Her expression… love it. It reminds me of how thrilled Pat and I were to get tickets when we were kids running around the Chuck E. Cheeses, D&Bs, Magic Mountains, and other random arcades. Even though we were never good enough of dedicated enough or strategic enough to get anything good. My favorite things I’ve ever redeemed were baseball cards of some of my favorite players.
Of course, those inflatable bats and giant tennis balls were really cool too. But they didn’t have the same kid magic.
