Our family has been going to Chuck E. Cheese for years for a “family fun day.” I’m not sure when they started the “photo” machine, where Chuck E. Cheese “draws” you picture, but the earliest one I found today was dated in 2004. I know I am missing a couple of pictures because I didn’t find the one with me holding a brand new baby Abby in 2003. Evidently I put some of the pictures somewhere safe, but forgot where that was. (oh, how I hate getting older!) The picture in the middle with the red background is the one I used for our 30th anniversary announcement in area newspapers. David had many people at work comment on the wonderful picture. He just grinned. Only he and I knew it was a Chuck E. Cheese photo that cost us a grand total of one token~ That’s a quarter, folks. We love our inside joke.
