Boingo Bounce!

Right before we left for Christmas, my good buddy Sydney called me up to see if we wanted to do an impromptu trip to this bouncy place around here. We just happened to be up and around so we decided to try it out. They have all kinds of bouncy things (nothing but the technical terms is good enough for this blog (c:) that they can jump on and then they have a little area with a play house and some toys. At first, my kids wanted nothing to do with anything bouncy. Lilly has never liked bouncy houses but Reid loves them so I was a little surprised that he wouldn't get in any of them.
They were perfectly content just playing in the house...note that Lilly brought her purse. She always has to have a baby and a purse when we leave the house. I cleaned no less than 8 babies out of the car the other day. Anyway, then something surprising happened...
Lilly got on one of the bouncy things!! I was so proud of her and she had a blast! She was just jumpy jumping all over the place! I think it is because there isn't a top on this one...maybe it wasn't as scary for her.?.
Maybe the fact that Stella (or "Lella" to Lilly) was there to encourage her? I don't know but I was so happy that she tried it and loved it!
Then, after seeing big sister Lilly do it, Reid decided he would give it a shot too!
Isn't he handsome?? I am such a sucker for that little boy to begin with but then you put in a sweater vest and I just can't contain my excitement at his cuteness!!!!
Stella coming through the tunnel!
Petting the horse. All the kids were sitting on the dog at one point or another but I was too slow to get a picture!
Lilly had the most fun at the water fountain though! She was soaked!! She would turn it on and it would hit her on the side of her face and she would just laugh and laugh. Thanks for the invite Stella and Syd! We had a blast!

That seems like such a cool place. Jayden would love to go to something like that. I wish we had something like that.

Umm first of all I miss you guys like crazy!! Monday play date?? Soon?? like this week!!

I am so proud of Lilly for jumping in the bouncy house!! Big girl.

And I really don't like the recap 2010 of Lilly and Reid. I FOR REAL got teary eyed. I can't believe how fast they are growing up. Reid looks like such a big boy. NEVER do this to me again!! lol
