Its my birthday and I'll party if I want to!

You would party too if it happened to you!

I realize that I may just be returning to the fantasy life of an 8 year old, but I love it. So this year I went full out on the birthday party of my dreams (i dream big, okay?!)

First Stop: Power Tumbling- trampolines, giant foam pits, human hamster wheel- How can that not be a good time!



Apparently Bobby's best side in all his flipping photos would be his back side!


Meesh, Kat and I enjoying a little roll...
















And the foam pit...






I feel like Teeter-totters still just invoke fear in my heart, only justified when Bobby bailed on me on our turn... I know that was hilarious when we were six, but is that really still funny? Apparently! I think maybe Scottie was a little nicer to Marcelle!





Always trying to go bigger and better- Emily and Brian decided to try to get ON TOP of the human hamster wheel, rather than a measly ride in it.

If you look closely at this photo, you may notice that Emily's first attempt was not all that successful. She may not be high enough, but dang, check out that form! She must be a dancer! (we won't display the outcome photo of this attempt!)

That's a little more like it!


And again the amazing acrobatics of Brian and Emily. Too bad the loop wasn't a ring of fire!!

Who knew that Bobby and I are apparently Kung Fu Fighters?

Happy 5th birthday! (did you get that? I was making a comment on how you went to a tumbly place and had a fish pinata....) :) Looks like fun!

I think you guys look like those cool Japanese cartoons in the kung foo pictures. You could totally be Dragonball Z characters!

Happy Birthday! What a fun idea! I think my favorite would be the foam pit...I always used to get in trouble for sneaking off and jumping in that during gymnastics:)

FYI--Kung Fu Panda comes out this weekend & the boys saw your photos and trailers of the movie and now know what to do...they are getting pretty good. Hari props himself on the back of the couch to do his leg moves easily. LOL.
