Michelle was searching for things to do with the kiddos and came across this, so we went! It was awesome! Ari was given a "bracelet" with a long number on it and I was given the matching ticket, when you leave they check to make sure you have the right ticket so no wacko can just prance out with your kid. Pretty smart! They had a dance floor upstairs with bubble machines, hula hoops and shaker toys. The DJ played mostly 80's disco dance music and the kids really got into it. Oh, we also spray painted hair, Ari's was blue and Ella's was pink and got little tatoos. Ari had an astronaut! I wanted to put his hair in a little mohawk but we ran out of time, then he truly would have been my lil' punk rock baby!
Downstairs they had food for parents and kids and a "chill out zone" full of books and toys. It was much quieter downstairs, we spent some time down there when the music started to get to Ari. He's not that great with loud noise anyway and with his little head injury I'm sure he was just a tad more sensitive than normal. After a while he either wanted to be held or just wanted to get out of there so we left early. Michelle and Ella were still having fun so they stayed. On the way out, while they check our bracelet, we were given a goodie bag and a "boon" as Ari says (balloon in case you don't speak toddler). He held it the whole way home saying "Ari happy! Boon! Ari happy!" Absolutely adorable! He's snoozing now, I'm sure he'll be out until dinner time. That means quiet time for mommy, hehe! I think I'm going to lay like brocolli on the sofa, I'm exhausted. I didn't sleep well last night and my morning nap was cut severely short by the new neighbor working on his car stereo and tuning up his boat at the same time. Fanatastic. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, we may head to the Symphony tomorrow if the weather holds out! Happy Summer!!
