Wordy/Wordless Wednesday -5 yr.old Birthday party

My son turned 5 last week and I thought it would be great to celebrate it the same way we celebrated my daughter's 5th Birthday -at Chuck E. Cheese! -The top pictures are from my daughter's birthday party there -a few years ago and the bottom pics are from my son's birthday party there Saturday!

I figure it's a milestone birthday and instead of a small family party we usually have -we can invite some of his classmates seeing as how he's in school now and have a birthday bash at Chuck E. Cheese! And it's kind of cool that both of my kids had their 5th birthday parties there :) It's funny how some things are still the same and some are different. The party room used to be sectioned off more and it used to be a paper birthday crown- now they have a fancy blowup crown (you can see where Chuck E -crowned my son) and the crown even holds extra tokens for the birthday kid! They also take the birthday kid into the "ticket blaster" now -my son was not sure about that. I love how they have a designated host to help with the party and of course as always it was a great time- the kids had fun- it was a great birthday party!
Have a great Wednesday!

Very, very cool! Our boys have chosen CEC for their party this year, as well.

I'm celebrating my girls 10th birthday on my blog today! It's a birthday kinda month! :)

I had some birthday parties at CEC when I was younger too. I haven't been in years - I need to take G.

We went to that place last summer for a birthday party. There were kids running around EVERYWHERE! It was a madhouse!

It's funny how once your kids get past a certain age, you don't even think about certain things and/or places anymore. It's probably been 10-12 years since I've been to a Chuck E. Cheese's.

Sounds like the party was a big success - and you didn't even have to clean up and do the dishes afterward! :)
