Bouncing party

Nico's classmate held her birthday party at an indoor bounce house called Pump It Up! The place is huge - the first room is bright and airy with a very tall slide, basketball hoops, mini slides one after the other. The big slide was the big hit.

Then we moved on to a smaller, very dark disco like room with colour changing lights and loud music. Narrow slides, big "king of the mountain" type house that Henry loved. He claimed the center ball and yelled at everyone to knock him off.

Nico was tired after almost 2hours of running/bouncing/sliding.

Birthday boy

Henry wrote out a birthday sign for me, he did a fab job.

Hamming it up for the camera.
Blowing out the candles on his birthday brownies.

He picked brownies for his birthday cake.
Jen & the boys looking for alligators in the woods.

The boy impatiently waiting to open his gifts.

H. on Friday

Saying cheese with Mrs. W.

Standing up in front of a large group, he did a great job speaking about the cub scout belt loops he has earned over the year.

Nico can ride a bike! He was determined today to ride without trainers after 90mins he was wheeling down the street.

The boys lining up for the first event of the day - archery, bb gun & wrist rockets (slingshots). We were lucky to get those events out of the way early in the day. The 3 activities are council run and can only be earned during council events. Also by the time the third group rotates out the activites start to run 90 mins behind.
