I think the menu is abit on the large side. Since the font isnt exactly 'interesting', Arial or whatever you've got there, I think there should be less emphasis on it (i.e. making it smaller = good).
As well, I think that if you connected the inner rectangles the whole design would improve. That white border inbetween makes it look like less of a design and more of a chart.
That's my two cents, take it or leave it

I don't mind the big buttons. You kind of cannot NOT notice them :-) I think they stand out from all the other images and they scream right at you to "CLICK ME"! I might try changing the font to the "JUMPING" font that you used in the logo maybe...?
I think I'd give it an 8.t

I also wanted to know where you got that picture. Is it a purchased stock photo you were asked to use? If not I would consider finding one with more sun in it, or I guess maybe editing this photo to have a sun.
Overall if I were to grade it I would give it a 7.5, just because there are still a few things that kinda bug me about this one. Like the font and the white border inbetween the 3 inner rectangles.
I think the drop shadow effect on the menu also makes the whole page look like maybe a chart or something, or a newspaper ad. I mostly see drop shadow in realism based sites. This one seems to be more design oriented and I'm not sure if it quite fits.
Again, though, I do like the majority of this site. Its quite appealing to the eye.

Now that I look at that image, I am curious if the kid is screaming because he is having fun jumping, or is he screaming because he is headed towards the spikes... :-))

But overall, i like your design

But it brings up a good point what was said, maybe you should try (to atleast) shave off the pointy edges of the fence.
The site i think its great. Placement is very good and besides all, it's attractive. As long as your client is happy right? The only thing I'd say has already been mentioned. Not enough warm colors to go with "fun in the sun" slogan. But that's just me. Seems like a nice site.
