We had great fun with our friends and are instead looking forward to going back next time!!
Thats right, we braved it! I think it has been more than a year since we were last here and swore we wouldn't come back. However, that was before we met really great friends that we love being around, no matter the surroundings!! It was a Tuesday afternoon, so no parties and not a whole lot of other tots around. Perfect! Mac was totally in overstimulation mode, didn't even want to think about pizza. Lily Kate pigged out for the first 20 minutes or so, then when I finally let her go she totally went and went and went. She figured out the slide then had to roam around to everything. Either she was mesmerized or just secretly playing baby chase with me! Either way, the kids had fun fun fun! Mac finally realized that you have to use tokens for the games (I think he would have been happy without that knowledge, but hey) and began asking me for more "cointh" (heavy, heavy lisp here). He was mostly interested in the race car. He would get a handful of tokens and just sit and ride, feeding it token after token. "Look at the wheelth Mommy!!" He even agreed to take Lily Kate for a ride! Another little girl clearly wanted a turn, even lending a hand to help drive! After her turn he jumped right back on and she was gone! Lucky for Mommy, no meltdown!! All in all it was a great day for me because it wore them out! Oh, and as we were leaving Mac asks for pizza. Luckily Ms. Leslie had two pieces left over that she offered him and he totally inhaled them on the way home!
