Hey it’s Chris Miles, in for Scott and Danielle. My son Ian and I have a yearly NBA Jam challenge. It stared about 4 years ago. Ian was getting into video games and I deiced to take him to an arcade that had recently opened to give him a taste of what I used to experience as a kid.
We went to Walloping Ghost in Brookfield, IL. and the first words out of his mouth were “WOW that’s a lot of games dad. Will we have time to play them all?” Luck for him I had planned to spend a good portion of the day there so the answer was an easy yes. I let him walk around and explore the games. We play almost every two player super hero game we could play (X-Men, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Captain America and The Avengers).
Then we found NBA jam and he challenged me to a game. So I said yes and the challenge has stuck ever since. Even in his teens he still looks forward to it, and I’ll be honest it’s not something I expected. My heart just eats it up though.
Here’s a look at years past and for this years result look at the pic above all this text.
What fun family events do you look forward to each year? Let me know in the comments below.
