My oldest turned 9 years old on the 4th of January. Everyone says that it goes by quickly, but you never really understand what that means until it happens to you. I swear it was just yesterday that he was born and I became a mom. What makes my head spin the most is that in another 9 years he’ll be a legal adult! Wowzers! And to celebrate his 9th birthday – we’re offering you guys a Chuck E Cheese giveaway! This is a sponsored Chuck E Cheese giveaway, all opinions are my own.
His Birthday Choice
I have let my kids choose what they want to do on the day of their birthday for the last few years and this year my oldest, my BIG 9-year-old chose to go to Chuck E Cheese with his best friend. I was more than happy to oblige since I had not been to a Chuck E Cheese since I was a teenager for my little cousin’s (who is now like 20) first birthday. We picked up his best friend and headed to Chuck E Cheese for a birthday lunch of super fun proportions.
I braved taking 5 kids to Chuck E Cheese by myself and I braced myself for a day full of stress. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how calm and fun it was instead! As a little kid I remember Chuck E Cheese being loud and busy but when we visited on a Monday afternoon (perhaps it’s busier on the weekends) it was busy but not chaotic and it certainly wasn’t loud. We ordered two cheese pizzas and I got a salad and the kids got plenty of tokens to go nuts on.
Something For Everyone in the Family
A lot of places to claim to have “something for everyone’ but in my opinion, Chuck E Cheese really does. The pizza was super tasty, the salad was fresh and the new pretzel dippers looked divine (something for the foodie), there was a toddler play area with toys to ride on and arcade games they could play, an older kids arcade game area with my fav game: skee ball, plenty of seating areas near each play areas and entertainment. We had a seriously great time!
Safe and Secure
When we arrived, each person in our party (party of 6!) received a hand stamp and when we left each person was checked to make sure the hand stamps matched. I appreciated that there was only one exit and entrance and it was closed off. No chance for kids to run away!
Head over to Chuck E Cheese for more information.
