Cheap Play Day!

Yesterday Charmaine and I took our kids to Chuck E. Cheese's for a super fun play day! It was really cheap too! We went because prego Charmaine has been craving salads her whole pregnancy. We thought the all you can eat salad bar sounded good, plus the kids could get a lot of energy out. It was absolutely perfect. It was the middle of the day on a Wednesday, so there we barely any kids there which made it really easy to keep track of them! We got them Pizza and let them ride a few rides, and they were happy as could be. I was also happy that their games and rides were only one token-- It seems that now-a-days when you go to an arcade it takes 3-4 tokens just to go on a dumb 30 second back and forth shaking car, or to shoot some stupid gun. They had some really cool games and rides actually. They had this huge car that whipped the kids all around- I think they spent most their tokens on that. Lacy had fun the whole time-- until Chuck E. Cheese actually came out to play with the kids. He is actually pretty scary if you think about it.

It was also nice because they had a huge FREE play-zone. Like the kind they have at McDonalds with tubes and they were super happy playing on that as well. I remember going to places like that as a kid, but now it seems so smart. I also love their security there. They check you and your kid and stamp matching numbers so when any kid leaves, they have to match the adult they are with. Its so nice, you dont have to worry about someone stealing your kids.

Okay, I know I'm lame, but we had a lot of fun!

It is fun to go to Chuck E Cheese. And thank goodness for the free play area because they can really suck the life out of you with the tokens! Looks like you had fun swimming too. Why am I never around for all the fun?? (:

How fun for you two! Lacy looks so big and you look younger( in a good way). Chuck E Cheese does wear them out well!

Wish I could have come :(.

I lovw that place too. One time we brought Koley and she was scared of Chucky. It just might be the age thing. Also trying going on a week night for a family night. I found not so busy then too.

That place is so fun for kids! I think I know the one you went to, we had Andin's party there when I was visiting...over by Superstition mall? I like it because it's newer and actually pretty clean! The old ones are pretty nasty! Glad you guys had fun!
