The Braves games start at 7:20, so might be a little on the late side for the younger kids

Yeah we asked and the single slide was $1036 or something just by itself so that's wild, we found some cheaper like $600-700 options at a mom and pop probably garage operation but the items were tiny

Ok, so is everyone OK with canceling the bounce house?  $1300 is ridiculous for 6 hours.  Even if it's for 2 houses and some other stuff.

Yeah that’s cool with me. I should be all in for Saturday as well.

FYI, I was able to find a jumper/water slide for like $425 from a different site.  Anyways, that may or may not still happen.  Apparently the other site has a $300 non-refundable deposit...like, wtf?  Barbie is supposed to call today to find out.

Yeah arif and barbie found another slide but it was small, prob not enough for kiddos and late 30s 409ers

I'm thinking if we don't get water slides we should pivot to some other activities for the afternoon, prob gonna be too hot for the kids without getting wet and that would a lot of energy for just the main floor at e-casa all afternoon

What about: morning dg, lunch, trampoline park, hotel pool, e-casa tacos?

We actually have a sizable blow up double slide, it's not quite the same as a rental but it's more than your average yard puddle. We can bring that as an option.

That looks like a legit slide, I’m sure plenty of fun could be had on that. We’re really up for whatever everyone else wants to do Saturday afternoon. What time is splash pad likely happening on Friday? We’ll try to make it up from Tallahassee in time to meet up there if possible.

So Beth might have let slip to Jordan that there was a chance he might get to go to a Braves game while we’re in Atlanta, so I’m pretty much committed to taking him one of the nights. If anyone else wants to join we would love to have company, but completely understand not wanting to do a late night with younger kids. I’m not sure what night would have us missing out on fewer festivities, but I’m probably leaning towards Friday night we’ll head over to the field after dinner.

I'm cool with scrapping the bounce house.  Here are some options:

  1. Chuck E Cheese's:
    • Party slots are all booked, but we could just go for a few hours
  2. Rockin' Jump Smyrna:
    • $15 for 1 hour, $20 for all day.  This is probably better for the older kids though.
  3. Kids Empire:
    • This looks like a good option, but the site is not very intuitive. $15 / kid (2 free adults per kid). Not sure for how long, but sounds like all day
    • They have a party package that would be $360 (30 per kid, 1 adult free per kid) for 3 hours.
Out of those, my vote is for #3 after lunch.

Steven, we were planning on getting there early, because you have to reserve a spot.  It opens at 10, so maybe 9:30/9:45.  We'll play it by ear after that.  Friday night is probably your best option for going to the game.
