Today we all went down to one of the outlet malls in southern Orlando looking for some shoes for Emily and to do some Christmas shopping. We made the mistake of saying yes to Abby’s request to eat at Chuck E Cheese, so after every shop that we went into we would get, “Now we go to Chuck E Cheese?” We also had Abby driving Emily around in the umbrella stroller, which was pretty humorous. Abby would spin Emily around in circles which would make Emily giggle. Yes, after the outlet mall, we went to Chuck E Cheese.
Afterwards, Jennifer went to a Girl Scout meeting. She’s been helping out this troop which is meeting up at our church. I was left with the kids and I figured Oreo cookies would be a good snack for the girls. That was until Emily came out of the play room with her hands and face covered in black and Abby screaming, “Emily’s a mess!” in that “I’m telling Dad on you” voice.
Tonight I finished up Sly 2: Band of Thieves game. It was a pretty good platformer, but not as good as the original, Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus. The plot was good, but sometimes the missions started to feel the same and I never really felt challenged. I would only recommend the game if you like platformer games and you’ve played the original game. Next, I will be starting a new series of games, another platformer by the name of Ratchet & Clank. The latest game, Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal has been getting good reviews, so I figured I would start with the original game since it was in the bargain bin for $20.
