Birthday Party at Chuck E.

Aidans party at Chuck E Cheese was so much fun! As a parent it was way easier than hosting it at home!!! This was Aidans first "real party". Up until now we have always had them at the park or at home. I think he was a little overwhelmed at times but he had a GREAT time. To tell you the truth I was a little overwhelmed! It was my first party here as well. I wasn't expecting the show they did with all of the singing and dancing.

I loved that we had our own hostess who handled EVERYTHING including cleaning up the mess. :) We brought in our own balloons and cake. The only thing I had to do was tie the balloons to the chairs and hand over the cake. Amanda was awesome!

Aidan was soooo excited to see his friends from school and our play group! It was a truly special day even if it was a month early. Aidan was a little upset that it was his party day but he was still 3. He had a difficult time wrapping his little mind around the concept. We are leaving in a couple of days to spend the summer on the east coast while Clinton is traveling, so it was either have the party a month early or not have it until September when we get back. I wanted Aidans buddies from school to be there so I opted to have it early. :)



This was when we first arrived before our guests arrived....
The 3 foot Chuck E on the table as the centerpiece. Poor rat didnt make it until the end of the party. Aidan played with it so much that he put a hole in him. :(
















For the first hour of the party the kids were able to play. They each had 20 tokens to spend. This is Jo, Ollie and his sister Emma. They are new friends of ours but I have a feeling we will be friends for a long time! ;)




















Evan and his papa.














Pretty Tessa....














Cezar and his mama.


















Karen and Gennie....



















I was walking around taking pictures and making sure everyone was ok and I turned around and saw this. For some reason it really cracked me up. Aidan and his dad having a great time.





















Aidan and his buddy Brody going for a spin.























Gabriel...


























Aidans cool race car cake. I kind of wanted to go with a Race car theme ( hence Aidan's and Clinton's costumes) since Aidan reminded me for months after last years party that he did not get to have a race car cake.


























The pictures really don't do it justice. It really was a cool cake. We got lots of compliments on it. I got it from the same bakery that we used for his West Coast 1 year old party. :) It was cute AND yummy!





























Look at Emma's blonde hair! She was ENTHRALLED with Chuck E.!































Eating their pizza and getting ready for the show.





















Getting ready to go in the ticket blaster! He found the goggles for it before the show even started. He ended up NOT wearing them in the blaster. In the video I posted yesterday when we are singing "Happy Birthday", Amanda asked him what he wished for. You can see him say "I want to go in there" and pointing to the ticket blaster. :)It really was the best part of the day for him and the entire reason he wanted to have his party at Chuck E. Cheese. Go figure an almost 4 year olds logic. lol!
























Aidan and Chuck E. Cheese...












This is Evans little sister and I get baby fever EVERY time I am around her! She always has the BIGGEST smile on her face and I LOVE her little rolls.

He will probably remember this party for a long time. He looks like he may be a little overwhelmed by all the hoopla.
