20130408-165533.jpgThere is something about playing with a hoop that automatically makes you very approachable. People are always curious to know more about the “magic” they are seeing happen.

This came in handy for me this weekend during our first trip to the Wisconsin Dells with the whole Hurley family. My 2-1/2 year-old niece was being very shy until I broke out my hoop. With a just little coaxing I had her jumping around and playing with me. I was her new best friend all weekend, which was pretty special since I only get to see her a few times a year.
