Flying Foam Fun!

We sure had a BLAST when we rented River City Cheer and Tumbling and invited all the cousins! The room is huge, and full of all the things kids just love to do!

One side of the room is a long looooong trampoline, where you can run and bounce at the same time.

On another side is an even larger trampoline, near a balance beam. Close to the trampoline is a HUGE pit filled with foam blocks, so you can run and jump off of (yet another) tramp, and go flying through the air and land in a soft pool of foam. Then you can "swim" to get out. You can even take the rope swing, and swing out into the middle, then drop off and go deep down.!

They did lots of flips!

You can use the balance beam to have jousting competitions, and try to knock each other off.

My silly Mom! She wanted to try everything at once, just like the kids!

Swim, Mom, swim!
The whole entire room is wall to wall foam mats, so everyone can go a bit crazy but still stay safe.

I call this one my "Nike Ad" picture. Its my 15 yr old niece, T. Doesn't she look cool?

The cousins! (looking a bit worn out after hours of play)

Watch this video, then tell me who's winning....auntie or kiddos?

What a fun idea for a party! My son is in gymnastics and he LOVES jumping into the foam blocks (we call it 'the cheese').

I seriously want to springboard into the cheese myself- glad YOU did it on behalf of Moms everywhere.

You sure know how to have fun!
And it looks like you got it from your Mom.
She looks so young! That's where you got that from too.
