Monkeying Around

To celebrate MM's birthday, I cut out of work a few hours early and picked up the girls to go have some fun. We headed to the Monkey Room to climb and play and burn off some energy. The Monkey Room is like a super nice McD's play yard on steroids. They play fun and funky children's music. Snacks are available. And of course, party rooms.  This is how there website describes it.

The Monkey Room provides fun and active play for children from infants to pre-teens in a single location.

The Monkey Room contains a huge, custom designed play structure for children 3 – 12 with slides, climbs, obstacles, and other fun elements to explore. An adjacent toddler area for younger children includes play equipment sized just for this age group.

We want to get kids moving and playing where the weather is no excuse!

At first MM was a little hesitant. She spent the first 1/2 hour in the toddler area. Li joined her and showed her how to climb up and slide down. But as her confidence grew, she decided to try the big girl slide. Li ran around like a wild monkey. Once MM got the hang of the lg play yard, Li would give her a boost up to each level. So cute. The girls had the best time.

Now that we had burned off energy, we were famished and ready to re-fuel.  Since I was driving I got to choose dinner. I'm kinda obsessed with burritos right now so we headed to Juan's Flying Burrito on Magazine.

 The girls loved the guacamole.

Li  only ate the tortilla of her burrito

MM would only eat my burrito

The afternoon was a lot of fun. We had a great time. What's on tap for your weekend?

Oh my gosh, your girls are adorable! Love those curls!!! Funny that one would only eat the tortilla and the other only yours. I'm here to tell you that these quirky habits don't change as they grow older. Ha! My almost 20-year old picked apart her sandwich tonight, god forbid she eat anything "green" (aka lettuce). Have a great weekend! I ran 20 today so going to hopefully be able to attend my athletic training class tomorrow and hill repeats on Sunday. Yay!

Your blog is looking great! I haven't been blogging much lately. I love your post about your fridge. It is fun to see what others have in their fridges!

You wake up at 3:45 a.m.??? Was that a typo? I thought my 5 a.m. runs were early! :)

Have a great weekend - oh and I'm very glad to have a basement. I've heard stories of people all cramming into a closer or bathroom during a tornado warning!

Such cuties!!
I took the kids to a birthday party at a place like that last month. Too much fun! They loved it.
