Weekend Update

We had my niece Breana for Saturday night - so we ventured the craziness known as Chuck E. Cheese. I do realize we were there during a weekend dinner rush - but I was very disappointed. The facilities were filthy and half the games were not operating at all, some that did work weren't working correctly. I got the heebie-jeebies just walking into the bathroom with Madison; I might have scrubbed her skin off if she hadn't protested while washing her hands. LOL I hadn't been there since I was a kid myself, and it sure has changed - TV screens have replaced all the robotic characters that used to perform. Overall, the girls had a blast, and I guess that's all that really matters. At least they now have a salad bar, so I didn't have to sit around and watch everyone else eat pizza. :)

Happy Father's Day to all you Dad's out there. The family met up at the buffet at the Sante Fe for brunch, and that was a pleasant surprise. The wait wasn't too outrageous, and the food was fantastic. Even eating almost zero carbs, I left there full! My Dad and sister Toni came back to our house and the kids got to play some more while we all digested for awhile.

I finally got my car cleaned, I think it had been 2 months since I did it last. How is it possible for one three year old to completely destroy the backseat of one car whilst being strapped in at all times? I see again that the carpet in the backseat is indeed tan. Toni left me a car seat for Breana overnight, and I loved it so much I went and replaced both of ours today. Madison is big enough to have one of those full size booster seats, which allows me to remove, move and clean it easily. I can finally have passengers in the back seat of my car without problem.

I am on a serious mission with the exercise and diet. I drove my walk route and I'm walking about 2.10 miles. I walked it again tonight - and I think I'm going to move my walks permanently to nighttime, at least until Winter hits. I'm also going to try to increase the walking distance just a little bit on a regular basis.

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

Chuck E. Cheese has awesome pizza. And beer, thank God!

Glad you had a great weekend. I haven't been to Chuck E. Cheese since Josh was little, so I am sure it is pretty gross.
Glad you mentioned the car thing, because I was meaning to ask you if you still love your car? The Honda finally died and we need to replace it (soon) and were thinking about your car or a Honda CR-V.
I started walking again as well. I walk for about an hour each night. Now if only I could commit to eating better.

Walking at night is so much easier since it is so hot all the time. Even though it is still 90 degrees out as long as the sun is not beating down it is bearable.

Congrats on the walk-a-mania. B) It's a good thing. I just fear that when I walk out of the house, I become less productive.

You are entirely right about the changes to Chuck E's. I didn't know about the beer though, thanks Beckeye. I figure that a place like that can't keep clean. You have a hoard of children and parents that say "eat and then go play" so they leave cheese and sauce on the games. The parents aren't going to go follow the kids around to clean up as it isn't their house they are messing. B) Good place to bring wet wipes or sanitary gel.
