Pump It Up

After a few days of being stuck indoors due to poor weather Marcus we needed to get out and find something to do. While Grandma and Grandpa D had a plethora of toys apparently little ones tire quickly of the same thing after too long.

A little research and a quick drive to Omaha had us at Pump it Up.
I was a little leery Marcus would be too young and/or small for the play place. To my pleasant surprise the little man thoroughly enjoyed the new adventure.
You can win my child's heart by simply allowing him to play with a few colorful balls.
The great thing about Pump it Up, admission was paid for Marcus, and Marcus only. There was no fee for adults, and I was still able to help Marcus on/up/with all the features!
The slides were a mega hit with the little man. I'm pretty sure he could have gone down them all day long. Admittedly, I think I enjoy the inflatable palace just as much (if not more) than Marcus. 
After so many trips up the slides I wasn't sure who was going to be more tired at the end of the day... Marcus, or me?
A few hours of play, lots of extra energy spent on keeping balance, and it was time to pack up and head home.
Tuckered out.
I knew on the ride home it was obvious our new experience was a wise play choice...
Success, little man is exhausted!
Just what we were hoping, the little man was spent!

  3. We have a Pump It Up nearby, but we haven't taken Jackson there yet. I've been wanting to take him so hopefully we can soon. It looks like Marcus had a great time!

  5. I love bounce houses! We have a different company here, and I had to buy a pass. It is a great way to get rid of energy.

  7. I'm totally with you--I love bounce places as much or more than the kiddos and love when I "have" to help them up the big slides. It got awkward there for a while when they boys didn't need me. Thankfully Lorelai does now, so I have a good excuse :)

  15. My kids love bounce houses/ inflatables. Best way to wear a kid out is to take them to one of these types of places!
