Open gym time

We recently found out about a gymnastics club in town that offers open gym to kids as young as Ellie. I was anxious to try it out, but dismayed that the Saturday slot was from 11 a.m. to noon... when Ellie is usually either eating lunch or already headed down for nap time. Well, last weekend the stars aligned and she slept in till after 9 a.m. on Saturday. Not only was this AWESOME for mom and dad, but it meant we could go check out the gym without fear that she would fall asleep halfway through.
This place is amazing. This pic was in a huge (swimming pool-sized) pit filled with huge foam blocks. There's a rope swing above where older kids (and some of the dads) can ride out and then fall into the pit. Ellie's not quite there yet, but she did enjoy the pit despite her uncertain look in the picture below. We explored the beginner balance beam...
And then Ellie decided she was ready for something more advanced. Just kidding.
She crawled through a tunnel!
And even bounced a bit on this trampoline. What a fun morning!
