My oldest doesn’t have preschool this week. Why you ask? I really don’t. The only thing I can figure out is his teachers really don’t have insevice days like the school district does so they wait and just fit it in all in one week.
That’s alright though. We used it as an excuse to visit our favorite pizza and games place. We can always count on good ‘ol Chuck to open his doors at 10am and provide several hours of cheap fun for the kiddos. It helps that I also joined their coupon club so I get emails with some really great deals; like buy 40 tokens and get 60 free! When you sign up you can also put your kids’ birthdays in and you get a coupon for 20 free tokens for their birthday!
My kids and I had a great time. March Hare and Dormouse, my girls who went to Vegas with me, also showed up with their kiddos in tow. Our kids enjoy eachother immensely and it made it even more relaxing.
Plus, if you don’t frequent such places often, here’s a really cool thing. You and your kids get a number stamped on your hand in ink that only visable under a black light. Before any adults can leave with kids they check to make sure all the stamps match!
It’s just a bit of piece of mind to know that they look out for the kids also..
Well, anyway, after close to 4 hrs it was time for us to drive the 40 minutes back home. We turned in our tickets and the kids picked out prizes. Sadly I could have gone and bought them nice toys for the amount of money we spend to get ticket but it wouldn’t have kept them busy for 4 HOURS!!
And really that’s a small price to pay to be able to sit on my duff and stuff my face with greasy pizza and chug down some Cherry Coke!
