Random funday...

We have the best parents. Really, we do!! August 11th was our 10 year anniversary (Yeah, I know!!) so Mah and Dah kept the boy while Ryan and I went to a movie. Then that Saturday, my parents offered to keep him so we could do dinner and a movie. Really? Two movies in one week (or this could be 2 movies in a year.. however you want to look at it :)  Anyways, it was such the treat!

Saturday night we ate at Ruth's Chris --yummy-- and went to see Final Destination 5 in 3D. Yes, I understand this is totally cheeseball but this is one of the reasons Ryan and I get along so well, our stellar taste in movies! We (ok, maybe just me) were so tired by the time the movie was over that we opted to go back to my parents house instead of driving all the way back to Fayetteville. I probably would have fallen asleep on the way home anyway. Just sayin'

The movie theater is at the mall in Rogers. We had been to the mall area earlier that day for lunch and noticed these giant trampoline/bungee things for kids. We told Chaz he was too little and he had to be seven to take part in this activity. Yes, we made that up but it is what seems to be working at the moment. Don't judge. Anyways, as we were leaving the movie that evening we noticed some little kids on this thing and decided to investigate. Some of them were smaller than Chaz so we had to figure out the really. The sign said you had to be 42" and 60lbs. Really? This thing was named Fit and Fun, or something of the like, and they think kids are 42" and 60lbs?? Mine easily hit the height requirement but the weight.. c'mon now! He is only 34 1/2 lbs, which is normal.  Anyways, I stopped one of the mom's coming out and she said her little girl was only 30lbs.  Yep, we are coming back tomorrow!!!

and we did. The boy was so excited and kept asking about the little white lie we told. No, he did not magically turn 7 over night. We coated over that with some excuse of new rules or something of the sort. Anyways, he couldn't wait to take his turn. He was sooooooooooo patient. No really, he was. I was rather impressed. See look.. waiting..
and more waiting...
And then it was time to get harnessed up. I have to admit, I started to get a little nervous at this point. I mean, he is my baby!
He was SO excited. I mean SOOOOOO excited!!
He wasn't quite heavy enough to make it bounce like the other kids. It wasn't necessary for him to be 60lbs but it would have helped to have 5 more on his little frame.  Ryan was trying to explain the physics behind this whole jumping/bungee thing. Chaz was trying to pretend like he cared, HA!
They switched out the bungee cords for the lower weight limit and it seemed to help. Well that and the fact that the lady and Ryan were pulling on his legs. He went from bouncing to more of a slingshot. But loved every moment of it.
This is what he refers to as "BooYaa!" NO, this is NOT the Texas "Hook 'em" sign. Do NOT be confused. This is the "Rock Star BooYaa!!" My kid is a Hog, not a Longhorn. Now that is clear, let's move on.
I had to get a picture of this because the few times he wasn't being slingshotted by his dad or the carney, he was literally dangling over the trampoline. He would try and try to touch the trampoline but even when he pointed his toes, he was an inch or so short.
And the one last trick? Daddy decided to flip him. And, as suspected, Chaz loved it! What a little dare devil. Or 100% boy as they say!

as we left he proceeded to tell us how big he was and how he didn't need to be seven. Just look at how he walks with pride. Such the big boy!
