The Allergy Brothers conveniently only have a few days between their birthdays, and just less than two years between their ages. This means they are cursed to have shared birthday parties forever! Luckily, they get on very well and have shared friends and interests.
This year the boys’ party was at Jungle Adventure in Stanway, Colchester. This is our favourite soft play centre. It’s light, clean, and well-maintained. There is a wide range of equipment so it’s very accessible. Our only complaints are that the music can be too loud, especially if you sit at the sides, and that the Allergy Brothers might be aging out of Jungle Adventure. Is it too much to ask for the Jungle Adventure team to open a centre for older children too?!
Birthday parties can be a bit sad for us, because everyone, except the birthday boys, can eat the party food. The Allergy Brothers usually have to bring a packed lunch. We were really pleased that the Jungle Adventure staff worked so hard to cater for them. The Allergy Brothers each had a platter of ham and vegetable batons, with crisps and tortilla chips. For dessert, they each had a bowl of fresh fruit.
Finally, we want to thank unflappable party host, Teni, who was so calm and efficient.
The Allergy Brothers definitely had a happy birthday party.
