Last Friday was fun. Like really fun.
I had decided I wanted to go to a trampoline park for my birthday. We couldn’t get any takers, so we decided to head there on our own! This is the 2nd time we’ve visited Rockin’ Jump and it was just as awkward as the first. We walk through the front door and are asked, “So, what are you here for?”
Um…..to jump on your trampolines?
At this point, I’m mildly embarrassed that I’ve shown up in full workout attire, complete with headband/sweatband. But whatever. It’s a good workout.
The place was EMPTY, which was awesome for us. No little kids to avoid. We practiced our dunking skills on the basketball hoops and our flips into the foam pit. And just for shits and giggles, I proved I could still do a lovely middle split. I should really work on relaxing my face.
There were ulterior motives behind the trampoline park. Yes, we love jumping on trampolines. But we also had a birthday burger to devour (sign up to get YOUR free birthday burger). So I was burning my calories pre-burger.
Red Robin holds a special place in our hearts. It was THE place to hang out in high school – where I’d split an order of clucks and fries with a friend, and always order extra fries (I’m sure the servers hated us!). It’s where I celebrated my 16th (surprise) birthday! And the original Red Robin was just a block away from our college dorm.
I get that people think it’s a dive-y place to go and they view it similar to applebees (which it’s totally not). It’s clearly the Target of restaurants!
After we enjoyed our Red Robin burgers, we headed to movies in the park. California really loves its outdoor movies and it was Kung Fu Panda night in San Ramon! Done!
We grabbed some skittles and junior mints from Safeway and headed to the park with our camping chairs (joined by a friend from work, who shares our love of kid movies).
All in all, it was a wonderful evening. Highly suggest the trampoline park to everyone! Great exercise and tons of fun!
And now I”m off for a whirlwind of travel – weddings and work and more weddings! Taking my vitamins and chugging emergen-c
