Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

Jaden turned 6 today, and we had EXTREME FUN at “Extreme Fun“, one of those places where kids jump in the inflatable moonwalks, run to their heart’s content, and have tons of fun.  Tons of EXTREME fun.

But I have an issue with one of their rules:

extreme fun, austin, tx

Look, this is a kids place.  Kids getting to jump on huge inflatable zipcode-sized bouncy things.  They’re gonna push.  And I think it’s ok to push.  What, everyone’s so fragile that they can’t push a little in the big soft inflatable lumps of air? 

First, Jaden had t-ball practice, so there was an hour or more of runing, fielding, hitting, running, catching, more running, and I love that he’s got this outlet for physical exercise.   

This is what we have left of the cake…

And this is what’s left of Jaden after the busy day:

And lo, the people did comment thus:


  1. Avitable says:

    Happy birthday, Jaden!

  2. Dave2 says:

    I don’t mean to imply anything here… but he’s entirely too cute to be your kid. Heck, he’s almost cute enough to be my kid!

    In any event, Happy Birthday Jaden!

  3. Absurdist says:

    Wayne, you ate the whole cake. I can’t believe it.

    I’m with you on the pushing. In fact, I think that shoving, biting, kicking, beating other kids up and so forth should be allowed; even by the parents.

    Funny thing; “the guy” ‘s daughter turned ten yesterday. Glad you had fun! She got to spend her birthday flying to Africa!

  4. Poppy says:

    Awww, happy birthday, sweet boy.

    Hope you got to do some rockin’ out to celebrate. 🙂

    Avi, thanx!

    Dave2, I don’t mean to sound defensive or anything, but I guess my wife’s genes are stronger man than mine.

    Absurdist, I had cupcakes instead. And golden oreos. And powered doughnut holes. And pizza. And a whataburger double cheeseburger. And fries. And we made buffalo/bison filets and ribeye on the grill. So the cake wasn’t mixed.

    Poppy, we *did* get a lot of rocking done, now that you mention it! And Singstar!

    Happy Birthday Jaden! Hope you enjoyed YOUR special day. This is your first lesson of Korean. It’s fun to sing it…

    Jen thanx for the song! and I don’t mean just this Korean one, but the customized Jaden-ized one you emailed us. It’s so cool!
