She seemed to have forgotten about it this year, but when I was invited for a family fun outing to Chuck E. Cheese's I thought it would be a fun surprise. We invited one of her good friends and I marked the date on my calendar. I knew I couldn't tell her in advance (similar to Disney World!) because she would ask constantly if we were going. As the date approached something very fortunate for her happened: Nia got invited to her first birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese's just a few days before our surprise visit. She was SO excited and I was curious to get a preview for our visit since it had been years since we visited.
It was a busy Saturday and while Grayson was asleep at the beginning he popped up and began running around screaming with excitement - he's definitely a fan of Chuck E. Cheese's and had no fear of the mouse!

Our gift card included their new Thin and Crispy Pizza and drinks so Nia and her little buddy picked plain cheese and I may have had more than my fair share - it really is good pizza! I got a tour of the kitchen and found out why: Chuck E. Cheese's has a new recipe that even beat out Pizza Hut's in a recent nationwide taste test. And the most surprising part is that it's made fresh right on site!
Take a look:

If you'd like to give it a try with your kids #Chucktober is definitely the month to go and dress your child in their Halloween costume too so you can get 50 free tokens! I highly recommend going on a weekday if you can.
