Preparing for a day out with Robinsons.

I’ve never been trampolining at a centre with the kids before so when Robinsons invited us for a day out, we literally jumped at the chance (get it?)! Boing!

We love a good bounce on a trampoline, here. Our massive trampoline however is now in my folk’s garden which can better accommodate its enormity than ours can so it’s been a while since we’ve had a good jumping session making it all the more exciting for us to attend.

What’s not to love about jumping around, getting exercise in the most fun of ways with all the family?! Nada, that’s what!

After breakfast, we made sure we drank some of Robinsons Squash in apple flavour. There’s real fruit in every drop, and no added sugar* making it an easy and tasty way to keep our water consumption up.

We also took along our small squeezy Citrus 0% sugar Squash’d drops along with some water bottles so we could sip on these throughout the day.

Arriving at Kirkstall’s Jump Arena just half an hour away, we firstly watched a safety video on the do’s and don’ts of trampolining before popping our jumping socks on and starting our hour session which involved bouncing around without a care in the world! Brilliant!

It was definitely our kind of Saturday, that’s for sure.

The staff were utterly amazing and couldn’t do enough to make sure the kids were safe and happy; one chap even did a cool flip for us that we caught on camera. Just wow!

Shout out for the fab music in the Jump Arena too. From Ed Sheeran to Bieber, Little Mix and more, I had to actually remind myself that I was on a day out not a night out! I can’t lie (Honest Mum, hey) but this mama was busting some moves in our session (as were a few other parents desperate for a night out like me). The best bit? My kids were so busy jumping, for once I wasn’t accused of being embarrassing so win, win!

Serious note to self: arrange a night out with the girls, pronto.

…Now let me tell you, all this jumping (and mama-dancing) required regular refills, so when we took quick breaks from all the fun, I added the Robinsons Squash’d in Citrus (no added sugar) drops on-the-go into our water bottles so we could stop and have a drink.

You simply mix the drops with water and can make up to a whopping twenty drinks with it. The kids loved the lemony taste too. Squash’d really does makes it so easy to get water into little ones and I loved that the Squash’d bottle could fit easily into my pocket and bag.

We refilled again with snacks in the cafe too when the session was over.

What a super day out. Thanks Robinsons! We can’t wait to get our bounce on again, there soon. There was so much to do from throwing balls in bouncy games of catch, to playing basketball and even walking a trapeze!

I was even buried in bouncy bricks by my kids at one point and couldn’t get out of the pit, much to the kids’ amusement! Thanks guys!

Once back home, I made up some more squash to enjoy over a movie and well earned rest!

    Days out with the family are always fun but more importantly it’s time together without the distractions of home where there is always something to be done.
