Kangaroo Zoo

It keeping with the busy weekend theme we seem to have each weekend. Friday night Cody met me in the driveway with the boys already loaded up to go to Kangaroo Zoo. It was our first time to take the boys to any bounce house playground other than Wild Child.  Wild Child is quite a bit smaller, but that means it can be managed by just one parent. Kangaroo Zoo definitely is not a one parent place.
I was a little worried about how big some of the inflatables are and the climbing. It turns out I had no reason to be concerned. The boys quickly warmed up to even the largest of the slides. It was hard to take pictures while we were there due to the the dimness of the lights and the boys running non-stop. Please excuse the blurriness of some pictures the boys were moving fast.

After looking through all of the pictures I took it looks like I ended up with a lot of pictures of the boys climbing. Probably because it was the only time they were in one place for more than 20 seconds.

It took a few tries for the boys to get the hang of climbing and using the handhelds. As soon as they got it though there was stopping them. One slide I wasn’t so sure about because of just how big it is, it’s three stories tall and fairly steep. At first I was worried that they would get to the top and not want to come down. Since parents can’t go on the inflatables we’d be in trouble if someone decided not to come down on his own. Luckily they were fearless.

Parker had a little trouble climbing up the first time. Cody and I stood at the bottom cheering him on. Since he was leading the charge if he had slipped it would have looked like bowling with toddlers. Taking pictures of the boys coming down the slide provided to be a big challenge. With the covers over the slide it was extra dark and the boy flew down the slide. We also couldn’t see them from the bottom so we had no idea what side the boys would be coming down. I got lucky once and caught Andrew on the way down with Parker waiting and watching from the top.

After about two hours of not stop running we took a short break at the kid sized tables.

Which quickly became chair stacking.

Can I just ask where my little toddlers went, they are looking so much older.

They were done after about another half hour of playing. There is a frozen yogurt place next door where the boys enjoyed some chocolate, vanilla and raspberry pomegranate yogurt while watching Spongebob. Since the place is so large I don’t know when we’ll be back because there are too many other things we’d like to do as a family and the boys are at least a year away from being given free reign there.
