cashier: “That will be $447.99, please.”

me: “Um, no…”

cashier: “Oh wait, it’s actually only 149.99. Wow, that’s a much better price.”


We bought a bouncy castle today. Having looked into them after having so much fun with a since moved away neighbour’s bouncy castle, we just couldn’t pass on the great price.

Bouncy Castle!

I’m not sure what the weather is like were you are but it’s a hot sunny day here with the temperature being 22’C. Sure, it’s not 38’C, but for our temperate climate, it’s feeling quite hot!

Bouncy Castle!

We’re all heading out for a run later before supper and Cam’s going out for a group road ride after. Have to take advantage of this weather when it’s here!

Bouncy Castle!

I think we’ll all sleep well tonight.

    Hmmm, next get-together is at your house I think :o)
    Although I’m not sure that my kids will ever want to leave after seeing that!

    Oh what fun! These are usually reserved for fun fairs and special events. How on earth did you blow that up?

  3. That is so cool! I’m curious about what you had to buy to blow it up too. And where you had to go to find it!

    We used to really enjoy Jackie’s until she sold it! I’ve been waiting for them to go on sale, where did you snag the great price, Annie? Awesome fun for you guys, enjoy! We must be getting all your rain, haven’t seen much sun around these parts for awhile!

    That looks like fun!! It’s rainy and cool here, certainly not good gardening weather. /sigh

    This bouncy castle comes with an air blower that constantly blows air into it. The material and the seams aren’t air tight so it does need constant air. It’s nice that the fabric is not vinyl. It blows up in a minute or so and then deflates pretty quickly too to be folded and stored away.

    Cam and I were just talking about how great this thing will be inside during the winter!

    I bought it at Overwaitea, if you can believe it! They have only two more. I imagine there aren’t a lot of people here who have the yard for such a thing. I wonder if that’s partially why they are so cheap.

    What fun! Our friends here just bought one! Great times!
    I know what you mean about the weather… it was a blazing 28 C here this weekend and I thought we were all going to melt!
    Take advantage while you can!!
