Yuen Lui Studio, a family-owned photography business specializing in individual and family portraits and wedding photography, creates visual heirlooms in a tradition of quality it has upheld since 1947. With several area studios available, each boasts a multitude of backdrop options for portraiture sessions, or photographers may take sessions outdoors to add natural scenery to the frame. Wedding and engagement shots come to life under the careful eyes of each photographer as they seize rare moments and trap them in frames to be displayed like trophies from a hunt. High-school, child, baby, and family portraits keep precious memories locked in time for clients, who can peruse an online gallery of their images after their session.

If it has information on it, American Shredding's licensed, insured, and bonded staff probably can destroy it. The paper pros began shredding for IBM in 1982, and to this date still boast a record of never compromising or losing a piece of information. In addition to mobile and offsite paper shredding, they can pulverize other materials such as plastic, data tapes, and retail products. They also can destroy hard drives with a process that complies with Department of Defense and NSA regulations, instead of just dumping them into a perfectly good pot of beef stew. With a commitment to the environment, American Shredding recycles every piece of paper, metal, and plastic that it destroys.

With more than 20 years of experience in the inflatable entertainment industry, Merry Makers provides hours of jumpable delight to energetic juveniles and the parents who want to tire them out before beer-thirty. Proportioned for standard toy-humans ages 12 and younger, and weighing less than 150 pounds, the Jumparoo Bounce House (a value of $179 for up to seven-hour rental) requires a 20'x20'x13'–20' space in which to nestle, and one electrical outlet within 70 feet to power the inflation station. These bright, colorful bastions of bounceability are available in more than 50 themes, such as castle, princess castle, and the castle formerly known as Prince castle. Treat your tot to a big top bouncer for a lively, circus-themed bash, or rent a pneumatic starship on July 20 to celebrate the 41-year anniversary of the Apollo moon landing or the 90-year pre-versary of humanity's first contact with Vulcans. Most bounce houses come with a roof to shield gravity challengers from sun and rain, allowing free-floating friends to jump their way to bedtime come rain, shine, or plague of fun-devouring locust.

Air makes everything better—including balloons, wind instruments, and wet clothing—and inflatable playgrounds are no exception; according to Pump It Up, air is essential for a successful rowdy romp. During three fun-filled Pre-K pop-in playtime sessions ( $7 per session plus tax), children ages 2–6 can leap around gargantuan air-filled bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like legless snakes through an air-filled obstacle course, completely losing themselves in a world of multi-colored inflatamania. Pump It Up’s indoor air arena, featuring inflatable jumpers, is climate controlled and cleanly maintained according to rigorous guidelines by a team of well-trained staff. Parents bounce for free, so childless adults who want to play will need to borrow their neighbor’s kid or just win one by collecting enough cereal-box tops.
