jungle jim's playland...

is seriously where it's at.


it's official: we have the coolest granny/mom/c-hop ever.


chloe was addicted to the carousel & the "pri-ee harees."
translation: pretty horsies.


and this ride was a lot faster/harder/bumpier than we had anticipated.
hence myron, on the verge of barfing.


holly might have been excused from school.
sorry tjh; yay for us.


and jtlyk,
605 tickets buys you an awesome flower necklace, one bouncey ball, 1 plastic bracelet, and a rubber duckie with a pink bow, holding a heart that says be mine.

pure awesome-ness.

hit it up: you won't be sorry.

{happy thursday}

So cute...love those places. Rome lives for them. Thanks for commenting on my blog...it makes me feel special. Sorry we missed National Blueberry Pancake Day. Oh, and I tried to take simplicity but I called and it was double full. I'm super bummed.

we had a family night at amazing jake's while carter & gabs were in town & it was a ton of fun too! cute pics! chloe looks so big! and way to be the cool sister so holly could be excused from school! times like that were always the best!

Kim said...

What fun! We will have to check it out. We just do Peter Piper but there's no rides. I'm sure my kiddos would love the rides.

Dance class note... I got the new book today and they don't have the class that Ally is taking right now.
I'm so sad :(

granny said...

And a good time was had by all. I think that was the very first time EVER I got too much spinny ride time. Haha. I must be a senior citizen. Should have eaten breakfast.

when i'm a mom i want to be just like you...just for the record.
i always say "i'm gonna be like angie...totally in love with being a mom."
maybe chloe and my girls (one day farrrrr away...) can be friends.
and just for another record. chloe is the cutest girl in the world.

Angie~ This is Colette Freestone Goodman. I've never commented but read your blog daily. That picture of your family is so funny. I think you should use it for your Christmas card this year.
My family has a blog, too. But we are private. If you want to see it email me and I can add you to the list. colettegoodman@gmail.com

Stephanie said...

roller coasters = yes

spinn-ish rides = big fat no no

Oh what fun it is to ride and have a play day and be happy, and (poor Myron looks like he is going to be sick, with such a great look on his face).
Glad you are having a good time everyday. Still love those tooties(cute toes)
And just look at Chloe's adorable blue eyes! What a knock out!

MeL said...

Myron's face made me laugh out loud. Nothing like adorable family pictures right?

My favorite was always Chucky Cheese. Skee ball was the most awesome of all awesome ticket dispensing games. I definitely could have gone professional.

Fat & Sassy said...

Hi My Friend, I just love your blogs! Help! I want to know how to make the hearts. I tried what you wrote on one of your other entries, but....

They are just so flipping CUTE! If you get a minute, I'd love your help. Thanks, Kayola

sandalloons40 said...

hey Angie,
By the way is the blog being difficult? Just blogspot.com?
I can't seem to post anything. Boo hoo.

Jenn said...

Jungle Jim's is awesome! Faith told me the other day she wants to do fun thing {apparently watching Alvin and the Chipmunks was "boring"} she wants to go somewhere fun like Chucky Cheese or Jungle Jim's.

ForeverSarahLee said...

Oh I haven't been there in forever. Lol! Glad y'all had a blast!

And hey, the comment you ;eft Laura about us. THANKS! You're pretty pretty yourself Angie!

Em said...

I totally remember going there as a kid. I see you guys had fun. Enjoy your time with your sis and fam!

Macey Kay said...

How fun! Cute family pictures...AND Kiley and Brooklyn have the same shirt as Chloe-got to love Old Navy!

Laura Blue said...

ang you are BY FAR the coolest blogger EVER! you always have the most comments and EVERYONE absolutly LOVES you! okay, so i never knew that adults could ride the rides there as well. so fun! what a great day with granny for all! happy weekend!

Kaylea said...

I used to love that place. I haven't been there in forever. I should hit it up again.

The Wizzle said...

Jungle Jim's rocked my world. Well, mostly Eve and Devlin's world. That rocket ship ride made me feel pretty icky though, so I'm really really glad I didn't get on that insane green bumpy Roller Coaster of Death. I must be getting old!

Chelsea said...

Fun time with the family. Poor Myron! Hope everyone recouped over the weekend!

Kaytie Brown said...

What a WAY cool time. That's crazy that that place is still around. I totally remember hitting up some B-day parties there.
P.S. Yeah, Brooklyn totally has that cute shirt Chloe's sportin'

Cassie Ross said...

Wow Angie, Chloe is so beautiful. She looks so dang cute in the picture with the flower necklace. Shockingly I have never been to Jungle Jims. Amazing Jakes, a thousand times, Chucky Cheese, a million times, Golfland a zillion, but no Jims. We should check it out. I remember the last time I went on one of those "spinning" ride I almost puked! I have to say I will never do that again, unless its at Disneyland, cause that never counts. :)

Hey Angie,

I think everyone on blogspot.com is down. What do you think? If you read this can you please send a reply on my comments?
thanks!
