For Emily's 10th Birthday Adventure this year, Emily decided she'd like to go to Jay Gee's. (After Memere vetoed the "Emoji Movie" and a High Ropes Course!)
Jay Gee's is a great place to spend the day!
We started with a round of Mini-Golf. There were many "hazards" including this alligator that Emily was able to to tame and ride.
It was a very easy-going game with all of us being equally inept, and no score was kept.
Emily also managed to ride the back of the incredibly weird looking gorilla!
After the mini-golf we tried out the go-carts. Pepere challenged us to a race.
Emily and I came in first place!!
Before we went inside to the arcade, we all took a turn in the batting cages. Somehow I got no photo of that.
The Spinning Bumper Cars were next. Lots of fun and it was quite okay to bang into other drivers!
Ski-ball is always a favorite.
But Emily hit the jackpot on the Wheel!
Yup, 750 tickets!
Unbelievably, they all spewed out of the machine. I stood there for literally 5 minutes waiting for them all to come out!
Emily challenged me to a game of air hockey. She barely beat me 7-6.
Then it was Pepere's turn. Emily went all-out to make the plays!
And beat him 7-2!
She ended with 1019 tickets! She got an emoji pillow and some disappearing ink.
We had one more coupon left for a go-cart ride, so Emily took a turn with Pepere. He's a much slower driver than Memere and not very safe!
Emily really enjoyed Jay Gees!
We finished off with some ice cream. I had a hard time holding the camera, my ice cream AND taking the photo.....so my ice cream has a prominent place in this photo.
Emily had a strawberry Slushie....
And Pepere chose Crazy Vanilla...."You gotta be crazy to have Crazy Vanilla!"
