Body Slam

Our friends Bill and Jessica have one of these Little Tykes "Bounce House". Their cute little girl, who is dainty and pretty and nice, loves the bounce house. Bill and Jessica claim she can jump for hours and hours. My kids love going to Bill and Jessica's house because of the "Bounce House." Since the Little Tykes "bounce house" is portable, Bill and Jessica brought it to our house for a party one day. The kids loved it and they bounced with glee.

Witnesses to the glee and joy at the party thought it would be a great idea to have a bounce house permantly at our house, and so we acquired one.

The joy and glee and happy little jumpers lasted a day. You see, I made the mistake of thinking that my boys would be like Bill and Jessica's daughter. I was wrong.

LAAADIES and GENTLEMENNNN. LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLLLLLEEEE...
In this corner we have Wyatt "Super-Fly" Snooka and in the opposite corner we have Max "King Kong Bundy".

We now have Steel Cage Matches every night. Wyatt was the first to get hurt. Max kicked him in the ear. It looks a lot worse in person.


I need to get a black and white Ref shirt now. The only problem is when I go into the bounce house, to separate the two rough housing kids, or to check on injuries, the whole thing deflates. I do not think the "maximum weight" warnings marked on the side are very accurate.

Just goes to show my Mom was right. With all that rough-housing, someone's bound to get hurt. ;)

Poor little guy!

Oh! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY WILLIAM! :)

I really don't know you well enough to slap you. :)

Two thoughts...

1. Do you need to push away from the buffet?

2. I hope the boys don't end up with that embarassing cauliflower ear!

Oh yea, Happy Birthday.

Maybe the deflation will cause the boys to start handling things on their own. "Cut it out! Dad's gonna come in here, and then we'll have to wait for it to blow up again!"

Happy birthday!

As you get older, things tend to deflate. I hope the moon bounce is the only thing

When I first saw the bleeding ear, I thought Uncle Dennis had been visiting.

Happy Birthday, is it? Well then, better line up for your spankings. Or is Wyatt taking those for you this year? Poor li'l fella, hope his ear gets better soon.

For heavens sake don't buy those miniature broom and mop sets either. They WILL be used as weapons.

ya know, Bill, the label clearly states a weight limit of 250 lbs... bounce houses don't lie...

Are you going to rent a commercial bounce house for your birthday? You know you want to.

Thinking of you on your special day.

Doctor visits
Professional Photo sessions
Major 'get together' holidays...

Whatever! You weren't just climbing in to see who was hurt and we all know it. You were totally trying to bounce in the house. Liar liar pants on fire. And OMG the poor kid's ear! Dit it hurt worse having you pull it back to take a picture?

And Happy Birthday!! Saw your picture on Gigglepotamus. What a cutie you were! Oh, but Will Ferrell called, he wants his Elf costume back. Sorry, that was so mean! And on your birthday too. I'm heartless...

Susie said...

Happy Birthday, Bill. May your house always bounce. Or . . . some other wish that you'd really like.

kalki said...

Happy birthday, Bill!! Here's to some birthday body slammin' with Lauren....

Lowa said...

We had one of these and the effing neighbour kids busted the thing!

ON PURPOSE!! Appatently, they thought it would be "fun". I am talking teens, not young kids. These kids are all teens.

I was LIVID. They break all our stuff!

Poor Wyatt, that looks pretty dang painful!

Juli said...

Poor Wyatt! We have that exact same bounce house!

Happy Birthday, by the way :)

James said...

At first I was thinking "we are soooo getting one of these."

But if it can't support dad... fuggeddaboutit.
