SUNDAY FUN DAY- LADIES SELF DEFENSE CLASS
This past Sunday we had the chance to meet with Marko Galbreath owner of T4Tactics. Marko is a retired police of 22 years, swat team member, commander of hostage negotiation, highly trained active shooter tactics trainer, self defense tactics and the list could go on and on. We partnered up with Marko to learn self defense moves to help protect ourselves if we were ever in a harmful situation. The beginning of the class was presentation slides explaining the different predator types. By knowing your predator you have a better chance of knowing how to protect yourself. He also taught us to be very vigilant while in public and to never get in the same routine everyday. We then jumped into the physical protection portion of the class. Marko showed us simple techniques that would help us to get out of a choke hold or remove a weapon from the predators hands. The techniques were very simple and easy to learn. I am so glad that we were able to take this class and learn how to protect ourselves if ever in danger.
I highly recommend this class to all ladies. A few hours and simple techniques could possibly save your life or someone you love. Marko also specializes in Gun safety, concealed permits and much more. Check out his website to see all he has to offer to Lynchburg.
SUNDAY FUN DAY AT PUTT-PUTT FUN CENTER
We were able to dry off some while waiting in line to ride the Go-Karts. Aiden was staring down Number 20 the entire way through the line. Luckily that is the one we ended up with. He was not impressed with my driving skills as little kids were passing us on both sides. He made sure I knew that I could never be a race car driver! They offer single and double Go-Karts. After we got done "Losing" or "Coming in Last" as Aiden said, we stopped by the batting cages and watched some of the local baseball teams hit. Inside they offer two game rooms, spin zone bumper cars, Laser tag, food, drinks, ice cream and party rooms. We headed to the game room and loaded our card with $20. I do like the way they set up the cards and tickets. For each game you slide your prepaid card and tickets automatically load to your card. We played basketball, skee ball, air hockey, hunting, dinosaur games, baseball toss and so many more. We had a great time at Putt Putt Fun Center. They have so many attractions to offer and it is a safe and fun environment for kids and families. They have daily specials and promotions. Check out their website Here to see their times and pricing. I would recommend Putt Putt to everyone. They have something fun for all ages!

Our weekend was crazy busy!! I am not sure about everyone else but this time of year is always busy for our family. Saturday was spent at Fall vendor events and errands in the evening. Saturday night we tried to go see what "Jump Lynchburg" was all about but they were on a 2 hour wait. So we decided to purchase tickets for Sunday at 12 pm and have our time locked in!
Sunday morning came and Aiden was so excited to go to the trampoline park. The trampoline park opened November 4, 2016. It has over 60 trampolines in 12,000 sq ft area. As we learned Saturday night, it is best to go online and fill out your waiver and set a time to come in and jump.
When we arrived we were able to sign straight in, grab the special jumping socks and head to the trampolines! At first sight, it is very vibrant, fun and welcoming. Aiden ran straight to the foam pit! He ran jumped on the trampoline into the air and in a foam pit. From there we "ran" to the basketball courts. At the basketball court there are individual courts, Aiden bounced and shot hoops for a good ten minutes. We ended our visit at the big trampolines where even the walls are trampolines.
We had a blast at the trampoline park! They have a dodgeball court, jousting area, foam pit, basketball area and general area. There are different time frames to play ranging from 30 minutes to 2 hours. We will definitely be coming back to play more! Lynchburg Jump is definitely a great addition to our area!

I am a wife, mom of 4 kids, sister, daughter and friend. You will normally find me with my kids, family or girlfriends out and about getting into something around town! I love hosting dinners, parties, networking events or meet ups. I love chocolate covered strawberries….It’s strawberries so it has to be healthy for you:). I love fall time, anything that sparkles, christmas movies, hot chocolate, pinterest, smell of freshly cut grass, my MONAT haircare, night-time city lights, chocolate, panera bread coffee and pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. Most of all, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, making memories and having a good laugh. I can’t wait to meet all of you at the upcoming events!!
