There's something about a boy in a cape.

So girls get cute outfits and princess dresses with crowns, but boys get capes. And, I have to say, capes are pretty awesome. Last week we went with our friends to check out yet another indoor playground nearby. It actually wasn't the greatest place for a kid Jack's age but they did have CAPES. I just had to put one on him and I wasn't disappointed. I mean, this is a cute image.

They also had a ball pit which Jack was eager to jump in. He loves a good ball pit.

But this ball pit was for older kids so it was pretty deep. He keep sinking down under all the balls. He looks happy here but when he ducked all the way under he was not happy. I kept having to dig him out.

The other thing they had at this place with a light-up dance floor that played music. The big kids mainly ruled that thing and didn't want Jack anywhere near them. But at one point they cleared out and he and his friend could take over and do a little dancing.

One of the craziest things about this place were the moms. I'm sure I'll get to this point at some future date, but all the moms were completely oblivious to their kids. Most were reading magazines and books outside and had no idea where there kids were or what they were doing. I'm sure that's fine since most of the kids were like 3, 4, and 5, but still. Shouldn't you be at least a little aware? I don't know.

And here are a few more pictures from our visit...


  1. Those pictures of Jack in the ball pit are so cute and made me smile!!
    I love his little cape too :)


    And I know what you mean about the inattentive moms - for some reason, this is a big problem at our local IKEA in the children's section, which is strange to me because most of the time the kids are old enough to be down in Smaland if their parents wanted to do some shopping.
