For the last 5 hours of 2012 my family rented a gymnastics gym. When I heard what our plans were my first thoughts were, "meh, okay." Boy was I completely wrong in my passive thinking. We had a blast. My whole family was there, minus one, and we partied all night long. We had our own mini olympics, threw our bodies into the foam pit more times than I could possibly count, and finished the year off by dancing our hearts out on a giant mat in the dark to blasting music. To top it off, my brother and his wife had a surprise for us. As we were dancing with the lights dimmed, they came running in with armfuls of glow sticks and glow-balls. They probably had 50+ glow sticks. It was a near perfect night. I can't think of a better way to welcome the new year than happily dancing with my family.
