Jungle Jim's

One of the downsides to working full time is not being able to be there for EVERY second of Tyson's life. Although I love my job and that part of my life, sometimes I wish I had a few more hours in the week where I could do fun stuff like take Tyson to Jungle Jim's Playground. Due to the cruddy state of the economy, Doug was forced to take a couple of days off of work (he has since landed another job, THANK GOODNESS!) and figured it was a good time to take Tyson to play with his friend Jordan.
Here is my agile child climbing in the basketball game to steal a ball. Instead of imparting our son with a moral compass, Doug snaps photos of his crime. I knew there was a reason I married him!


Here they play the old favorite Skee-ball...

Although he whines incessantly to sit on rides like this jeep one, he apparently screamed and threw a fit once the vehicle is actually in motion. Weird kid.

A side note: Did they steal the lion fountain from Hogle Zoo? Or have I been fooled into thinking my whole childhood that theirs was the one and only????

OH, we should all meet at Kangaroo Zoo or Jumpin Jacks in West Jordan. Have you been there yet? It's all inflatable fun stuff. Even Jory and I have fun on it. Maybe we can meet Amber and Renato there with Thiago too...we've been trying to go there again. Let me know what you think.

I totally feel your pain on the work situation. It's hard to juggle all hats! I'm glad you could spend some much needed time with your son. Looks like you had fun!

We love jungle jims! cute picture of him crawling into to get the balls.

I used to feel guilty about working until the day I was home and my oldest rolled over for the first time, three times the same night and I missed ALL of them. So I figured I could feel guilty about it, but it really didn't matter much in the long run. Besides all those wonderful moments that we think mean so much - they dont' even remember. They'll remember the stuff you do later on when they are teenagers more.
