Easy Breezy

Breezy, my six-year-old granddaughter, and I spent last Friday afternoon at Sky Zone.  It’s a fun center for children of all ages, but caters to school-aged kids 6-16 or so.  It has gymnastic type equipment, areas to dive into foam blocks, dodge ball games, and trampolines galore.  Breezy says it’s “just like Monkey Joe’s only without the monkeys.” Nothing could be further from the truth.  … Continue reading Easy Breezy
