Yes. It is a bit cold out.

Nara asked use to go a bouncy castle.
We went to the drop in at Kerrisdale arena a year ago (it's open
summer only) and somehow she remembers. We did some
searching and found a drop in at Trout Lake that has a bouncy
castle. We packed the kids and went for it.
This gym had a modest sized bouncy castle, and it was happy times
for Nara. She got in lots of jumping and sliding, but only
one jump down the slide (she bounced off at the landing).
There was lots of other activity in the gym - a good number of
ride on toys and things to pick up.
This was Claira's first time in bouncy
castle and she had a good time. She is walking well enough
now that she can take on challenges like walking over things
without holding on and moving surfaces (she likes climbing onto
the couch and the rocking chairs at home). I think by next
summer she will be to keep up with her sister in most activity.
When we got the kids home they were just bushed
- they went to sleep quietly and slept for almost three hours.
turned five and Nara got an invite to the birthday party.
The party was held at the Adventure Zone at Granville Island -
we have been there
back in February. Noelle is considerably
older than Nara (a year and half) so it was a bit hard for Nara
to keep up (or interact meaningfully) but Nara had a great time.
I'm the first to admit,
Nara really likes cake. We don't really have cake other than
for birthday parties so Nara always asks if there is going to be
cake. She isn't picky - ice cream cake is good too.
Half a year ago, Nara wouldn't go through the Adventure Zone very
much - she just wanted to stick around with Daddy. This time
she was more brave about exploring the place. They have
significantly refurbished the place - new balls, new mats, new nets
and it looked really clean when we visited. Nara quite liked
the ball pit in the bottom, but she insisted on clean up when other
kids lets balls out of the room.
Claira is too young for
the Adventure Zone, but the party room has great light. She
had a good time just looking around at the various game systems and
watching Nara climb around. Thanks for the invite!
