a good friend of mine’s son turned 2 yesterday and to celebrate she decided we should all load up and take a trip to chuck e cheese in the nearby city (by nearby i mean an hour away). so we went and while i haven’t been to chuck e cheese since i was a small child, i figured it was going to be hell but also fun and hey free pizza… vincent doesn’t get to be around kids much, which sucks, but most of my friends had kids early so they are all way older than vincent. so when there is an opportunity for him to be around kids i jump on it, even if it will leave me exhausted and frazzled.
it was a mad house, and even our hostess was kind of shocked by the sheer chaos tightly packed into this building. we ate pizza and cake, we took pictures, and we got the hell out of there.
vincent did enjoy himself, but he was maybe a bit too young for the place. he obviously can’t play an arcade game yet so all he really got to do was ride some kiddie rides and sit in my lap while i played a couple of games. we didn’t win many tickets cause i was too busy with him to play the games that spit out tickets, but i was able to get him a little inflatable sword, and then i ended up buying him a chuck e cheese toy.
we probably won’t do that again for a very long time!
