Isaiah's First Trip to Chuck E Cheese's

November 5, 2009 was our referral day.  On Saturday, November 5, 2011 (2 years since our referral day) we wanted to have a fun family day...and what better thing to do than experience Chuck E Cheese's for the first time!  We have been saying for awhile that we wanted to take Isaiah to Chuck E Cheese's to see if he would like it so we finally decided to test it out.  After looking online for coupons I found a spend $15 and get 85 tokens...pretty good deal I guess, but I really have no idea.  We ventured out mid afternoon (planning for a no nap day) to the Beaverton Chuck E Cheese's for about 60 minutes of family fun. These are the pictures and videos to prove our enjoyment!  

Isaiah liked looking at the "fire" on this game.  This was the first game we stopped at, but it wasn't a very good one so we mostly just let Isaiah watch the affects and we didn't waste our tokens.

This was our second game...and we quickly realized reading the directions didn't really help us understand what we were supposed to do at the game.  Since Isaiah can't read the directions he was still awesome at the game...this one especially since all he needed to do was spin a black ball controller to make some silly characters ride around a track on their bicycles.

Next, I noticed they had ride on toys.  I suggested Clifford, but Daddy picked this COOL monster truck!

Did Isaiah like it?  Nope, we had to get him off mid ride.  Thanks a lot Daddy!

He liked being able to push buttons!  This game was actually pretty good...we understood what we were supposed to do (catch fish) and we were pretty successful in doing well in the game.

Isaiah did like riding the horse on the carousel.  It was a very CALM ride much different than Daddy's monster truck ride!

Skee ball was always one of my favorite games when I was a kid. Isaiah wasn't able to throw the balls all the way to the top, but he did a great job handing us the balls, attempting to throw a few balls up the ramp, and cheer Mommy and Daddy at getting the balls up the ramp.

Isaiah LOVED the Dog Pounder game!  He played it a LOT of times!  The cool thing about this game was that he could do it all by himself.

Travis won the Jackpot and got LOTS of tickets, but he had no idea what he even did to win.  Gotta love these silly games!

Occasionally you (Isaiah) just needed to rest at Chuck E Cheese and what better place than the floor?!

Our last game was at Dog Pounder...Isaiah loved it.

We turned in our tickets.  One machine ate a few and didn't count them before we realized and switched machines...but in the end we had over 300 tickets! 

With the tickets we got Isaiah a truck and two tops!

As we were leaving I asked Travis to take a picture of Isaiah and I (and the mouse-which Isaiah called a dog when we first got there).  Isaiah was to into his truck for a good picture.  I think he was also a little tired so no smiling sweet boy, but he did have a good time.

After Chuck E Cheese's we went to have dinner at Josh and Kayla's house.  Isaiah happily reported "I have a truck" multiple times from the back seat.  Yep, 15 dollars later Isaiah has a truck. 

Nope, Isaiah still didn't feel like smiling.  I love my boy so much!  I am so thankful for his referral 2 years ago.  It is hard to remember what life without him in our family was like...we are so blessed to have him as our son!
