Monkeying Around

[I'm trying to get back into the blogging groove here...] Many of my blog buddies have posted in the past about Monkey*Joe's. I've been openly envious, to the point where it was almost painful for me to read those posts. I mean, a whole room full of bouncy houses?! That is right up Spencer's alley! So when I recently heard there was a new MJ's not to far from us... I immediately went into planning mode. Last Thursday, we met up with some friends from Gym*boree. (We don't go anymore, but we've stayed in touch with a couple of families.) In short, it was awesome. Spencer had a absolute blast bouncing and sliding for over three hours.... once he decided he actually wanted to bounce and jump and slide. {Sigh.} Since then, he's been talking non-stop about going back with Daddy this time. {smile} When asked why, Spencer looked at me incredulously and said "So he can SEE it." Clearly, it was a hit. I can't wait to get back there. With Doug, of course. What's about to follow is a not-so-great series of photos. As awesome as MJ's was, the lighting and shooting conditions were far, far from awesome. But the photos were too cute not to post... even if they are a little out of focus, blurry, or underexposed. [You'll notice that most of these are taken on the BIG, to the ceiling, slide... not only did he LOVE that thing... it was the best angle/view I could get. He did go on the other equipment too though - promise!]

{EDIT: OK, OK... the photos look fine in blog size, just not full size!}
