My oldest child and only son, Abel, recently turned 7; and in celebrating this year, we did something for him that we had never done before: we took his birthday party to the Sky!
Because Abel doesn’t have any brothers, I have felt it especially important that I give him extra opportunities to relate with other boys. That’s one reason why I decided that for his birthday this year I would like to give him a special party to celebrate with his friends.
Now, I’m not much of an event planner—and my “boy mom” skills are still developing—but when I began thinking about options for a FUN birthday party that a group of ACTIVE boys would enjoy, there was one place that I knew would fit the bill exactly: Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park.
And I was right!
Abel’s Sky Zone birthday party was unmatched, high-flying, ACTIVE FUN! From the open jump area where the boys enjoyed bouncing off the walls (literally) to the foam pit where they practiced their flips and cannonballs to the basketball and dodgeball courts where they got their game on, the boys (and their sisters) flew through an hour of jump time with delight in their eyes.
And my delight came next, when it was time to head to the Party Room. Moms, you can imagine my joy when I saw that our Sky Zone Party Hostess had everything ready to go for us. The table was set, the pizza and drinks were ready to be served, and the gifts and personal belongings were neatly arranged.
Throughout our 40 minutes in the Party Room, our hostess handled everything. She served the food, she refilled the drinks, she cut the cake, she lit the candles… she even filled out a gift list as the birthday boy opened his presents. And maybe the best part? She cleaned it all up when we were done!
Seriously, beyond booking the party and showing up, all I had to do was to choose the pizza toppings and drink options and to bring the cake (which Sky Zone would have also provided at a cost had I so opted). They supplied all the table service and even the birthday candles, and they did all of the setup and cleanup.
Oh, and did I mention that they provided the FUN?!
