Today was Aidan’s 10th birthday party at Pump It Up. As you can see, Pump It Up is one of those places with giant inflatables – slides, climbing walls, obstacle courses, basketball areas, and of course jumping! “Bounce castles” of all varieties. We have had this type of party before and it is always a favorite. The kids are usually moving non-stop, so it is not the best picture venue! When you do get a picture though, they always have a huge smile on their faces. It was fun from start to finish. I love it when the boys choose this type of place because the adults are actually allowed to jump too. It is so much fun! Once you step foot inside and start bouncing or join your child in an obstacle course race, you feel like a kid again. If you ever get the chance, don’t pass it up! As you can see, my brother agrees! Once we were all exhausted we headed off to the party room for pizza and ice cream cake. Aidan got the throne, of course! He did share it though.
It is nice to have this part of the party too, because everyone can chat, pass the baby around and relax a little. The goody bags were fun for all ages. Although I am not sure the girls running the party were that thrilled with the punching balloons!
Aidan had a great time celebrating with family and friends. And he was very happy with his presents! Thanks to everyone who could make it today and drove all that way! We missed those who could not come – but we will see you soon!
