Fun at the Playground!



Yes, we had fun at a playground -- an indoor playground, that is! In an attempt to shake our collective fists at the foggy and dreary weather, Maddy and I went to the indoor playground the other day for some fun!




We're trying not to let the cold, gray, foggy days get us down and the playground was just the thing! We met some friends there, Jodee and her kiddos and Kim and her daughter. The kids had a blast riding scooters, trikes, driving a camper, climbing and jumping in an out of a hippo's mouth! Carson and Maddy loved the 3-wheeled scooters. Carson said to put that at the top of his birthday wish list! Make note of that - Jodee and Chef Daddy!




We were somewhat successful in getting the sun to come out . . . for a little while and then it hid away again under the clouds and it started to snow a little! I'm definitely hoping for good news from the groundhog in a week or two!



These two had so much fun together! Carson was driving the camper while Maddy was getting things ready for a tea party!

Sounds like a fun day! We could use a good indoor playground around here.

I'm with you keeping my fingers crossed for an early spring!

Thank you so much for joining us at the Indoor Playground yesterday. The kids had a blast! Carson loves hanging out with Maddy and Kamree asked if she was coming to Sesame Street Live with us today. I almost called you!

My husband calls these places Petri Dishes (because of all of the germs), but I call them Sanity Keepers (because hel-LO?!?!!). Glad to see y'all kept your sanity. And hopefully you used hand sanitizer when you left. *grin*

What great pictures! We had such a fun time, it was a great escape from the winter gray. Have a great week!

We have a school day off tomorrow so we're headed to the same type of place.

What a great time you all had. So great that you could hooked up with some good friends. Makes it even more fun. Your little darling also looks like she's having a great time.

I looked at that first picture and thought-- that looks like CArson and then I read on and realized it was. How fun that you know Jodee and get to hang out with her and the kids. That is so fun and so cool!!! I was just at Jodees blog. Maddie is as cute as can be- as always!!

Thank goodness for indoor playgrounds and friends.
It's so necessary to get out and do this type of thing in the winter.
I agree with TM, sometimes they can be Sanity Keepers. Just as important for the moms as the kids.
Fun pics!

I wish that we had an indoor playground. This weather just seems endless. This morning the streets were icey again and many schools started late or were called off because of the drifting that the high winds are causing.

Have a good week!!!

What a wonderful indoor playground! Looks like you all got some much needed fun...sometimes you have to create your own sunshine, although I'm sure Maddy shines enough for all of you!

Great indoor playground! So many smiles. We are in our coldest month but I am sure we will get no sympathy from our northern bloggers!
