Celebrating Stella’s 7th at Sky High Sports

My best friend’s daughter, Stella, and my son are two months apart in age. On the 16th of March, Stella turned seven. Angry Kid turns seven in May. This year Stacey held Stella’s birthday party at Sky High Sports in Costa Mesa.  Because Stella’s party was held on a Saturday, Stacey rented a private room. It was one of the best decisions that Stacey made in regards to the party.  The day of Stella’s party was a VERY rainy and stormy day.  It seemed like everyone in Orange was looking for something to do, so they headed to Sky High Sports.

Sky High Sports is a trampoline fun center.  You can bounce forward, backward, or even do flips on the 360 degree walled trampolines.  They even have balls available for a little trampoline dodge ball game.  It was super fun to watch the kids bounce around on the trampolines.  Angry Kid had never been to a place like this and he had a blast.

We were supposed to go there during Christmas Break for their open play time, but unfortunately Angry Kid was sick.  They have several open play times during the week where you can pay a flat fee for an hour plus of jump time.

I utilized my iPhone during the party to take a bit of video of Angry Kid. I spliced several different videos into one, so don’t be hatin’ on my craptastic video skills.  After you see this video, you will understand why the kids were all so tired. Obviously my kid is the one wearing the green shirt and jeans. It was St. Patrick’s Day after all.

After some food and jumping, it was time for cake, well cupcakes.  Stacey purchased the lovely cupcakes from Kristin of Meringue Bake Shop, a local favorite.  I was able to get some pictures of Stella before and after she blew out the candle. I’m trying to make-up for my son’s birthday last year, when I didn’t get pictures of him blowing out the candle.

Stacey consulted with me on options, and I think Stella really liked her gift. Stacey had me order Stella a Spirograph. I hope that I’m not dating myself, because I loved mine as a kid. I could do those circles for hours and hours. I remember received one as a Christmas present.  I’m pretty sure that Angry Kid would want one of these if he had actually seen what it does.  Stacey and Stella came over on Saturday and we all went out to lunch together.

The Spirograph, in it's 3 days at our house has already provided hours of fun. I just bought some multi colored pastel pens for her to use. She loves that thing! It's a little pricier than the usual bday present we buy, but I think I may stock up on them for presents. Stella loves her spirograph so much! Thanks Mama Julie!
