They Slide, They Bounce and She Speaks: Haiku Friday


A bouncing Monkey
little feet slipping, sliding
Toddler nirvana


In College Station there’s this fabulous place called ‘The Bounce’. It is 12,500 square feet of Bounce Houses and Inflatable Slides and Rock Walls. In other words, kid Heaven. If you happen to be in that area… Monkey and Princess and I give it a HUGE thumbs up!

Now that you’ve watched my kids at play, why don’t you pop over and take the parenting quiz on the Savvy Source Widget. It’s sponsored by Leapfrog and it is pretty interesting. Come on, you know you want to!

I don’t think that’s actually my voice. I swear in my head it sounds different. Let’s call it cheap Kodak camera distortion, K?

To join in the 5-7-5 party go visit the fabulous Jennifer or the wonderful Christina

  12. You have the cutest voice! But i know what you mean about it sounding different in your head. I hate the way mine sounds recorded and I wonder if that’s what I really sound like…..ANYWAY….

    I want to bounce! Why didn’t they have cool stuff like this when we were tots?? The best thing I had was the ball pit a Chuck-E-Cheese’s.

  13. we have something called pump it up which sounds similar. we have had some of the kids birthday parties there!! awesomeness.
    looks like it was loads of fun!

  14. @jennifer Thank you dahlin’.

    The really cool thing is it’s only $5 for kids 2 to 6 and $6 for kids 7 to 12.
    And if you’re the parent and have socks, you can play with them! It is pure joy and exhaustion. They also have a cool 50’s style snack bar with yummy reasonably priced junk food πŸ™‚
    thank you love!

  15. Yay… looks like a blast. We have one of those places and they open up in the winter for free play.
