As you may or may not know, Samuel has been obsessed with "Back to the Future" for about six months now.
About three months in, I decided to embrace it.
A few weeks ago we joined the Delorean Mid-Atlantic Club. Okay, we don't technically own a Delorean, but we figured this was a first good step. There was a club get-together in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania this weekend, so, being club members and all, we went.
It was the first time Samuel had seen a real Delorean. About 15 of them, actually. He and Ethan got to sit in one and ride in one.
And the highlight was the one that was customized to look like the time machine from "Back to the Future."
And, of course, now I kinda want one too. And at our current rate of debt repayment, we should be able to buy one free and clear in about...calculate, calculate...117 years. Woo-hoo! (Not including garage rental and insurance.)
Well, as if seeing real Deloreans wasn't enough, we spent the rest of the day at "Hersheypark in the Dark," Hershey Park's Halloween-themed promotion.
It was a little wet--we waited out a couple of downpours--but the upside was that the lines were short.
And we had the arcade all to ourselves.
All in all, a big success.
