Open Jump

Dear Madelyn Kate,
Considering it has been over 100 degrees every single day for the last 25 days in a row (and probably will stay that way for the entire month of July), you and I have been hitting up just about every indoor play place in town lately. We get lots of play time in outside at the house in the mornings in our usual shaded spots, but the afternoons are simply too hot for you (and me!). Today we went to Jumpin' Jacks for an open jump session. I have been a little hesitant to take you since you are still one of the smallest at places like these, but I am so glad we went.

After about 15 minutes of "warming up" and watching Logan conquer anything and everything you decided to give it a try!
There were so many people. I asked my friends why we didn't come up with this idea first!? Talk about gold mine! Anyway, it was fun to watch you jump and laugh and interact with kids of all ages.

You slowed up the line a few times, but held your own when bigger kids knocked you around.
You loved the big slide and went down it about six or seven times!

You were bounced right out the side of one of the play areas and it completely freaked you (and me) out! From then on, you weren't much for jumping anymore and we left a little after. Other than that, you had a blast! I am not sure exactly how many kids were there, but at one point I counted 32 on just two of the inflatables! I am thinking we will wait until there is a five and under open jump to go again.

I do know that it wore you out slept for three hours once we made it home. That's twice as long as normal!

Love you baby girl,

  1. I have the same problem with the big kids at those things. Drives me nuts, especially when they go into the 5 and under area. Always seems like there is no staff around to monitor that stuff. Glad she had fun! Those bouncy things are always a hit.


Thank you for the comment love! :)
