit since I didn't get a chance to put on his numbing cream until after his pentamidine and wanted to make sure there was enough time to numb his skin. During that time I ran down to the cafeteria and grabbed him his favorite cheeseburger and chocolate chip cookie which he munched on in the waiting room for his lab work.
He had a little trouble with his port access, mostly because it's just been awhile since his last access and we end up taking a couple steps back when there's a gap like that. But otherwise the access was fine.
We had his monthly exam after that - he was in a great mood but super fidgety and ticklish (which didn't go well for the exam - jeez!). The best part is that his counts are great so we continue with his chemo at home, like always, and have an all clear until his next visit in a month! :)
