Bouncy Houses


So I’ve been to a lot of birthday parties in bouncy house places now. It’s the thing to do with my son’s generation. Let the kids run wild for a few hours, then give them pizza and cake and hope they nap all afternoon. A lot of the parents just chill and talk while the kids run. Some play with the kids. At the parties I’ve been to though, I’ve been the only parent who takes a camera up into the top of the slides.

It’s been a fun way to play with using my camera in ways that I usually don’t. I was a no-flash, available-light-only guy for years. Bouncy house parties were a great place to play with the pop-up flash and learn how to use it.

I only posted after one party since I liked the before and after photos as well. But I’ve got enough photos accumulated now to make one big bouncy house gallery of kids, and some grown-ups, having fun.
