But if you are looking for a better solution every once in a while, I have something you need to check out. A friend of mine has a Lego store that he holds parties or events in. He also now offers Parents Night Out.
You get 3 1/2 hours of alone time while your kids get to play and wear themselves out. They also get to take home a Lego mini figure!
Check out their Facebook Page and see what other amazing things they have to offer!
