Jump & Joy amps up the action at any kid's party with inflatable bounce houses and slides. Partygoers leap around inside bounce houses printed with popular characters from movies, tv, and Newsweek, and kids can also splash down thrilling slides. All inflatables have been designed with extensive safety features, such as ramps and screen mesh, and they're disinfected after every rental. Staff also creates themed packages that not only include a bounce-house rental, but also a party attendant, sweet treats, music, and decorations.
A charter member of the MLS, the San Jose Earthquakes played their first four seasons as the Clash before claiming the MLS Cup in 2001 and 2003. Though the team moved to Houston in '05, the franchise was reinstated in '08, bringing professional soccer back to the Bay Area. Buck Shaw Stadium serves as the team's current home, though a new stadium will shoot skyward in 2014, complete with luxury suites for fans and exhausted referees alike.
Beyond Paradise Nursery spreads scores of succulents, shrubs, flowers, palm trees, and other seasonal plants across its spacious 3-acre facility.

Encore azaleas ($25 for a 3-gal.) turn their vibrant faces toward driveways and porches; the blossoms of Little John bottlebrushes ($20 for a 3-gal.) blow in the breeze like miniature pom-poms. During the holiday season, a variety of poinsettias will also be available.
