Grandma Week 2012: Day 4, Bouncy House and Crafts

When you look at your life, the greatest happinesses are family happinesses. –Joyce Brothers

My mom is so cool. She rented a bouncy house for the day.

Expected delivery time was approximately 7:00 am. Miss Butterfly and LadyBug were up before then, waiting to be the first kids in the bounce house. It wasn't delivered until about 20 after and by then all the kids were awake and waiting. When they got word that it had arrived, there was a stampede up the stairs from the basement and a delighted squeal of, Eeeeee! Bouncy! was heard from Roly Poly as they all went out the door.

During the hottest part of the day, we came inside for crafts. The kids ate about a hundred freezer pops, did fuse bead art and wove bracelets from parachute cording.

It looks like I'm going to have to do this the hard way.

I dont know a kid alive who doesnt love a litle bouncy castle action. Looks like everyone had a ton of fun.

How long did it take everyone to come down off the iceblock sugar high?
