Most Sundays are spent relaxing at home and cleaning the week’s built up mess. After much lost motivation, I decided to not plop in front of the television once again. I decided to get out of the house instead. Yesterday held a beautiful 71 degrees, however today is a whopping 40 degrees. Got to love Maryland weather!

I decided to take my son to one of his favorite places called, Coco’s Fun house. It has bounce houses and arcade games. Luckily, my son isn’t too big or too old for it yet, which I love. He was so excited to go.

I haven’t taken him here in a long time, so it was nice to see how well they have upgraded. They took out a big slide and added in a plastic obstacle course with tunnels. They have more of a food selection as well. There was even more things for the children under 5 to do. They definitely improved the place and I was grateful for a better experience.


It also still had some of his favorites as well. There was a big pirate ship bounce house, a carousel bounce house, and a long inflatable obstacle course. The very tall inflatable slide is one of his favorites though.


I loved watching his face light up and his eyes searching for the next fun thing to do. It brought me joy to see him happy and excited. I loved seeing other little children with these same expressions as well. The small children were cute to watch as they were exploring these obstacles for the first time. It was also very sweet to see my son be so gentle and patient with the smaller children to protect them and not rush them. It was also upsetting to see how many parents just let their children run free while they sat down sucked into their phones. They weren’t enjoying the experience with their children. They weren’t there to correct them when they were out of line. They weren’t even concerned of where their children were at times.

I know exactly where my child is at all times because he knows to not steer far from me. In fact, he comes to me all of the time to tell me exactly where he is and what he is doing. He likes to get me involved even though adults aren’t allowed in the bounce houses – so sad. He asked me to count to see how fast he can get through the long inflatable obstacle course. So, he takes off running as I count down the seconds. Sometimes he takes over one minute depending on how many other children are in his way. His best record was 32 seconds. He was sweaty and wearing himself out trying to beat his own record. He’s so funny.


We also played a couple games of basketball hoop and air hockey. That was fun for us both. We grabbed a few finger foods and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Then, it came to ending time. I gave him a 15 minute warning. Once our time ran out, he asked,”Can I go down one more?”. I thought for a second and replied, “Yes, but just one”. He ran through that obstacle course one last time with a 35 seconds. He was so close, but satisfied with his timing.
