The Claw (aka Jake's Birthday)

The claw is our Master. The Claw decides who will stay and who will go. What is it about this dang claw that makes kids ga-ga? I can tell them "It's a waste of money." They can watch 150 people waste their money on it, yet still they are determined that they will win. They will be the ones to overcome the claw. And for what? Some nasty matted down 25 cent stuffed animal of Barney?

Well, Saturday was Jake's (my nephew) birthday! Happy birthday, Jake! Megan decided to take the 6 boys to Red Robin for lunch. She got them all kids meals, and they let us bring in our own cake! Lots of fun! They had all the balloons you could imagine and she bought them these cool light things you can see in the bottom picture.

But was that enough? Of course not. Red Robin is also equipped with "the Claw." So in addition to all that, she and I were digging in our pockets for spare change to feed the addiction. Did any of them win? Of course not! Although they were awfully jealous of the man who won his daughter a good looking hammer from "Handy Manny."
