Chuck E. Cheese

Today, we went to Baton Rouge to see Chuck E. Cheese. I went one time on my 6 month birthday but Kason had never been. I am pretty sure after our experience there yesterday that Kason will have no desire to go back anytime soon. It was HOT! It was crowded! It was crazy! I will try my best to recap our experience but it may be hard because I have tried to block those 2 hours out of my memory!!! (Yes, it really was that bad!)

Angie and Kason went to find our table while I stayed at the register to order. It took a while for us to order because the man in front of us didn't know what he wanted and the cashier had to explain the entire menu to him. I don't think he ever grasped that Chuck E. Cheese is a pizza place! By the time we got to to the register I had to sit while I swiped the card because I was exhausted. I wish mom would have realized this was a sign of things to come over the next little while!


After we found Angie and Kason at our table, we sat there for a while waiting on our pizza and watching every one run around. Kason must have been very thirsty. The only problem is that there was nothing in those cups. If you look closely, there are even holes in the bottom of the cup. It is what they use to hold tokens. My mommy found a sippy cup for him after he flipped this cup up!
We played with those cups for a long time. I guess we could have saved some money if they would have just given us a couple of cups to play with at home.
Here I am being very sweet by giving Kason one of my cups. I guess you could look at this picture and think I am taking one from him but trust me...I was being nice right here.
Kason didn't want my cup so I hit him with it until he took it from me. Jeesh...a boy tries to be nice and no one wants to take him up on it!

We got up and went to see the big cheese! I was not very impressed with him. Kason, on the other hand, was quite smitten. He liked him!

After I shunned Mr. Cheese, we headed to the game section to play a while. My mom discovered I was just as content playing the games without using the tokens.

Kason came over and we played the same game. Neither of us won because we never put a token in the machine.
We decided to ride some rides after that. Once again, Kason loved them and I cried. I've become very leary of these sorts of things.





I was fine with Kason on the ride and me pushing him. That was fun. Just keep me out of there!

When I went to Chuck E. Cheese the first time over a year ago, I rode in this red car with the same silly mouse. Click here to see that visit. That was in Jackson so I guess he just drove south to Baton Rouge so he could be there to take me for a ride. I wasn't as impressed this time.



I sat in my mom's lap to eat some pizza. It was so hot in there that she had to take her jacket off. She almost put me in a sweater today and I'm so glad she didn't. I probably would have had a heat stroke. Although, a heat stroke might would have gotten us out of there sooner so maybe that wouldn't have been a bad thing!

Weekend visitors

We have had a fun weekend already and it is only Friday night!!! My friend Kason came in town for the weekend. I haven't see him since last May. You can click here to read about our last visit. He and his mom got here around 5:30 tonight. Soon after their arrival, daddy moved Kason's car seat to our car so we could go to dinner. My mom's Sunday school class went to Little Dago's for a fellowship so Angie and Kason came with us. Instead of taking two cars, daddy said he would just sit between the car seats. Ummm...it was a TIGHT squeeze!

We had fun at the restaurant. We got there about 15 minutes late and all the seats with our class were taken. So, we just sat with Angie and Kason in a booth. Seeing Kason so well behaved in his high chair made me act really good. I sat with Manna for a while but when I got to the table, I was on my BEST behavior!!



I shared my french fry with Kason. That was nice, huh? It all started with Scott Stanley's mom sharing his fries with us and so I felt compelled to share with Kason.
It was past both of our bedtimes when we got home. My mom filled the tub and put us both in.


I was so tired that I got fussy in the tub. Not Kason! He was all smiles. So, he got the most camera time. I will definitely remember that tomorrow. Apparently no one wants pictures of the whiny kid!!!

I went to bed and was very happy to finally get some rest. I was not aware that Kason did not go to bed. Had I known that, I would have stayed up. But, since I was asleep, they just left me back in my room. How fair is that??? Anyway, Kason got to play on my slide and he had a grand time!

Stay tuned for pictures of our big trip to Baton Rouge tomorrow. Rumor has it that we have plans to go see the big mouse at Chuck E. Cheese. I think we have to shop too but I can handle that if we get to see the mouse!

When all else fails, spaghetti almost always works!! The kid loves it. So, last night, I made spaghetti and he ate to his little heart's content. Yay! My baby ate tonight!!!



Dan gave him Wheat Thins with Easy Cheese (I know...GROSS!) after lunch today. He LOVED it. He kept saying "cheees, cheees, cheees." He must not know where Easy Cheese comes from. Wait, now that I think about it, I don't even know where Easy Cheese comes from. YUCK!

A box for me?

I got a present in the mail today. It was from my cousins (Tommy, Suzanne and Mary Peyton) in Madison, MS. I wasn't sure what was in the box but I was very excited to see what it was.


Daddy tried to help me open it by using a knife. I wanted to do it myself but he wouldn't let me. I didn't think that was very nice because I let him wear my beads.
He did let me hold the knife for just a second. Mommy was very nervous about that. Apparently Max was unaware of the potential danger of that because he stayed VERY close to me.


They sent me a BROWN BEAR!! The real thing!!! Every one knows just how much I love Brown Bear and they foudn the real thing and sent it to me. It is the Eric Carle bear. YAY!!!
