I'm in love!

I sat here today, at this computer, watching my two middle children having a ball on the trampoline. Giggling, laughing, screaming with joy (well, mostly). Then when Hadland came home from school, I mentioned that he could go jump if he wanted to. He did! And William joined him for a long time. I love having a trampoline in my backyard. My kids aren't whining to be glued to the boob tube. They are outside, having a great time together. And no runs to the ER...yet. Tonight, after all the kids were in bed, I jumped for about 10 minutes. Don't worry, no flips for this muchacha! What fun. I jumped in the chilly night air, looking up at Mt. Timpanogos with its fresh blanket of snow. Not bad, eh? Almost makes you want to live here.

Almost.

Yah,NOT QUITE!
I loved having a trampoline too. I just haven't found the time and money to get another one since we moved. My kids are excited to go visit grandma and grandpa(who kept our trampoline when we moved).

I loved having a trapoline too. We actually put it in the ground so we did have to have a net. I have to say it was so nice just walking out the back door and jumping right on the tramp.

this summer we are putting a new one in our new house. :)

Don't you just love it when you kids are having fun, not fighting and not glued to the TV. :)
