Sunday Notes.

We were up about 06:00AM, had our morning coffee, the kid's slept in until about 07:30AM. Donna had to go in to the Restaurant for a day shift so had to leave about 09:30AM, before she left she gave the Grandkids their Valentines Day presents.


                   Happy Valentines' Day.

After Donna left Grandpa was in command. so I decided, that today would be a fun day so at noon The kid's and I jumped in the truck and headed to.


Planet Fun, it's a kid place at Mid Rivers Mall in St Peter's MO. It is like Pizza street but in addition to the arcade they have a two level play cage and maze and the charge $6.00 a kid admission. Grandpa's are free I guess because they know were buying lunch and maybe supplying cash for the game machines.


                                Planet Fun inside.

That upper deck tunnel and maze circles a huge store front and is pretty impressive.


                          Pizza again for lunch.


           After 3 hours the gang is winding down.

Nicole said Grandpa, I'm all sweaty and yucky, I said good if I bring you guys home sweaty and dirty your Mom & Dad will know we had fun. Anyway we have plenty of shower water so you can all have a bath later.

They must do okay on a weekend as the place was packed and the pizza's were selling like hot cakes.

Even without climbing and running through the tunnels and mazes after 3 hours Grandpa was whipped too. Except I wasn't all sweaty.

Got the kid's home and found out Shana was going to be in O'Fallon at a girlfriends house and she called and said she would pick up Adam, so I didn't have a drive out to Warrenton and back.

That was the story of a great weekend I got to be with the kid's, I know one guy that will sleep good tonight.

Oh and before I forget Samantha said thanks for the well wishes, I am sure glad she got to rest with the kid's away, I could tell this morning when she got up for breakfast she is still in a lot of pain, I offered to have her recuperate here, and I would take Nicole to school and pick her up, so maybe that will let her get more rest than at home. Here Andy can wait on her and I can be the babysitter.

I hope everyone had as much fun as I did this weekend, be safe out there, Sam & Donna.


  1. What a GREAT place for kiddos! We love taking the grands to places like that but Russ is not generally brave enough to go it alone. Glad you had a good time but don't forget to rest a little too ☺.


    They look kinda glum going across that parking lot, but later look like WHAT A BLAST! Wheeeeeee

    You sure do know how to entertain em, that is a fact.

    Nice that the mom helped out with the pickup, saving you a few miles. I bet they had a happy day.

  3. What's with that no snow in the parking lot?? And the kids aren't even wearing coats. Did you take these pictures last summer? :)

  4. Way to go, Grandpa - what a weekend! Now, get a good night's sleep!

  5. what a great place for the kids to burn off some energy!..and what a good grandpa you are!!!

  6. Sounds like lots of fun for the kids, but what did Grandpa do all that time?

  7. Those places sure know how to reel the kids in. I know of Chucky Cheese. A great place when the weather is such they can not play outside.

  8. A fun place for the kids to use up some of their energy, I'm sure they appreciated Grandpa taking them.

    Hope Samantha feels better soon!

  9. What a great Grandpa you are. I hope Samantha is feeling better, I am sure she is so grateful to you for looking after the kids and making sure they had a great time over the weekend. I only hope that Kevin and I can do as good a job as you in the future.
