As you may recall, last yer he had a Ninjago birthday party at Chuck E Cheese, despite having never seen or expressed any interest in Ninjago. Well, looks like that's become the new theme, because I've never heard him mention Guardians of the Galaxy before this declaration.
But it's his birthday, so he gets to pick. So Guardians of the Galaxy at Chuck E Cheese it was.
He also requested a homemade cake - strawberry cake with chocolate ice cream. I had a hard time figuring out how I was going to Guardians that thing up, and finally came up with a pretty good solution.
The kids spent the time playing arcade games and dancing with the mouse himself.
During the birthday show, he got called up to lead everyone in singing to him.
And then that cake got candled, cut, and eaten.
As much as I hate these Chuck E Cheese birthdays, Thatkid really loves them. And I love seeing him so happy. Even still, let's cross our fingers that next year he decides he's over it, or interested in something cooler.
