Saturday we went to Miss Laney's 4th birthday party at Chuck E Cheese. I had no idea. No idea. You ever been there? On the first Saturday that the weather is decent after a long winter? There were 5 birthday parties going on while we were there and 5 more coming when we left. Screaming kids, frantic parents searching for their screaming kids, games that made weird noises, games that went back and forth and up and down, a television showing movies and a fake band playing music, all at the same time.
Picture #1 is Laney anxiously awaiting the party to begin. It's coming, it's coming, and she's so excited and pleased with herself she can hardly stand it.
Picture #2...big sister has on the crown. You know the crown that belongs to the birthday girl? There is something wrong here...what's she doing with my crown?
Picture #3 - Somebody better fix this situation in a hurry because the birthday girl is not happy and if we're not careful she'll fix it herself.
Picture #4 - Now this is how it's supposed to be! The princess has on her crown, Chuck himself is congratulating her, and attendants are waiting.
As a final note let me just say that going to the bathroom in Chuck E. Cheese's place is a whole 'nother story. Thousands of kids in a bathroom with only four stalls, and not all the toilets are full size - picture a toilet the size of a bedpan and just that close to the floor - well you just better plan to go when you get home, or on the side of the interstate in full view of everyone passing, but not there. I'm just sayin'. Chuck E. Cheese should be ashamed. At the very least he should have an adult only bathroom somewhere in that place.
