Monkey Joe's

Hamilton and I went with our neighbor Kristin and her son Logan to Monkey Joe's this morning. Monkey Joe's just opened in January, and it's an inflatable, indoor playground for kids. We had the place to ourselves, which was great for safety and calmness, but the little boys weren't quite sure what to do with no bigger kids showing them how to play. They preferred running around on the floor mats and squishy carpet in their socks to jumping and bouncing in the inflatable houses.
The boys weren't adventurous in the inflatable houses, but they did seem to have a good time.
Hamilton enjoyed the arcade games and rides, and I eagerly showed them to him knowing he wouldn't realize they required money to "work."
The lights, buttons, and demo screens of the games were enough entertainment for Hamilton. How I will miss these days when he's bumming quarters from me.


  1. You are so funny! Glad you guys had fun. I LOVE Monkey Joes. We've been with our niece and nephew and have the BEST time. It's just a big excuse for us to play : )

  2. Awesome! Lexington has had a MJ for years now. I haven't been before--for obvious reasons really--because I have no children and I don't want my name on any 'list.'
