Happy 8th Birthday, Miles
Today is Miles' birthday. He was so excited that he woke us up at 6am so that he could open his presents.

Miles opens his LEGO set

We got him a LEGO table, a huge LEGO set, a PC game and a domain name. Because he was born in the year 2000, he wanted bigmiles2000.com for his personal URL.

This evening, we took the kids to dinner and then to Magic Mountain for some go-karts and bumper boats. As soon as we got our tickets, though, it started pouring the rain and they shut down all of the rides. Miles was heartbroken. Fortunately, the cashier decided to give Miles 100 free tokens for the arcade since he was so upset (We also got a raincheck so we could come back another day).

He ended up having a great time playing games and then cashing in all of the tickets he earned for prizes (including a gigantic pair of sunglasses).

Overall, I think he had a pretty good birthday.
