Adventures at Pretend City!

I'm always looking for fun places to take my kids on the weekend. Some place where everyone (even the teenager) can enjoy the day and have a good time. My 9 y/o son wanted to go Pretend City. He's been there once before and has been begging me to go back! How could I say no, right? I mean, he's the only boy amongst 3 sisters and a mom. Let the boy have his birthday where he wants! So, last Saturday, that's exactly what we did. We headed down the 5fwy exited Bake in Irvine and arrived at Pretend City. I didn't reserve their party room since there were only a few of us going. Although, I might do that for the next party. YES, I'm going back!

Anyway, once we arrived and got our tickets, the kids took off and scattered. The staff or "Pretendgineers" as they call them, were so great. Everyone was super friendly and especially helpful in the arts and crafts room. Below are a few (okay fine, SEVERAL) pictures of our day there.

They have a stage where kids can create their own music

They have a gift store so you can bring the imagination home
This is SO cute! They do a parade right before closing.

Every city needs a post office.
