In an effort to burn off some of her Preschool Power, Beatrice Kate and I took a little trip to a new spot called Defy Gravity. It's a giant warehouse filled with wall-to-wall trampolines that you basically just go and jump until your heart's content.
I had heard about it from a blog of local mommies who "test out" places and spots around town. Finding out that they had a special "Kids Jump" seemed like the perfect way to cure our Storm Induced Hyperactivity.
Note: I'll apologize now for the crappy quality of these images. The fact that my iPhone isn't super great and my preschooler was on Level 10 mean it's hard to take a decent photo these days.
Honestly, I thought Bea may take one look at it, and be overwhelmed by the older children or boisterous crowd (she's an introvert through and through):
|Oh, yeah! I got this, Mama!|
|She was looking at me screaming, "This! Is! So! Much! Fun!"|
Bea even braved The Foam Pit:
A little video of her "technique" (aka: slowly bounce to the end, slide down and pitch yourself forward):
At one point, she screamed up at me, "Mama! Pull me up by my feet this time!" She probably spent close to 25 minutes just running and sliding into that pit.
Then she'd go back to the trampoline floor and jump again:
|She's got good hang time, guys.|
|Planning her next bounce move...|
