Monkey Business

What great fun we had at Emma Cate's 4th birthday party on Sunday. (Yes, THE Emma Cate!) Her party (and Sam's next party) was at Monkey Business in Lexington. It took Sam a few minutes to warm up to all the rides and excitement, but when he did...he was a jumping madman! He fell in love with the huge inflatable slide and the bouncer. That is, until he heard there was cake! As he sat at the table with all the kids, he forced down a corndog but told any adult that walked by "I need some cake." Look how hot and sweaty he was from all the bouncing:

After the cake, I had to chase him down--literally--to get him into the car. All he wanted to do was bounce! The only way I got him into the car was the promise of the M&Ms that came in his goody bag. In this picture, notice the open bag of M&Ms and the fact that we haven't even left the parking lot:

Eight minutes down the road, I turned around to find this:

Bless his heart! There wasn't enough sugar in the world to keep him awake! I drove around for a while so that he got to sleep for about 1/2 hour, but he fell right back to sleep anyway when we got home and slept for almost 2 more hours! I kept trying to wake him up hoping for a reasonable bedtime, but it was 6:15 before he was lucid. He didn't go to bed until 10:00!

When Scott asked Sam about the party, all he could talk about was bouncing and eating cake! Go figure!

By the way, those precious little glasses were also from the goody bag. Amazingly enough, Scott hasn't commented on them yet!

It's good to hear that Monkey Business is fun. I think that's where we're going to have Samuel's birthday party in March!

Yeah, it was a blast! And reasonably priced, too!
