Bella's Adventure This Weekend
We've started off our round of kid's birthday parties this past Saturday at a party for our friends Frank and Julie's daughter Gracie. Gracie is only 2 months older than Bella, so they're able to keep up with each other pretty well, but they had a special challenge for it this weekend.
They had the part for Gracie at a place called Pump It Up very close to our house in Schaumburg. It's pretty much a kid's paradise, it's filled with those giant blow-up outdoor slides and bouncing rooms and that sort of thing. I think a wise parent must have designed the idea in order to have a place where you can guarantee that your kid will be passed out cold later that night.
Bella was a little hesitant to try out most of the "rides" for lack of a better word, but after a while she got the hang of it and was loving it. We then moved to the second room with the 15 foot slide, and Bella was in heaven.
Bella spent most of that hour having us lug her up the slide and heading back down again, and she even did it all by herself once too.
Thankfully, the theme of the place worked, Bella was passed out pretty quickly that night. Of course her mommy and daddy passed out pretty quickly as well.
Take a look at a quick video we did of one of Bella's trips down the slide below...
