Boing! Boing!

Today we went to The Bouncy Place in Kent. One of Doug's co-workers told him about it recently, and we've been wanting to check it out. It's basically a warehouse of bouncy toys. Those big inflatable things. (We call them "The Bouncy Tottington Hall," after watching Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.) It was a hoot. Kate was a bit hesitant at first (she tends to be on the cautious side), but she had a blast. She especially liked the animals in the Baby Dino Lake. We also took her down the big slides (we had to hand her up the ladders to each other, since she couldn't get up them herself). She was a bit frightened by the biggest slide, which is very steep and fast, but then later she wanted to go down it again. She sat on Doug's lap and put her hands over her eyes. Wheee!

We were there for a one-hour drop in session. (Most of their business is party rentals, but they have drop in play times too.) It's $5.00 per child and parents are free. We got some good exercise, climbing around. I was feeling pretty hot and winded by the end.

We found a cool Vietnamese place where we had lunch, then came home and Kate and I crashed for a while. Now she's got Doug chasing her around the house, pretending to be an alligator.
