Saturday Snapshot- Parkette's Birthday Party

Last weekend we attended a birthday party at a local gymnastics center.  The kids always have a really good time when we go here.

The highlight is always the foam pit.  They can crawl around, swing on a rope and jump off a pirate ship.  This is my oldest jumping off the plant with my daughter waiting behind him.

Crawling around looks easy, but the heavier you are the more it sucks you in.  I went in while I was pregnant one time and it felt like I was going to go all the way in the foam!  It is good exercise and brings a lot of smiles!

The last activity before cake is always the parachute.

The balance beam over the foam is a good way to get the kids to do it without being afraid of falling off.

The rope swing is the part that looks like the most fun to me!
