Finishing Audrey's 6th birthday

Well, after Audrey's phone call from Mickey. She got 2 more phone calls from grandparents. We went to visit her Great Grandma and Grandpa Jensen. We spent a little bit of time there and Audrey got a present from them. Gave them hugs and then went home to get ready for Dance class. After dance class was done and we handed out treats to all of the girls and their brothers, we got back into the car and headed to the party. Audrey knew there was going to be a party but thought for sure that it was going to be at our house. And so when I started driving away from our house instead of towards it, she started getting confused. I told her not to worry, but I just felt like taking a drive before the party. 

I hoped that she wouldn't put all the pieces together. As she had gotten several clues. She had seen the Chuck E Cheese web page open in my browser. I hadn't been cleaning the house like crazy. And we were packing all of the party supplies into the cars. She saw the balloons in daddy's car. But we told her that daddy was in charge of decorating for the party. I told her I was just checking the prices of Chuck E Cheese, and she put it to being able to go there on pizza night for dinner. 

I drove past the Aquarium, which is where we went last year for her birthday. But the girls didn't notice... and I drove towards Chuck E Cheese. We were a little late as dance gets out right about 6. But it was pretty smooth driving there, I didn't hit much traffic. As I pulled into the parking lot the girls thought we were going to go shopping a little.

I pulled into the parking stall, and Audrey turns to me and says,"Mom, I think you are lost...". Me,"Oh, really?". Audrey,"Are we going to have dinner at Chuck E Cheese's!?!". "Yes". "But, what about the party??" (starting to get a little down) "Honey, the party is here." "It is!!!! Yay!!!"

I just wish I had someone with a camera when she went through this conversation. It was pretty awesome. And apparently I can keep a pretty good secret... But probably not for too much longer, or I will just have to get sneakier. :)

We had lots of fun with family, friends, pizza and games! And I didn't have to stress to much about all of it. So it ended up fairly enjoyable

And now I shall post pics...
