For Josh’s 8th birthday party, he really wanted to celebrate it at Chuck E. Cheese. Not exactly one of my favorite establishments, but the birthday boy gets to choose, you know? My only request this year was that we not invite the entire class. Why? Because it’s frustrating to invite all these people, and no one wants to RSVP whether or not they are coming. We’ve gone through enough of that in the past with parties for either kid, and I’m done with all that. So we told him to invite a smaller group of good friends. Did we still have three no shows? Yes, but the management at Chuck E. Cheese was willing to refund us for that, which was nice.
Josh had a good time playing video games and running around with his friends, so hey, mission accomplished.
