Keeping busy..

It's been rainy here in South Carolina(still feels weird to see that.. anywho). We've been keeping busy, but if I'm to be honest it's been hard and I've fallen off my normal game. I have just been lazy lately. Our TV has been on more in the last two days than I would care to admit to.. it's been on so much I know every "cotton pickin'" song on Noggin. I'll be glad when "The Fresh Beat Band" (who weren't they once called the Jump Arounds or Hop Arounds?) finally make their debut because goodness knows I'm tired of it being advertised every 30 minutes.

I digress...


Where was I?


Oh yes, keeping busy and not doing a good job of it. So anyway, today I decided we were heading out. I've been told several times of this neat little bouncy place for kids called Monkey Joe's. So I thought we would go check it out. We had a BLAST. I'm talking a B-L-A-S-T! I want to go back tomorrow.. seriously. It was just so much fun. And Nathan loved it. He got in free because the lady checking us in said he probably wouldn't do anything.. Pfffft! That boy did it ALL. All he needed me for was to get him to the top of the slides. I slid with him a couple of times, but the rest he would push me away so he go all by himself. Talk about big stuff.. he thought he was! And he was! I was amazed and so were a lot of the other parents/grandparents sitting around. They couldn't believe he was only 16 months old. We all had the best time running around and playing. We worked up a sweat! Afterwards we swung by and grabbed a bit to eat and headed home for naps. Zoey slept over 2 hours after running around at Monkey Joe's.

Tomorrow Kent's grandparents are coming in to town. We are really looking forward to seeing them. I have been cleaning and getting ready for their arrival. They should be here around 3 or 4 tomorrow afternoon.


So with them here, we shouldn't have any problems keeping busy.

You crack me up. I am right there with you with the Noggin channel. If that band comes on which I agree is every few minutes, Zoe is in a trance, watching them. It is hilarious. My favorite is Wonder Pets, what is yours?
