The Ball Pit Experiment

Chuck E Cheese’s was one of my favorite places to go when I was a kid.  I spent the majority of my time jumping in the ball pit.

Most of you are probably cringing right now.  Your probably thinking about the time when a hypodermic needle was found in the ball pit and the plethera of germs that are probably growing in there.

What do you think you could find in the ball pit if you really looked.  Probably a lot of tokens, socks, and pizza.  😀

Uncle Brandon and his girlfriend Nikki got Ace his very own ball pit for Xmas…

Ace In The Ball Pit

Ace In The Ball Pit

I’m going to do a little experiment.  I’m not going to clean out the ball pit for a few months.  After a few months have passed I am going to remove all the balls and see just what is in there.  I’m betting that I will not find any hypodermic needles, but I just might find some dried up grapes, crunched up crackers, and a moldy sippy cup.  Who knows…

I’ll keep you posted on my ball pit experiment.

So do you have any Chuck E Cheese horror stories?  Tell us about them in the comments.  😀

And If You Haven’t Noticed…

I have finally updated the Ace’s Pictures page.  The most recent pictures were from about a year ago…..but not any more.   It’s a chronological timeline of Ace in action from before birth, until now.  😀

    I can tell you that you will find at least 10 socks in that thing and probably some underwear.

    I remember going to Chuck E Cheese’s around 5 year olds and thinking “Wow it smells like pee, and these singing robots are stupid”. . . I took my nephew a couple years ago and it was nice to see nothing changed!

    Own personal pit is awesome though! I have to remember that one.

    That’s cool.

    Make sure he doesn’t eat what accumulates at the bottom.

    We had a ball pit too…a $4 plastic pool from Walmart and a $10 bag of balls. It worked.

      I’m sure he has eaten much worse. I’ve seen him comping away, and I have not giving him anything to eat in hours. By the time I get his mouth proed open to see what is in there he already swallowed it. Good idea using the pool and balls!

    ALL of my Chuck E. Cheeses stories end with “diarrhea”, so I’ll spare you the details. I WANT AN ADULT SIZED BALL PIT! I LOVE THOSE THINGS!
