HAPPY BIRTHDAY
AUNA & JACOB!
We had so much fun celebrating your 11th birthday here at Neutral Grounds!
Check out our latest party review:

"Oh my gosh- that was most likely the best birthday party the kids have ever had! The adults also enjoyed it by watching the kids have so much fun. Coach Bobby is amazing... I did almost nothing which is very unusual for me. Lillian was still talking about it for 2 days and from what her friends’ parents told me, their kids talked about it afterwards too! Thank you so much!"--Michelle M.
Our PNO Glow Party was SO MUCH FUN! The kids lit up the night with the help of Coach Bobby and Coach Charlie. Thank you to all who came out for a fun night. Stay tuned for info on our next Parents' Night Out event!
