Before I forget....

I just have to blog about this before I forget.....

Bethany, Mallory, and I drove about 30 minutes this evening to meet Brad in a town called Buckhannon which is in between where we live and where he works. We met for dinner at BK. They have a massive indoor play area, and so after eating dinner the girls went in to play. B was instructed to stay close to M and help her through the tubes and such, plus I didn't want M to get left behind and freak out. Well, after about 20 minutes of playtime I told B it was time to leave, so she went to find M. We waited and waited and waited, but no M. I finally saw B track her down in an area that was visible and noticed that M was shaking her head and trying to make a getaway, so Brad and I looked at each other and pointed to each other and then to the playplace. He thought I was going to go up after her.....hahahahaha....that is too funny. If only I had a video camera with me or at least knew how to work the camera on my new phone!!! My 6 foot tall, 185 lb Brad had to climb up through each level of this thing, very slowly and cautiously, to try to find our 2 1/2 yr old rebel. It was hilarious....for me anyway. After at least 5 minutes, maybe ten, they appeared at the end of the slide. Whew! I was trying not to laugh out loud as I reprimanded Mallory about coming out when we say it's time to leave, and that Daddy could have been thrown out of BK for going into the "Kids Only" area....well, that was probably a stretch. I imagine many parents have had to make that climb. Needless to say, Brad is going to have some bruises on his legs after that little adventure, but I'm really just glad that he was with me this time. :)

We have had that same experience....I HATE climbing inside of those things! Poor Brad! Although, maybe he actually had fun, he just didn't let on....hehee

You have got to be kidding!! I would have paid to see that!I am laughing about it right now. I used to hate taking the kids to Chucky Cheese. They would do the same thing and Melanie even peed in the tubes one time. What a nightmare!I had to climb through those things once. I did not have to do it again because somebody got their little behind tore up.
Now I can send the bigger girls after Kimberly as pay back! Ha Ha HA

That is hilarious!! I also would have loved to have seen that. Cory has gone up in those tunnels as well...but not to find a child....to play with the children. Some boys just never grow up! :)
