Dave and Buster’s With the Grand Kids

(Edwardsville, IL) Hi  56 Lo 46 -- All day it was rain, and a lot of it. Grand kids Kyle and Kendall were off school today, so they came up with a plan to go to Dave and Buster’s, a combination restaurant and video arcade in St. Louis.
We were very surprised to discover that minors have to be accompanied by an adult because they serve alcohol. It's a large place and there were so many different games, many of them we have never seen before.

This one was Kendall's favorite. It's a small enclosed booth with a dog fighting simulation game on a surround screen. He said it was really cool!

One of the attendants told Jim that keeping all the games in operating condition is a nightmare. We saw a few that were out of service. Anyone who is mechanically inclined and needs a job, I’m sure they’d be glad to hire you. :)

We took the kids back to their home and visited a couple hours, then came back to the RV for the evening. It’s still rainy and chilly outside, but we're warm and comfy inside. Life is good.

See you tomorrow.

I am just now listening to the evening news weather forecast and they said a cold front will come through here Monday producing severe storms and possible tornadoes. Please don't send any more cool weather down this way.(grin) The Houston, TX area is suppose to be warm. . .

We spent a lot of time at the Dave & Buster's at Penn's Landing in Philadelphia. Both my kids (and us!) had great times there :)
