After reading our Birthday Party post, my daughter’s awesome Girl Scout leader, Jennifer, scheduled the end-of-the-year party there. Not very many people can successfully put 18 kids, 7 years old and under, in a pizza kitchen and let them make their own pizzas! So when the kids did just that at CiCi’s, I was… eagerly anticipating it.
The owner, Brian, came out and immediately captured the kids’ attention with the CiCi’s staff, by performing the CiCi’s cheer. My daughter still asks me to say the cheer with her. He took the kids to the back kitchen, and showed them every step in the process of making the pizza. It was very interesting, even for the adults, and he had the kids’ attention the whole time. Then each child got to create their own pepperoni pizza and watch it go through the oven. It was a wonderful time. Every parent who has thrown a party knows it can be a lot of work. But this was almost effortless for the parents. The kids were occupied the whole time , and they got to eat pizza. Better yet, we did not have to clean up!!!
While I was at the party, Brian generously offered to provide three CiCi’s buffet meals and drinks for Freebie Friday.
