Boston Marathon Bombings

For all the innocent victims involved with the Boston Marathon bombings, all of us at Bouncing Buddies wanted to say, we’re praying for you. We will continue to pray for you. As investigators try to piece everything together, we will be praying. As people recover, we will be praying. As the city heals, we will be praying.

Praying For Boston

We Are Praying

It was just a few months ago that we wrote a similar blog for the victim’s of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting. In this time in our nation’s history, when there’s a new tragedy seemingly every week, it’s easy to get discouraged.

But, what I love so much about this country, is that when tragedy strikes, we fight back. For this brief period of time, we are no longer Republicans and Democrats. We are all Americans, staying strong for a common purpose. Instead of dwelling on all the negative that could come out of this mess, I will choose to dwell on the positive. Thank you to all the bystanders and first responders who ran in, even as bombs continued to go off. Thank you for showing the world what America is really all about. We may get kicked, but we will get back up and continue to stand strong. As a party rental company, a company that is dedicated to delivering happy memories, it is a mystery as to why someone would choose to conduct such a horrendous act on a day of celebration. No matter the reason, motive, or cause, we will continue to stand in unity as we pray for Boston!

Why I Love April Fool’s Day

It’s finally here. One of my favorite days of the year. This year is a bonus year, because April Fool’s Day happens to fall only one day after my other favorite day of the year. Easter and April Fool’s Day together?!? It’s like Christmas all over again.

April Fools

I’m not quite sure why, but I’ve always loved April Fool’s Day. There’s something about playing harmless pranks (harmless is the keyword here) on my friends, family, and colleagues, and expecting a few pranks in return. Like a couple of years ago, when my coworker closed the only two doors that led to a particular part of the office, and placed signs on each door that read “Please Use Other Door”. We watched in wonder as one person after another read each sign, and went back and forth, not knowing how to get in.

Or the time that I switched some of my co-worker’s keyboard keys, knowing that he couldn’t type without looking at the keyboard. The look of frustration on his face was great!

Or maybe I enjoy it for the ketchup filled “jelly doughnut” that my daughter ate with a puzzled look on her face. She made it through the whole thing but couldn’t understand why it didn’t taste as good as it normally does. Or perhaps the time we placed my son’s box spring on top of his mattress and waited for him to jump into bed.

There are so many reasons to love April Fool’s Day. Mostly, I think I like it because for just one day, it’s socially acceptable to be unacceptable. See, as adults, we often take ourselves too seriously. Every once in a while, it’s good to let go and have a little fun. After all, there’s enough seriousness floating around these days. This year, let loose and have a little fun!

Of course, if you’re looking for some serious party rentals in Lafayette that are no laughing matter, look no further than Bouncing Buddies!

History on Valentine’s Day


There are many different legends as to how Valentine’s Day originated. It is all based around St. Valentine. One legend says that Valentine was a priest who served in the third century in Rome. It all started when the Emperor, Claudius II decided that young single men made better soldiers, rather than the married men with wives and a family. He then outlawed marriage for young men. When Valentine heard this injustice and decree order, he married young men in secret. Claudius later found out about what Valentine was doing and ordered that he be put to death. Valentine was executed on February 14 around the year 278.

Another legend is that Valentine was in prison and he fell in love with a young girl. She was possibly Valentine’s jailers’ daughter. She visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that Valentine wrote her a letter signed “From your Valentine.” That is an expression still used today. The truth behind what actually happened to Valentine is still a mystery that we will probably never find out for sure. Although we don’t know the truth about the Valentine legends, the stories emphasize his appeal as a sympathetic, romantic and heroic figure!

By the Middle Ages, Valentine became one of the most popular Saints in England and France. Today, February 14, Valentine’s Day, candy, flowers, and gifts are exchanged between loved ones. At the end of the 5th century, around 200 years after Valentine’s death, Pope Gelasius declared February 14th St. Valentine’s Day. Written Valentine’s didn’t appear until the 1400’s. The oldest known Valentine still in existence today, was a poem written by Charles, Duke of New Orleans, to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London followed his capture at the Battle of Agincourt in the year 1415. Valentine’s Day symbols used today are hearts, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Cupid was the Greek god of desire, erotic, love and affection. Valentine’s Day is still very popular today just as it was in the 15th century.

Happy Valentine’s Day From Bouncing Buddies

Okay, this recipe is super simple, yet super delicious. It’s a great way to give the kids a healthy Valentine’s Day snack this afternoon, and it may even become a family favorite!

Raspberry Rockets
by Cindy


  • 20 raspberries (or more depending on how many servings you’d like to make)
  • 20 white chocolate chips (again, you can use more if you’re making more than the suggested two servings)


Wash the raspberries by holding them under gently running water or submerging in a bowl of water and agitating gently. Allow the raspberries to air-dry by simply putting them on a towel. Once dry, insert one chip into each berry with flat side of the chip facing you. Serve.

That’s it. Like I said, it’s extremely simple, but when you’re a mom on the go, sometimes you need simple. I tried it, and rest assured, it truly is delicious. Simple, sweet, creamy, with a little tart. You can’t go wrong with this simple snack.

From all of us at Bouncing Buddies, Happy Valentine’s Day!
