Show & Tell: Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park

Sometimes I look at my kids and wonder if I ever acted the same way or said the most ridiculous things. Don’t tell my mother that I said that – I would get a phone call with a giggle on the other end. Last week Kennedy needed to get blood work done. As an 8 year-old, this was very nerve-racking for her as she has never had to do something like that before. But, I was very proud of her because she was brave and handled it as best she could. Ok, and I bribed her with $20. Afterward, we went home and she decided that getting blood work done entitled her to relax and be exempt from doing anything but be lazy for the rest of the day.

She goes back and forth until after the fourth time she is no longer limping. “See, look! I’m feeling much better! Could you not call the doctor? I think I’ll be just fine.” Hmph. After that amazing attempt to have a lazy day and keep her nose in her tablet, we all headed off to Sky Zone. Once we arrived, it was difficult to find parking because they were so busy, which is a good sign that it’s a popular place. We walked in and were greeted with the sounds of laughter and people yelling from afar in excitement. You just can’t help but feed off the energy once you step inside that door!
