The kid's casino....

I think Vegas either owns Chuck E Cheese's or has a big interest in it. Talk about indoctrination:) Lights, sounds, no windows, a show, and you play - you win! There were even some parents cheating the system to get more tickets out of games. They would put a coin in a little kid's basketball game then reach over and trigger the "points" with their hands to run up the score. GREAT example for your kids! I guess Chuck is "the Man" and is keeping people down:)

This was our first time there with the kids and we were dumb enough to go on a Friday night. The kids had first been with Mimi and Granddaddy but this was our first trip as a family. We met some friends there and had a great time. We got front row seats for the mouse show. The pizza was really good and a good deal IF you have a coupon.

At one point the CFO was playing with the Triplets up by the TVs while they were dancing when she picked up two "extra" kids as they walked to the games. Their Mom eventually came up and got them. By no means am I a perfect parent but I do try to keep the kids in view. I worry that some parents wouldn't notice their kids were gone until the battery went dead on their phone/PDA.

There is even a ride that takes your picture with "Chuck."

There are two kinds of people, those who finish what they start and so on.

We have a stack of those pictures from a recent Chuck E Cheese date! They had more fun with those cars than anything else in the joint!
