Pierce told me weeks back, there was only one thing he wanted for his birthday, "momma, I only want to play with Jax."
So, we set a plan in action.
I set up a little playdate with Jax, and I also invited along one of his baseball buddies, Owen.
But we kept it a secret, up until the day before. So you can imagine his delight when he found out he would be with his friends, and to top it all off, it would be at Chuck E. Cheese!
Two hours to eat pizza, play their hearts out, and earn cheap prizes.
What's not to love about that?
And they waisted no time spending all their tokens.
They ran around like crazy,
With an intermittent pizza stop or two.
And Hope also reaped all the benefits from this little gathering of boys, because she was tearing it up!
And while I was certainly enjoying watching the kids have a great time, there was something more I had on my mind....
Since this was a very small shindig, I didn't want to order a whole cake, but I did want something sweet for them.
What to do? What to do?
Internet to the rescue!
And by internet, I mean, JamiesRabbits.
I follow her on twitter and read her blog, a funny and witty gal, who also happens to make cake pops (and I think cupcakes too?) I'm always noticing people raving about them, so I decided to go ahead and place an order.
A dozen Transformer cake pops later, I was dying to try one....
And try one I did not.
Try four I did.
And I was not the only one pleased.
Next time the order shall be doubled!
While I normally complain about Chuck E Cheese, yesterday was an exception. I was so enjoying watching Pierce with his buddies, that the evils of that place seemed to melt away.
Such a sweet time.
And now the countdown is on....
In less than 24 hours, he will officially be eight.
