alamo kidsports

It's hot outside. Not surprising since it's Texas and it's just a fact of life here so no reason to complain about it. We had a very welcome cool front the other week bringing the temps down into the high 80s but now it's back up to the high 90s/100.  However being that hot means we are playing inside or in water of some sort. Our pool has odd hours since they have swim lessons there as well and I don't always feel up for heading to Sea World (though we do at least once a week!) Which means by this point in the summer we are having to get creative with indoor play.

We were recently invited along with some of our other local bloggers for an open play at Alamo KidSports. I wasn't sure what to expect but I knew it was a good opportunity to let the kids run off some energy. And run off some energy they did! I'll let the pictures do most of the talking. I know they make me tired looking at how busy they were!

These rolling things (what are they actually called?) were a hit. Lexie watched the big kids run (and scare mommy!) and roll on them and had to try it for herself. She is very proud of herself when she can do something that the big kids are doing.
They tried shooting a few hoops.  
Micah really enjoyed this.
Lexie hoarded some balls... 
And tried to figure out how many she could hold at one time.
Soccer was also a big hit 
As were the hula hoops. They also were trying to jump rope and also do tricks with them. 
Everyone had a great time and have asked several times when we are going to go back and play again. 

I would have loved to see how their sports classes are run! I saw a few videos on posted on the Alamo Kidsports Facebook page of kids participating and it looks like a whole lot of fun! Their sports classes are charged monthly based on the number of classes that month at $18 per class. I mean how nice would it be to watch your kids sports lessons in the air conditioning instead of sitting in the Texas heat? 

They also offer open play sessions like we attended which are free for members and $7.50 for non-members. They will be posting their August schedule of those soon but none are offered currently with summer camps going on so keep an eye on their FB page for that. 

Disclosure: I was invited along with others to play during a special open play session. I was not required to blog about it but my kids loved it so much I couldn't not share with ya'll. All opinions are my own.

Great pictures, Katie!

I'm looking forward to more open play sessions, too.

I am also keeping Alamo Kidsports in mind for when it's time to plan another party. It works for so many ages, and in any kind of weather.

Looks like a fun place & the kids enjoyed it.
