The Parley Party
The kid loves Chuck E. Cheese, so we ended up there again this year, with his 4 "closest in age" cousins and Bo. Bo is Parley's best friend who lives down the street. Bo was born the day before Parley and they must have been buddies in the hospital nursery. Here are a few shots. I imagine, if you've ever been to Chuck E. Cheese, you can fill in the smells and sounds as you look through the pictures.
Driving, his dream come true. And he didn't even hit a tree this time. Oh, didn't I tell you that story?
Parley in that Merry-Go-Round thing. Remind me to tell you about the time I got stuck in one of those very things when I was 17 and at my little brother's birthday party. And how it would only carry me up half way because I was too heavy. And how my best friend kept putting in tokens just to make me mad. And how a Chuck E. Cheese employee told me I was too big and should get out (an obvious point by then). And how my Dad had to pull a miracle maneuver to get me out. Remind me to tell you...
and in case you didn't get to see Jed's cake close enough:
Wow and wow. And speaking of Mario, (what?) Parley got the old school Mario Bros. game and I still totally rule at it. Extra guys on level 3!
Well, that about does it.
And now Parley is sick. Classic strep symptoms. I guess you can't have a birthday everyday!
