My son and I just got back from a three day event in Southern California called the Arcade Expo 3.0.  What a blast we had playing tons of arcade and pinball games all on free play.  Really great event, everyone that worked it was very friendly and the vibe was good all around.  This was one of those great bonding moments, really felt like a win regarding father son time - we'll do it again for sure next year. 

Below are some of the pics I took, a lot to take in... and watch my kid at the same time so not a lot of picture time.
