Penny (Token) Arcades

Jude finished his pizza, riding all the rides, and playing every game ("appropriate" for his age), then decided to show me what to do with those leftover tokens. In all the years I've gone to Chuck E. Cheese for pizza and games, it never occurred to me to give back to those who give so much joy to others. So, Jude went from the carousel horses, the Bob the builder car to the big, Bumble Bee and gave them each their very own rides. I suppose he decided they needed a break... some fun time without kids hanging onto their tails, jumping on their laps or pushing all their buttons. All I can say is, "those rides were still smiling as we left the game room floor!"
Keeping 'em busy,
Bubbie and Jude
Please share you're kid stories. Always love to hear about them!

Playground Fun For Babies

Just thought I'd try Katie "our almost 9 month old lady," in a bucket swing, and she loved it! I padded it a bit for stability with her blanket, and she was good to go!  And "go" she went! She was kicking her little, red-coated legs, anxious for more. Trying to take it slow with this little honey was not easy. Next time I'll remember to bring my video camera to capture the giggles that followed the squeals!
Swinging right along,
Bubbie and Katie, too!
P.S. Please share your favorite playground stories!

Playing Indoors

Tunneling between chairs happens to be high on my list of things to do. And I would have loved to have joined Jude on his incredible journey, it's just that volume has definitely become a factor in our play. As hard as he had me try, I finally convinced him that quart size ladies can't fit through pint size chairs! 
Always something to do,
Bubbie and Jude
P.S. We'd love to hear your indoor-play ideas!
