Day number two of rain... what to do, what to do? The answer was unanimous when I asked my boys yesterday during lunch "what fun thing should we do tomorrow since it's supposed to rain again?" Without thought they both yelled "Chuck E Cheese!"
I pulled out my coupon file (yes, I have a file for them), and found a coupon for the most annoying-to-adults-but-fun-for-kids place on earth. Lo and behold at Chuck E Cheese: buy a certain amount of tokens and get an equal amount free.
So, this morning, soon after breakfast, we headed out. First stop was Starbucks for the seasonal Peppermint Mocha, my all-time favorite. (And, big thanks to Juli for the gift card!) Second stop: Chuck E Cheese.
Since we were there early and since Thursday mornings aren't key birthday party times, we had the place almost to ourselves. There were a couple other moms with young boys there - no doubt doing the same I was to escape the confines of home and find a way to let little boys burn some energy. I really don't think I saw a little girl there all morning, just several boys. Probably because little girls sit nicely and play quietly with dolls and books, huh? (*Wink*Wink*)
And, for the record, my four-year old kicked my tail playing air hockey. How'd he get so good? But, I still hold the self-proclaimed title of Best Ski Ball Player. I dare you take me on. I even double dog dare you.
