I love it when my daughter calls me “adventure mommy.” It’s a moniker that I am proud to sport. I like to do more than sit at home and watch the Disney Channel (no disrespect) so I love to take my kids to fun and interesting places. As matter of fact, this last weekend we went to a place called Jumpoline Park in Aurora. Great place to go. The inside is just a bunch of trampolines and there is even a caged off area where we could play dodge ball against one another (the kids ganged up and beat me) or challenge each other to a game of Hoops (I’m not good at basketball when I’m standing still let alone when I’m jumping up and down). We weren’t there for a party – we kinda created our own!
Specials for Moms Day
Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13th – but I am already seeing some great Mother’s Day Freebies. TCBY has a sign up that says “Mom’s eat free” and at Tokyo Joe’s when you purchase a bowl Mom gets her choice of a regular bowl, 8 piece sushi or a big salad and a fountain drink. I’ll post more next week – but if you see any please email me. Caribou Coffee is offering a BOGO (Buy One Get One) coffee drink on Mother’s Day.
