God Bless America

Or who ever the CEO of Monkey Joe’s is. Because, seriously, it is a game changer for us.

For those not in the know, Monkey Joe’s is an indoor inflatable play ground. There are big slides, jumping castle type things, climbing walls, a reasonably priced snack bar and a few special jump areas just for the under three crowd. This, by the way, is not in any way a sponsored post but, hey!, if any one in any way associated with Monkey Joe’s reads this– I love you, I’ll totally shill for you, please send me coupons.

The kiddo and I went twice this weekend and it was the best $9 I’ve spent in a long time. He had fun, he got exercise, he got a chance to run, he stopped using our couch as a high jump pit for at least an hour. Success!

Winter can be so freaking long here and there is just a limit to the amount of time I want to spend stuffing a kid into snow pants and gloves and a hat and boots just to play (especially given that he usually lasts 5 minutes outside before ripping off his gloves and trying to give his damn fool self frostbite) so I am always looking for inside ways to let him blow off steam.

Plus, look at how much fun he had:

    We have something similar, Bouncin Bears. I found that they sell a 10 jump pass; which is less than paying each time we go. It is the best place for cold nasty days.
