Play Date at Stomping Grounds Playland {Recap}

Please Note :: This event was made possible by all of our wonderful event sponsors. Thank you to Stomping Grounds Playland for hosting such an incredible event and providing such delicious refreshments, and a special thanks to our sweet friend Momma’s Gonna SNAP Photography for capturing the morning with such ease and beauty too.

Earlier this month, we hosted our very fist play date…and we have to say, it was a raving success!  Nearly 50 little ones and their sweet mamas all gathered together at Stomping Grounds Playland for a morning packed with fun.

Stomping Grounds Play Date 1

From the moment our guests walked in, they were more than welcomed and made to feel at ease by the awesome staff at Stomping Grounds Playland.  We love, love, love their unique stamping system that matches adults to kiddos and vice versa – allowing each of us moms to actually sit down and relax knowing that our kiddos are safe and secure behind the locked door that enters into the play area.  And once inside, the sky roof is truly the limit!

With tunnels circling above head and side-by-side slides racing down, the older kiddos LOVED crawling around and exploring all that the main play area at Stomping Grounds Playland has to offer.  We would say that they could even get lost up there with so many different obstacles and areas to check out, but somehow…they always managed to find their way back down to check in with us moms before racing back in to play some more.

And the little ones?  They did not skip a beat on the toddler play area either!  With tons of floor mats and wedges lining the floor and a tot-sized play structure just their size, they were able to toddle/crawl and play with new friends while moms could keep a watchful eye close by.  So perfect for building that independence and learning to play with others!

This fun and exciting environment definitely held the attention of all of our kiddos – which allowed for us moms to get some much needed quality time to mix, mingle, and get to know one another!  After months of getting to know each other online, it was so much fun being able to get offline and match those tiny social media profile pics to real life people.  Stories were swapped, laughs were shared, and new friendships were built.  {HMB Founder Confession :: I may or may not have shed a tear looking around at so many mamas coming together to share in this beautiful journey of motherhood.  It was a pretty special moment for me!}

After burning off lots of energy, all of the little ones were in need of a yummy snack…and the moms were in need of a soda/coffee refuel too!  Thankfully, there is a fabulous cafe right inside of Stomping Grounds Playland packed with delicious options.  {We are talking chicken florentine paninis, chai tea frappes, and – CHEESECAKE!  Yeah, definitely not what you would expect to find!}

The threat of nap time may have brought our play date to a close, but we know the fun is going to last much longer for so many of the mamas in attendance!  As everyone was leaving, we heard talks of future birthday parties being hosted at Stomping Grounds Playland and even a few photo sessions being lined up with our photography sponsor Momma’s Gonna SNAP.  Which by the way, have you seen her Facebook page?  You must!

Kelly D
Kelly is the founder of Houston Moms Blog and has lived in this beautiful city nearly all of her life. She has a degree in education from Texas State University and was honored to teach special education for eight years to some of the cutest little kiddos you could ever meet. While teaching, Kelly met Cody – a tall drink of water and country boy to the core – and together, they fell in love, got married, and decided to start a family. In March 2011, they welcomed Hayes into the world, a silly but smart little boy with a story you have to read to believe. And in April 2013, their family was complete with the addition of Hadley, a super gregarious and oh-so-cute baby girl. Now, Kelly devotes her days to caring for her own little ones…and would not trade this new job of hers for the world! In her not-so-spare time, Kelly loves meeting up with her girlfriends for margaritas, failing miserably at Pinterest projects, and exploring this big old city with her two favorite little side-kicks in tow.
