Happy 8th Birthday Peyton!!

Happy Happy Birthday PeyPey!!

Peyton’s birthday and party were actually Saturday but we don’t have internet in the boonies so I didn’t get to post!

We started out celebrating Friday night because he wanted to eat Japanese! Totally blew the eating healthy out of the water that night! And the next night. And the next night. I was bad all weekend. oops.

His party was Saturday at the movie theater. If you live around here you know that there are only a few places to have birthday parties. We’ve had one at every place 5 times. So I thought we would do something a little different. I should have known when I went to book the party and they didn’t act like any of it was a big deal that something was up. I like to have my crap in order. They didn’t care. When you book a party they give you a 3 hour time slot. I picked 3-6. They told me that I wouldn’t know until a week before the party which movies would be playing OR the time we would see a movie. bummer. Because again, I like my crap in order. As it turns out, they didn’t know the movie times until the WEDNESDAY before the party and the ONLY rated G movie to see during our three hour window was Chipwrecked at 5:15. For real. 5:15. Party starts at 3..movie at 5 freakin 15. It only takes like 2.57 seconds to eat cake and ice cream and open presents. What in the world was I going to do with the other hour and a half?? So, I called all of Peyton’s peeps and told them not to show up until 4.

Crisis averted? I had no idea how big of a crisis it would have been had I not changed that time!

So, Saturday rolls around and I decided to be at the theater at 3 just in case there were people that didn’t rsvp and showed up. I took Reece with me. I’m walking in with her, a gigantic cookie cake, goody bags, party stuff, etc. I get to the customer service desk and there is no one. Stood there for a few minutes and couldn’t find anyone. So I went to the lady that takes your tickets and she told me where the party room was.

Y’ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I rounded the corner to the party room and it had NOT been cleaned up from the last party!!!!!!!!!! There was chocolate cake EVERYWHEREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!! On the floor, on the table, on the chairs. There was confetti everywhere. The garbage was overflowing…there was stuff everywhere. And remember, little did they know that my party time was changed until 4.

I got the people to clean it all up. All along trying to find a manager. Never could find anyone. Asked around about what to do about tickets to the movie(we were buying the kids tickets and popcorn, etc.), no one could tell me anything. No one ever checked in with me. Once we got to the movie everything was fine. Oh and they never even checked to see if we had tickets! I bought 13 kid tickets and they were never checked! In fact, I know a couple of the adults that didn’t buy tickets! I would NEVER, because I think that’s a little dishonest but whatevs.

Kudos to you if you made it through!! Now for pics! Which was bad too, because the party room was SO tiny we could barely fit all the kids in there. The adults were in the hallway! And I was so frazzled we didn’t even get a picture with Peyton! ugh.DSC_0327 DSC_0334 DSC_0344 DSC_0330 IMG_0158 IMG_0159 IMG_0160 IMG_0188 IMG_0162

That’s pure sweetness right there!

I can't believe they were so useless! Wait, actually...I can believe it. Good to know, but it sucks that you had to have a bad experience to find out that it was such a hassle!
