Have you ever been told “I can’t take you anywhere?” I haven’t. I have embarrassed a large number of people, however, never have I been told they didn’t like hanging out with me. Well, at least not to my face.

I was held hostage patiently waiting at a children’s birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese. That’s a nice peaceful place to like….read or somthin.

Or, if you don’t have a book handy….

or just don’t wanna read…

CLEARLY…this is what you do next.

I am simply being a good influence on my niece. She will make excellent choices in life with a little direction from me.

*No children were harmed in the following images. Some *may* have been glared at until they vacated the ride or area WE wanted to play in.

Ooops, dang it.



Missy is a terrible driver. Or, maybe the road was just bumpy.

Does this chair make my butt look big?

LOOK OUT! HAWT FireWOman at 12 o’clock!! (I’m allowed to say that about my niece. She’s 18. And her parents don’t read my blog! I hope!)

Whack A Niece!

Hey look, not a single ticket of my own!

Do these tickets go with my face?

As if you wouldn’t have been doing the EXACT same thing at Chuck-E-Cheese. Pffft.

You should know, although we were at a cute kids birthday party, I didn’t take a single picture of said kid OR even my own kids.

Not one.

Proud parenting moment right there!

Happy Friday!
