Bounce... Giggle... (Repeat)

Minnie likes to bounce, too! HOLD ON MINNIE!!!!

Sophia looks like popcorn being popped! Wondering what Sophia's t-shirt says? "Don't tell my parents, but they don't look a thing like me!" We got it at Cafe Press. Love it!

Sophia & Noah just love our SESAME STREET BOUNCE HOUSE/BALLPIT! Up above our attached two-story garage is unfinished, so we leave it up there, so they can play rain or shine. You can walk from the upstairs of our house right out there, so I can blog on my computer in the office, while they are 10 feet away, bouncing their hearts out! Sweet deal, eh? I only wish the blower didn't have to be going the whole time they're in it, that can be a bit annoying. It lays flat until you turn the blower on, then it inflates in about two minutes. Click on the link above if you're interested in getting one of your own. We figured Sophia is going to be little enough for a long time to make it a worthwhile purchase. We got ours at our local Wally World.

There were other bounce houses to choose from, but we liked this one because of the ball pit, with a basketball hoop too. We figured the kiddos can only stand there and bounce for so long before being bored stiff! How it usually works around here is that Noah jumps in the bigger part, and Sophia sits in the ball pit and gets bounced around uncontrollably with the balls. Then Noah will end up in there too, shooting some hoops. Then Mom & Dad will get the balls and toss them down from the top onto the kiddos... Paige gets in on the action too, usually getting in the bigger part to bounce Sophia around. It's been raining for a few days now, and they've used the ballpit quite a bit. I would give the Sesame Street Bounce House two enthusiastic thumbs up!
