Take a Tour of Freefall Mountain

Recently a couple of Jumpeez decided to climb up to the very top of Freefall Mountain and do some skydiving! One of the Jumpeez was scared of heights and a bit nervous at first. But after seeing so many of her Jumpee friends having a great time, she thought it was worth taking the plunge. Here is what she had to say during her first ever Freefall Mountain experience:

“Hi everyone! My name is Angelina Airshark and… I am kind of nervous to try sky diving on Freefall Mountain. But I’m always hearing about how exciting that fall through the obstacle course can be. And well I’m already up here, so I guess I cannot back down now! All of my friends have taken lift-off and it is my turn to do the same!
1Woah, look at all the balloons around the mountain! Be on the lookout for these as you soar through the air. Depending on the color of the balloon, you can earn points towards your Freefall Mountain score! Green balloons are 100 points, yellow balloons are 200 points, and the very hidden red balloons are 300 points!
2Look! I just found my first balloon, and a yellow one at that!
3Phew, this is way less scary than I thought it would be, but it is really exhausting! I think I will take a break and look at this beautiful view of the blue oceans of JumpStart! Also, if you need an extra boost in the wind, hover or walk across the propellers.

This is incredible! I feel like I am seeing JumpStart in a whole new light!
5Oh no, the timer ran out and I am back on land… Well, I think I am definitely ready to do that again! Since there are 2 different challenges with 10 levels each, I think I might spend the rest of the day figuring out which course is my favorite. I am so glad I decided to conquer my fear of heights and take on Freefall Mountain!”

Preparing for Allergy Season

Springtime weather allows us to do so many outdoor activities with our children. Unfortunately, as all those lovely plants start to bloom, they make our families’ seasonal allergies act up. These allergies can really put a damper on all our great spring family plans. Our children can get grumpy on outings with their watery eyes . We just want to sleep. It feels like the family is forced to stay inside! While we cannot cure our bouts with hay fever, there are some tricks for keeping the family as fresh as possible during pollen season:
