Welcome to Tell Us Something Good! I'm so glad you're here. Every Tuesday, my friend Andrea from Angelica's Awesome Adventures and I will be sharing something good with you. We hope that you will share something good with us too. So grab the button at the top, tell us something good on your blog, and link up your post at the linky on the bottom.
It has been so hot here in Central Florida this summer! When we walk outside, we immediately start sweating. This past weekend was no exception. As my dad would always say "It's a scorcher!" when referring to how hot it was outside. The biggest issue with this summer heat is finding things to do with the kids that don't involve being outside.
Thank goodness for cool play places like Amaya Papaya! Amaya Papaya is an indoor play area "where kids play and parents lounge". What I really like about Amaya Papaya is that, unlike the bounce house places, you don't have to chase your kids around the whole time. It is filled with toys, big and small, and it is set up to where the parents can sit in one place and be able to see our kids the whole time. There is a playhouse, a mini trampoline, some ride on toys, a sandbox, and even a little corner designated for the little ones who aren't old enough to run around. There is a little grocery section with play groceries and shopping carts, a dress up section with dress up clothes, and a train table. The best part about it? It is air conditioned!
We met up at Amaya Papaya with some friends this past Sunday. When we first arrived there was no one there but us, and one of my good friends with her baby, and another one of her friends with her baby. While the babies stayed in the little corner section, Rylie and Bryce had full run of the place. They cleared off the shelves in the "grocery store" and had fun pushing the carts around. Just as Rylie discovered the dress up section and put on a little cheerleader dress, her best friend Angelica arrived. Angelica put on a little dress and then they got back to grocery shopping.
After they shopped for a while, the kids sat down to have a little snack. Amaya Papaya has a snack bar where you can purchase snacks and drinks, or you can bring in your own food.
After snack time, Angelica and Rylie traded dresses, and got back to doing what they do best...running around like crazy!
Bryce didn't quite know what to think of those two.
I was hoping they wouldn't pay attention to the sandbox, but of course they did. Luckily, there is a little brush to brush off those little sandy hands and feet!

The kids had a great time and were exhausted when we left. So exhausted that they weren't even able to stay awake for the fireworks show we went to afterwards.
If you're in Central Florida, I highly recommend Amaya Papaya for a "cool" playdate! You can check their website for open play times. They also put on special events and birthday parties.
OK, now it's your turn. Tell us something good...
