Pump It Up and The Mix Zone Cafe

It was Najah's 1st birthday and she threw a party at Pump It Up. It was so much fun and the kids had a blast and got a great workout jumping on all the different things and climbing up the slides.

Najah's parents are part owners in a restaurant called The Mix Zone Cafe. It's Thai food and it's REALLY good. You can find it at 2202 WEST CHARLESTON BLVD. #5, LAS VEGAS -
(702) 493-2182
and don't plan on heading there too late - they close around 8pm. They do serve lunch and dinner though and I'm telling you, Jake and I really enjoyed it. We've been missing Thai food for a long time. Their green papaya salad is one of the best I've ever had. Their prices are VERY reasonable. Jake and I ordered 4 dishes for a total of $35 or something like that. The ambiance is awesome and the music is great. Anyway, check it out of you like to try new things or if you just love Thai food.

Here are the party pictures.

Her first car. LOL

Katelyn satisfied after getting Steph's hat back on.

Steph laughing while Kate's trying to put her hat on.

Kate didn't want us jumping around in the jump house. She kept telling us "NO!"

And then she'd smile again.

Then we'd get more attitude when we started bouncing around.

And she's start to whine, (well, the party was during her normal nap time - but it was worth it).

Then she took off running around the jump house while I tried to get some pictures of her.

Cooper loved jumping/climbing onto the mushroom then jumping or diving off.

Mackenzie really had a lot of fun.

"King of the Hill"

Mackenzie just couldn't get enough of the slides.

Cooper couldn't either.

Blogging again.

The Kick N Littles had the first soccer game of the season on April 4th. They played the Chivas from Las Vegas Soccer Academy. I'm pretty sure I don't have to tell you who the winner was. By the way, if there is a parent from Las Vegas Soccer Academy who happens to read this, email me please. I'd love to know how I can get Cooper into the program. ;) Anyway, the kids had a blast - okay, so only a few of the kids had a blast and the rest were freezing their tails off. It had to be at least 20 mph winds. Cooper had to wear his thick red hooded coat under his soccer shirt. Funny, he asked me where his gloves were before we left the house and I laughed at him and said, "you don't need gloves, it's warm outside." Yeah right, I was freezing wearing my jacket and wrapped up in a blanket with Katelyn (who was otherwise occupied with eating her apple and unaware of how cold it was).

I may have put Cooper in the wrong sport. He was getting ready to hike the ball, I think. Maybe I'll try pee wee football next time.

Still didn't get it the second time, but it was cute.

Third time's a charm, right? Really though, he knew he was playing soccer. I have to say though, he looks like he's getting ready to run someone over.

First kick.

The other team. The were sprinting down the field to score in our goal. This occured multiple times. Our team was a little slow to react. I'm just glad they had fun though. Winning is definitely something that's taught to us because they didn't even realize that this little 5 yr old cute Mexican team kicked their butts. Anyway, glad I put Cooper in if I can just figure out how to teach him to control the ball.

Here we are...sweat dried and proud to have finished the 13 mile Red Rock loop. Oh yes, I was having trouble sitting down on the fence and no, I wasn't looking.

Spring Mountain Ranch Easter Egg Hunt

We just did a quick little Easter Egg Hunt at Spring Mountain Ranch today since it was our playgroup outing. No worries, if you missed out we're doing another one at next Wednesday's playgroup. Anyway, here are some of the pictures. The kids were so cute - and the boys could hardly wait too. They were so fast and did a great job. Kate was a little too quick this year to get good pictures, but I took a lot of pictures of my niece Mackenzie. I need a quicker camera.

Lily opening up each egg she picks up. (She was too cute!)

Cooper racing to find more eggs.
Gavin - definitely the fastest one in the bunch, and so generous to share with everyone else.
Katelyn taking forever to get each egg in her bag, and passing up several eggs trying to find the one she wanted.
Trying to get the kids to pose together. Yes, it was a failure.
