On Sunday, July 12th we attended an event at the Riveredge called ROCK STAR TOTS! At first I was hesitant to go because the admission price was $10 per person (adults, children, even babies who are walking!)...but I just knew Ryan would enjoy this event, so I had Chris stay home with Kara and Mommy & Ryan went on a date. (FYI- Rock Star Tots have since changed their prices. Check out their website HeRe.)
We had a GREAT time! Ryan, my little music ham, danced from the moment we stepped off the red carpet at 2 pm until it was time to head home at 5 pm. Yes, three straight hours of pure FUN! I was extremely impressed with every little detail the event coordinator put into this event. From the Rock Star decorations to the games, they kept the children interested and the music kept them dancing!
There were several areas set up for when the children just wanted to play instead of dance. Ryan really enjoyed the tunnel.
Back on the dance floor, the DJ surprised us all when he turned on a soap machine instead of the bubble machine!! The kids LOVED it!
The aftermath of playing in suds!
I am not sure what this is called but Ryan really liked to ride it.
They had a quiet corner where the children could sit and read....
Each month has a different theme. July's theme was AIR GUITAR! and it was also their premiere. They had a contest to see who could play their best air guitar. Here's Ryan practicing for the contest...
Enjoying a little ball fun...
Set up next to the quiet corner was a coloring corner!
And a kiddie party would not be complete without Parachute Fun!
They had an area set up for babies and somehow Ryan crawled his way into it!
Finally it was time for the contest. Ryan lined up and excitedly waited for his name to be called. He was the 5th or 6th name on the list, which I thought was good because he could see what the other children were doing first before getting up in front of a crowd all by himself. When his name was called, he ran onto the dance floor. The DJ asked if he was ready and Ryan nodded his head yes. Then the music started and he...
...pretty much just stood there and played his guitar. HA!! He looked SO SERIOUS and of course cute as can be! His mama couldn't have been more proud.
I even caught a clip of it on video. NAME THAT TUNE. Sadly, he did not place in the contest. The girls beat him out with their over the head guitar playing and break dancing moves! You will get them next time, buddy!
(Christy D. can probably name it after the first few notes!)

Rock Start Tots is held every 2nd Sunday of the month from 2-5 pm at the Riveredge. Chantelle, our moms group organizer, spoke with the woman in charge and was able to get our group a nice discount for the month of August. The next Rock Star Tots will be held on Sunday, August 9th. If anyone is interested, please contact me and I will add you to the list!
