My sister knows how much my family and I like to go, go, go! For my daughter’s birthday, she sent us a punch card to Run Jump-N-Play in Mason. We have never been there, so we were excited to check it out!
Recently my husband took my son up to the Big House for a football game. It was looking like it was going to storm here, so it was a perfect time for my daughter and I to go and check it out and have some girl time!
Run Jump-N-Play is located near the Deerfield Towne Center, so we were able to run some errands, go and play while it sprinkled outside, grab some lunch, and then finish up our shopping without having to travel far to get it all done.
The parking lot was full of cars when we got there, but to our surprise they were all there for a private party and using the inflatables. We had the play area and basketball courts to ourselves for a good 30 minutes before additional kids came for open play.
The play area has four different plastic playhouses for kids, which my daughter and I used to play “The 3 Little Pigs.” She would run into a house and I would say, “Little pig, little pig, let me in!” She doesn’t quite understand the story yet because she happily opened the door and let me in each time.
They also have multiple play structures to climb up, slide down, and swing on. My daughter tested them ALL out before finding her favorite! After wearing herself out climbing up and down, we went and jumped on one of the many spring-less trampolines. We had so much fun singing, “Ring around the Rosie” and falling down on the trampoline together.
Before we left we practiced our basketball skills. She did her best to toss the ball as high as she could. It is located near the exit, so I saved this area for last hoping our exit would be a little easier when it was time to leave. It worked out well for us. She was pooped and happily walked to the car when her five-minute timer went off! I look forward to taking my son with us next time!
