Who wants to guess where Subvet the Softie decided we needed to go to celebrate??
Oh yes, that mouse is real! He came by and wished Sonshine a Happy Birthday...made the boy's whole night!
I have to say that Chuck E Cheese has improved greatly since my childhood and we all had a good time. They have a system at the door where all kids and parents in a family get stamped with a particular number on the way in....then everyone who leaves with a kid gets checked on the way out to make sure the kid belongs to you. I was impressed.
The food was fairly good, the games as much fun as I remember....without the ball pit that I hate from a kid, mom and nurse perspective! :-)
The games were more or less divided into younger/older sections with several slides and such that didn't require tokens and were perfect for toddlers
Probably the biggest hit for me as a big kid was when the manager walked by and threw a HUGE handful of single tickets into the air....then walked off. It was so fun to see the older kids run and scrounge for those free tickets. Small acts of generocity amaze me these days.
This mouse ISN'T real....unless you count real plastic. This was a "take a pic with ChuckE ride" that Sonshine loved...but my camera's better than theirs :-)
Strollers for 35lb non walking tubs of lard are a must and double as instant high chairs!!
Trying to keep them interested in actually EATING was a challenge to say the least...
This is one of those motion rides where you're right in front of the screen and the chair imitates the motion that you're seeing.
It was a big hit and, along with the Clifford the red dog ride, is at the top of the list for the next time we brave pizza with the mouse!
Then we came home and he got his Birthday Gift from Mom........
No more daytime pull ups! YIPPEEEEE!!
To all the comments on the last post:
Penless Writer, it does say it all doesn't it?
Enough pics for you Diane and Steph??
Jungle Mom, Sabrae and Mrs4444, how could you tell?? ;-)
Journey of Truth...oh yes it is!
Diana, all these except the close up of Sugar Dumplin were taken with the kids and pets setting, hers is indoor with Macro
Ellen and Diane, the red eye preventor only works if you're close enough to see the orange on their faces before you shoot....with a family of all blue eyes red eye is just a fact of life! Subvet's eyes are light blue so he's actually worse...the kids and I all have denim blue eyes. (glad they look like me in ONE thing anyway)
Pops, I added Three Dog Night just for you and Subvet. Grandma got run over by a reindeer is just for me. ;-)
JenLive! I'm getting there...
Pam in Colorado...it's the camera I did nothing with lighting and such. I just point and shoot, just like at the firing range.
Pam and Linda. I'm just amazed. Even the pics that I think aren't good still look great on the blog.
I am soo hooked!!
