Chuck E. Cheese's - Where a Kid Can Be a Kid!

Last weekend, after my biopsy on Friday, we spent several days cooped up in the house.  By Sunday morning, I was feeling a little better, and we were all suffering from a case of cabin fever.  So, we headed out for a little family outing.
It was a blustery, rainy, cold day - so all outdoor activities were out.  Saunders wanted us to go to a bouncy house downtown, but they didn't open until after lunch, so that was a no-go as well.  I had won a $50 gift card for Bugaboo Creek Steak House, so we decided to head down to Kennesaw and use it.  Since Bugaboo is right next to Chuck E. Cheese's , I suggested we let Katie Anne give Chuck E. Cheese's a whirl!  We have a few friends who've taken kids that are her same age there before, and they say their kids love it, so we thought we'd give it a try.
When we got there, it wasn't too crowded, so we bought a big cup of tokens and hit the toddler zone.  Katie Anne loved it!  She had a great time riding rides, playing games, and earning tickets.  It was definitely a fun family outing for relatively little cash - we bought $10 worth of tokens and still have lots left for another day of play.  It got a little more crowded after about 12:15, so we headed out to Bugaboo for a yummy lunch - Katie Anne loved the talking animals. 
Here are some pictures of the Chuck E. Cheese's fun!

Katie Anne's favorite thing to do - by far - was the horse race

Poor Saunders had bag duty because I couldn't carry any weight after the biopsy. He even packed it himself! He now has a lot more sympathy for women, he says. :) The bad part was that Katie Anne had no accidents, never needed a drink, etc so we never needed the contents of the bag - it was all in vain! Well, it was the thought that counted.

I'm glad you're trip to Chuck E Cheese was enjoyable! We tried about a year ago, but I think we were there on a busy Saturday - it was too much! Glad you had a fun family day out and are feeling a bit better!
