The guy who came up with this idea is sitting on a gold mine; the kids only have the endurance to jump for 15 - 20 minutes tops then they are done (you pay $10.00 per kid per hour)!!
After they're exhausted from the jumping, there is a snack bar and a bunch of video games for kids to play (which is another way to keep the cash flowing into their pockets!) The plan was go back to my friend, Terri's house for food, etc. after everyone had their fill of jumping. However, the kids wanted to play games, get slurpees, etc., etc.. As a group, the adults developed the 'party-line' comment for the kids that no one had money for games, etc. etc. Past experience has proven once you give them $1, they're back every 5 minutes begging for more like little game playing crack addicts! You would think the kids would get it after hearing the same answer from 5 different adults, but no...they seem to think we would magically come up with cash if they nagged, whined, and pouted. Adults = 1, Kids = 0.
Emmy still upset she didn't get any tokens to play games...she later cheered up after cake and ice cream :)

Goofy faces for the Camera everyone!!
Fay update...It's been raining here all day, but it rained harder yesterday before the storm was even an issue. So the kids were home from school due to a drizzle! The storm is supposed to hit our area tonight around 8 pm and be here until the wee hours of Wednesday morning. The schools response? - Close the schools for Wednesday...Day 3 of the 2008-2009 school year: days of attendance = 1. Isn't it great to be a kid?!
