Pump it Up!

On Wednesday (July 1st) the boys and I met up with our friends Miss Andrea and her two little ones Taylor (4) and Sydney (2) at Pump it Up. Pump it up is an indoor play area comprised of four inflatable bouncers, slides, etc. The kids had SO MUCH FUN! My camera battery was dying so I didn't get the greatest pictures but a few that capture the essence of the morning.

Ben really enjoyed going side-by-side with his big brother - it was super sweet.

This slide was HUGE! They literally flew down - giggling the whole way.

My boys were begging to go doubles with Andrea and of course her kids wanted to go with her so she was nice enough (or silly enough) to agree to go with all four kids at the same time. It seemed like a good idea at the time. I was video taping and kneeling in an apparently dangerous spot as you will see. Benjamin and Taylor both were in tears at the bottom (short lived). It was actually quite funny and thankfully no one really got hurt. Check out this madness.

When we were all done "pumping it up" we ate our lunch on the grassy area in front of the building. It was such a nice morning and the kids played so nice together. There was no fighting and lots of sharing - really good stuff. They ended the morning marching in circles while pretending to be elephants, singing ring around the rosy about 12 times and of course LOTS of hugs and kisses. I think Andrea got some cute video of that.

We are both so blessed to have such fun children that are so close in age. It was really great to watch the four of them play together.
