Fun N’ Play Potting Bench

Recently I participated in a YouTube collaboration ‘Look For Less-Summer 2016’. The collaboration was hosted by Jaime, from the YouTube channel Bored or Bananas and Jaime asked us to use an inspiration piece and create that look for less.

Well. we had some wood laying around that was found roadside that was more than likely scraps form someone’s project. I found an inspiration piece on PARENTS.COM and this is what we came up with.

Marriage and The Family: Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park

We went on another summer family adventure…

image

We crossed the state line to go to…

image

Yeah… that’s how we… roll jump

image

We look confident about our jumping skills.

image

I learned quick that 3 kids take a toll on an Ole’ G’s bladder.   30 minutes was enough jumping for me.

My husband and I paid for 30 minutes because we weren’t sure if we could hang like the youngsters.

image

And we paid an hour for the kids.

image

We went to the Sky Zone that was closest to us, which was the Schererville Indiana location.   When we arrived I was so surprised at how clean and well maintained the place was.  I guess I have misconceptions of places that you remove your shoes.  I was expecting the not so sweet smelling fragrance of feet.  Sweaty feet.  But no sweaty feet smell. 

I was also impressed with how well monitored the jumping stations were.  The stations had a minimum of one worker monitoring and making sure everyone had their turn and everyone played safe.   If a jumping station was larger there may have been two to three monitoring.  

It was a very pleasant experience.  The kids loved it and we did too.  We’re going to make sure we go back before my daughter leaves for school.   Most likely we’ll pay for the maximum time for the kids and maybe 30 minutes -1 hour for us.

Oh, it’s a great place to let the kids blow off some energy.   I also think it’s a great place to take them during the colder months because its an indoor park. 

Has your family attended a trampoline park in your area yet? If so, how was your experience?

Marriage and The Family: Brookfield Zoo 2014

I think the last visit we took to the zoo, I was pregnant with my youngest.  Brookfield Zoo was on our schedule for this week’s summertime family outing.

image

Last week I picked up passes from our local library.  The passes covered two people, my husband and I.  So, we only had to pay for my son and daughter.  The forecast said rain all day, but it only rained the night before and on our way there.  The weather was beautiful.  Not too hot and not too cold. 

image

This little fella right here put on a branch swinging show.

You don’t go to the Zoo often, right?  However, Jala was attracted to this.

image

Really?  We can go here anytime.  We had a good time with a lot of walking.  I fell asleep on the way home! And took a nap when we made it home.  I was wore out! 

Any summertime fun family outings on your family’s agenda this week?
