To be or not to be....inflatable

Howdy friends! I know it has been a few days since I last wrote... it seems as if I have no time for anything anymore. The Princess's birthday is coming up very soon (about a week) and I am trying to get her party together. I have been having the good old debate about what kind of party a 2 yr. old needs. My inital thought was to take her to one of those inflatable places where the kids have free range to run around and the place provides everything but the cake. Sounds good right? Well, it sounded pretty good to me until I heard the words..."Yeah, and that will run you about $299." After I picked my jaw up off the floor, I politely told them I would call them back after discussing it with my husband. By the way, his reply,"Uh, hell no!" That might not seem a lot to some of you, but seriously... 300 bucks for several 2 yr. olds who can barely talk. I mean, if I am gonna spend that kind of money, I at least want my kid to brag. Oh hell... I would want all the other kids to brag about how cool a party it was. So I quickly dismissed that idea and turned my attention to places like Gymboree and The Little Gym.. but behold.. I was again stricken with the ol, "250" quote. And they provided even less than the inflatable places! So after much debate.. I am going to have the party at a park near our home. It has a Tot Lot and lots of other ammenties.... let's just pray the weather holds out.
