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.
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 ☺.ReplyDelete
WHAT A GRANDPAWWWW!ReplyDelete
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.

Sounds like lots of fun for the kids, but what did Grandpa do all that time?ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
A fun place for the kids to use up some of their energy, I'm sure they appreciated Grandpa taking them.ReplyDelete
Hope Samantha feels better soon!
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.ReplyDelete
