Fun at the Hoppin' House

This morning I took the kids down to Hoppin' House in Lakeway, a fun place with a bunch of those inflatable bouncy things. Both kids had a blast! Carter would love it if I'd take him there everyday! And Courtney had the most fun she's ever had there, she is not shy at all about taking off and climbing over everything! (Carter was never like this at her age!) Carter was playing peek-a-boo around this obstacle, making Courtney laugh like mad.Carter climbed up the verrrry tallll inflatable to go down the great big slide - but of course got to the top and chickened out. So, up I climbed and slid down with him! I have to admit, it's FUN - so we did it two more times. :-)Courtney loved practicing her walking in the inflatables - when she fell it didn't hurt one bit.I always pack a lunch when we go - they have tables you can sit at to eat. Today I brought an apple for me, but Carter claimed it for himself. This is a little bit of a milestone - he has never wanted to eat the skin on the apple before, and I have always cut it up for him. But today he said that "Spirit eats apples with the red part still on in the horse movie" and wanted to try it too (one of his favorite movies these days is Spirit - it's a really beautiful animated flick if you've never seen it!).I tried to take a photo of me and Carter, but couldn't get him to stop making goofy faces. You should see some of the other ones I rejected!!Carter took this photo of me and Courtney, pretty impressive I must say! My little budding photographer...Courtney has her fingers crossed we'll go back to Hoppin' House again soon!

Great pictures. I think Carter looks just like Joel did when he was a kid in that one picture playing peek-a-boo.
