An Enchanted Castle

Is where Kylie and 40 of her classmates spent the morning today. From June-August, the 4 and 5 year olds of Kylie and Peyton's school have summer camp. This means they go on a different field trip on Tues., Wed. & Thurs. of each week. The trips range fron spending the morning at a local park or zoo and having a picnic lunch to going to downtown Chicago to the Children's Museum at Navy Pier or to have lunch at Rainforest Cafe in Schaumburg about 40 minutes away!

I'm taking advantage of being able to spend some extra quality time with Kylie the next few weeks and have signed up to chaperone several of her upcoming field trips. Today was my first trip and we had a great time together. Enchanted Castle is a bit like Chuckie Cheese but without the mouse and more of a medieval times theme. Each little one got tokens to play games and a ticket to go on 4 of the rides. The morning ended with cashing in their tickets for "valuable prizes", cheese pizza and lemonade for all and a bus ride back to school for much needed naps after such a fun filled morning!

An alpine racer in training?

It doesn't get any better than flying through the air with a handful of Laffy Taffy!

Playing Deal or No Deal (or "the ladies with the cases "as Kylie knows it as)

This video will give you a REAL feel of how much fun the rides were!

Kylie went on that ride? I will have to be impressed! It looks and sounds like a really great day! I wish we had a place like that around here!

I think I'm gonna get sick after watching that spinning ride. Kylie must have a stronger stomach than Uncle Mark!!
