Little Gym, Big Fun

We went to a birthday party at The Little Gym for Ava's friend Charley.
Ava was so excited she talked about it no less than 563 times Saturday morning.

Ava used to go to The Little Gym when she was about 18 months old, but that was only for a semester because she stressed me out always doing her own thing and never "playing" uring mat time. Haha! I know, I know, she was 18 months old, but the teacher in me just couldn't help but stress out every Tuesday when we left there. I would imagine her in kindergarten getting up during circle time and talking while the teacher talked and so on.
Anyway, back to Charley's birthday...

It was Barney themed, and here is Charley wearing the Barney outfit I showed off last week!
Charley's mom was really paranoid about her having a Barney outfit. She hates the whole character look just as much as me.
Thank goodness I didn't disappoint with this number!
Ava enjoyed some cake...

and then she was ready to hit the gym and get her wiggles out!

She kept jumping from this mat and scaring the ever living daylights out of Aaron and I!!

This picture is super blurry (I blame it on Aaron, he took it) but the action shot cracked us up!!

I'm pretty sure I can say with 100% certainty the swing incident last week had little impact on her, other than a jacked up chin.

I loved the idea of a Little Gym birthday party and I am super tempted to have Ava's here as well. It seemed so stress free and since it has rained every year on her birthday, this seems like a much better idea than the park or our house.
I like that Charley's was at a venue but still had a theme. I'm sure ours will be "Yo Gabba Gabba" themed so this might just be our best play.

P.S. Did I just say that? Shoot me now if I have to throw a Yo Gabba Gabba themed party!


  1. She is sooo cute, but, also you are so cute in matlida jane!!! I want adult matilda jane too, it looks so great on you!
    ok, but also, look at this yo gabba gabba party on kara's party blog. she has the BEST party ideas!

  2. I agree completely with Jaclyn and that the Matilda Jane outfit looks fantastic on you!! You are totally rocking it!! I don't think I could pull it off! Ava looks like she had a ball and she is one tough little cookie! I feel so bad for her and her chin. Bless her heart, what a fun party! I might have to keep that in mind for Mollie's 3rd birthday. Can you believe they are going to be 3 in less than 6 months??

  3. We love The Little Gym too!!! It would be so fun to have a party there and so super easy. I love your outfit too. I didn't know there was such a thing as adult Matilda Jane. Also, Ava and Lauren need to hang out when we finally sell our house and move. Those girls have no fear!

  4. ok first of all...AVA is ADORABLE, PRECIOUS,!!!

    and you to my friend...are super cute in matilda jane!!!! i don't think i could pull it heather said!!!
    we have a Little Gym here that might be great for john daniel's 3rd birthday party!!!

    love the action shot!! no fear!!!

  5. I am all about having Em's birthday party on location this year. Can't do it one more year---the stress! Little Gym looks like fun--love Aaron's action shots too!

After having my girly girl in April of 08, and spending oodles of money on one of a kind boutique, monogrammed clothing (with hairbows to match), I decided it was time to learn this trade myself before I went broke! I learned how to sew, embroider, and make hairbows in a matter of 3 months. What started as a hobby has turned into a dream come true. I quit my job as a teacher and now work from home when the little one sleeps. My life as a mommy and a boutique clothing designer/manufacturer/monogrammer is truly the best of both worlds!! I have big dreams for the future of my family and the future of SheShe Made. Thanks for joining me as I blog about the journey. Let me know if there is a bow or outfit you'd like custom made for you! Email me at and thanks for stopping by!
