Party Central: Flying High at Sky Zone Trampoline Park in Van Nuys!

I recently celebrated my 39th birthday at Sky Zone Trampoline Park in Van Nuys, CA.  I've been to a few different indoor trampoline parks and I have got to say that this location is, by far, MY FAVORITE!!! Upon entry, the first thing that we noticed was the cool, fresh air blowing throughout the entire facility. That means no funky, musty, stuffy, stinky, foot jam odor smacking you in the face! I was instantly impressed. My entire family was instantly impressed. I was greeted as soon as I walked in and before I knew it we were being checked in for our party. Our coordinator, Jason, immediately took all of our shoes, purses and jackets and assured us that they would all be waiting for us in our private party room. The best part about checking in at Sky Zone was their super comfy orange Sky Socks. Every jumper must be wearing a pair of Sky Socks in order to enjoy the facility. That's why is doesn't stink in here! Everybody is wearing brand new, clean socks. No stinky dirty bare feet or week old "lucky" socks. Thank you Sky Zone!


Once we were all checked in, it was time to take flight. The layout of the Van Nuys location is off the charts. There is so much to do. Literally, an area for everyone. A basketball area called Sky Slam. A massive foam pit called Foam Zone. Multiple dodge ball courts which was the instant hit with our group. There's even a toddler area which is closed off and perfect for the little ones. I've never seen that at any other indoor trampoline park.


All Party Packages at Sky Zone include:

·  1 HOUR OF JUMP TIME
·  40 MINUTES IN PRIVATE PARTY ROOM AFTER YOUR JUMP TIME
·  1 PAIR OF SKYSOCKS PER JUMPER
·  ACCESS TO SKY SLAM AND FOAM ZONE
·  FULL COLOR INVITATIONS AND ENVELOPES (PICK-UP IN-STORE ONLY)
·  SKY ZONE T-SHIRT FOR BIRTHDAY BOY OR GIRL
·  DEDICATED PARTY HOST
·  PARTY UTENSILS INCLUDED
·  PARTY ROOM SET-UP AND CLEAN-UP
·  FOOD AND DRINKS
·  TWO 1-HOUR RETURN JUMP PASSES FOR BIRTHDAY BOY OR GIRL

After our 1 hour of air-time had passed, our group moved upstairs to the private party room for pizza, drinks and cake. Sky Zone had quite a few different areas available for the dining portion of your party. A few rooms were private and they also had open areas overlooking the trampoline park. There is definitely a space to fit any size group. The kids and adults had a great time munching on pizza and cake. I would have to say that my favorite part of the party was seeing my name written in chalk outside of our private room!



We all had such a great time celebrating at Sky Zone in Van Nuys. The time had finally come to say goodbye to our friends so our awesome party coordinator brought all of our shoes and personal belongings right to us before we headed downstairs to part ways. I highly recommend this location for your future group events and parties. The staff is so professional and happy. The facility is clean and spacious. The food was great and the memories will last a lifetime. Thank You to our friends at Sky Zone Van Nuys. We will definitely see you real soon!

Holidays are Always Happy at The Children's Place!

I can always count on The Children's Place to have exactly what I need to keep my kids warm and looking festive during the Holidays. On my recent visit to The Children's Place, I found some great pieces for my kids that are sure to keep them cute and cozy all throughout our SoCal Winter!

I loved everything I saw for my daughter. The soft pastels were such a refreshing change from the traditional colors that are used this time of year. The Winter Wonderland themed tops and bottoms and faux fur vests were a hit with Mya. She adores the faux fur! The Children's Place never ceases to impress me year after year.


 

Every Winter, my absolute favorite pieces from The Children's Place are their fabulous fleece separates! I was so excited to grab a set for each of my kids. My boy's love camouflage and TCP has two different colors of camouflage fleece pullovers. I had a tough time picking a fleece pullover for my daughter. I knew she would love the stars, the hearts and the leopard print. I finally played a round of eeny meeny miny moe and the stars won!


The Children's Place always helps me get my kids ready for their school's Holiday Show and this year was no different. The dress selection for girls was amazing! I instantly fell in love with the floral print dress below and couldn't wait for Mya to wear it. My boys will be wearing plaid, button down shirts with black pants. There is a great variety of long sleeve shirts and crew neck sweaters for the boys this year.



Don't forget the fun Winter accessories! The Children's Place has a great variety of adorable knit hats for kids with matching scarves, mittens and gloves. Keeping warm never looked so cute!


I usually keep a mental count of how much I am spending as I shop the store, but this time I just grabbed everything I wanted and headed to the register. I was completely shocked to find out how much I had saved when my grand total was so under what I expected to spend.


You can't go wrong with graphic tees from The Children's Place. They always offer such a great variety of tees for boys and girls. The current obsession in my home is Minecraft and I was all over the Minecraft tees for my boys. My kids were so happy to come home and find all of these great clothes waiting for them. They jumped right into their cozy fleece outfits and ran outside to test their pullovers against the cold because we all know how blisteringly cold it gets out here in Los Angeles during the Winter. Ha!
