Fun party pad

This past summer I took the boys to Sunrise park most weekdays for the free lunch. It was a good budget stretcher, and the kids ran off a few of those popsicles they'd eaten every day all summer long.

I ran in to Mark and Sharyl Wasden there a few times and they let me in on a fun Twin Falls secret. They have a party place with those cool inflatable bounce houses. It's called Hop 2 It and it's just down the street from the movie theaters near Kimberly Road.

In exchange for some family photos (which they haven't called to have me do yet-- come on Mark, we're waiting on you), they let us have Caitlin's 4th birthday party there. That was a blast!

The kids got to bounce around and generally be crazy for a couple of hours and then we had ice cream and cake. Mark and Sharyl provided drinks and utensils, and even provided a cute T-shirt for the birthday girl. We invited practically the entire 1st ward primary. I think there must have been 40 kids there. Everyone had a great time.

Check it out, and if you're having a birthday or some other party soon, go there. You won't be disappointed.

Hey Clark,
Here's the bread recipe:
Basic Bread Machine 100% Whole Wheat bread
2 1/2 teaspoons dry instant yeast
1 1/3 cup water
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup honey, molasses, or maple syrup
3 1/2 cups whole wheat bread flour (more if needed)
1/4 cup nonfat dried milk
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
2T wheat germ

It was really good. When I got home from work today, I found out the dog had eaten two-thirds of the loaf. Bad dog.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Gromit?

Gromit is right. Well, almost right. It was actually Wallace who said, "Cracking toast, Gromit" TO Gromit. I want a toast machine like that.
