On Wednesday, I decided to try my first outing with both kids on my own. Saunders was a little worried about me getting out and going somewhere by myself since I'm still on "light duty" until my six week checkup, but I was excited about seeing if I could do it. So, Katie Anne and I decided Bounce N Beans would be a good first stop!
The morning rolled out without a hitch - I got myself and both kids ready to go according to my carefully planned schedule. We were waiting to call Bounce N Beans when they opened at 10:00 to make sure it was an open jump day, and then we were heading out. However, SJ4 decided he was ready for his bottle about 30 minutes early, and that didn't factor into my plan. I had planned to feed him while Katie Anne was playing at Bounce N Beans. We were meeting my parents and grandmother for lunch at noon, and stopping to feed him his bottle at home would've taken up all Katie Anne's bouncing time. So, poor SJ4 just had to man up, stick to the plan, and wait (not too patiently, I might add) for his bottle at Bounce N Beans. Once we got there (it's only about a 10 minute drive from our house) and he got his bottle, he was much happier!
Katie Anne was so excited about going to Bounce N Beans:
The place was not crowded it at all - it was just four other little girls there. She was thrilled to play with some girls her own age:
She got lots of energy out ...
... had a sweet time ...
... and I got the confidence boost of taking both my little munchkins out and about successfully!
