Bounce U!

Last weekend the kids and I got invited to a fun birthday party at BounceU. It was a great place for the kids to play and have fun, The staff members assigned to the party took care of everything (even writing down the gifts and givers!) and were great with the kids. I especially loved that there was only one party in each of the two rooms, so the hostess (and parents) didn't have to worry about a bunch of other kids. It was clean and new and we loved it!

Lovely extreme close-up of Liv through the red netting...

They had a fun place to shoot hoops...

...and these giant boxing gloves were hilarious. Coleman kept falling over because they were so heavy.

Olivia was hoping for a "fight" but Coleman couldn't stay upright long enough to get anything going. The adults thought that a match between the birthday boy's mom and dad was in order, but they didn't go for it.

Both kids loved the slide. They had sacks to help them go faster.

The spider web was another favorite--Coleman needed help getting up through all the layers but Olivia scrambled right to the top and came down the slide.

Coleman even talked me into doing the obstacle course with him... it was so slippery I had a hard time making it through. I was out of breath by the time I finished... and very sore. I tweaked my shoulder and somehow ended up with two skinned elbows, but at least I did it, right? The static electricity was shocking :).

**Do you play at bouncy places with your kids?

That picture of Coleman is awesome. You can tell he's trying to peak up over the helmet to smile at the camera. Oh, and Lisa... not one of your most flattering pics :)
