All I saw of Jack...his side/back as he climbed in.

Tuesday, before Bart's scopes, I took Jack to BOINGZ! It's a big bounce house, full of inflatable fun slides, obstacle courses, and jumpers.
Jack is finally old enough to really enjoy himself and he had a blast jumping and running and sliding. You'd think he would take a LONG nap after a morning like that, but as usual, when Bart is home, Jack goes into "I WILL NOT SLEEP" mode. It makes sick days and weekends difficult.
Back to the play date. Taking Jackson to Boingz reminded me of past play dates in Baton Rouge, when I would take Brennan to Bouncing Tigers on Highland Rd. We loved going there so much (and it was so close to home) that Brennan got a pass to go there from his Grandpa Ronnie for his birthday a few times.
One time when Melissa visited from Texas, Burgundy, Melissa and I took all the kiddos to play. I have the cutest picture of all the kids, but of course it is on the old computer so you will just have to imagine it's adorabilty. Six kids (now there would be nine!) all piled together, happy, and sweaty, and excited to go play some more.
I love taking pictures and scrapbooking. It helps create memories for my children. I bet Brennan does not remember going to Bouncing Tigers with Maddie, Wren, Cana, Dallin, and baby Jackson, but one look at the scrap page and he has the whole story and can turn it into his own memories.
I hope my kids one day appriecate the work I put into creating the pages for them for the future. If not, that's fine, I'll just keep them all for myself and relive "the good ole days" alone!

4 Words to brighten my day:

They'll act like they're too cool to care, but they will LOVE your works of art. I just know it! Their girlfriends will especially enjoy looking through them!!

I brought Peyton to something like this for the first time about 3 weeks ago and he didn't know what to do!

They had two of those big giant plastic red and yellow cars that kids can get in and out of and he attached himself to that for the entire two hours instead of exploring all of the fun colorful bouncy things.

I was thinking, 'G-R-E-A-T! I'm so glad I just paid $6 for you to sit in a plastic car when you could be bouncing around and having a great time.'

Oh well, I guess he DID have a good time even if it was not MY idea of a good time! :0)

Maybe one day he'll get the hang of it like Jackson!

Jackson is rather fearless so this is a great activity for him! I bet he really enjoyed himself!
