For Nathan's birthday, we took him to Chuck E. Cheese's in Independence. He had never been there before, and it had been YEARS since Steve or I had been to one. (In fact, when I was a kid they were called Showbiz Pizza Place... but Steve informed me that they are both owned by the same company and are now all Chuck E. Cheeses. Who knew?) Anyway, Nathan loved it! He loved the pizza, he loved the robotic animals singing oldies, he loved the games. He had an absolute blast! We spent about 2 hours there, and then went and got some ice cream on the way home. It was a great birthday celebration for our big 3-year-old!
