We just got home from a fun filled weekend away. One place we stayed was Dubuque Iowa and in Dubuque we went to Jumpin' Janes, a jumping place for kids filled with blow up jumping toys and an arcade. I was excited to take my kids to this site because it was one of the top places to visit on a website for the city.
Sadly we made our visit shorter because of the cleanliness or should I say lack of it. Beyond the dirt and grime in the building there were other dangerous factors that made me consider calling to report it, but who would you call? I truly have no idea??
So here are a few pictures I snapped:
In the top right photo is a electric outlet filled with a huge pile of dust. This is right under the air hockey table right in the middle of the play area so the visibility was clear! The bottom left picture shows more dust which was near a bench for sitting and right by a play area. The bottom right picture is showing the flooring uneven which was present in several areas! :( It's saying, "Look at me I'm going to trip your loved one."
I have been to other jumping places and none of them gave me shivers down my spine by the amount of dirt and dust!
Not sure how they stay open!
Have you experienced dirty play areas for children? How would you handle this situation? Who would you call to get the place cleaned up??

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
