We did it!!!

We actually bought a trampoline and it is up and operating!!! The kids are always wanting to go on it and I just LOVE that! We put it up after we went to Great America last Thursday and Friday morning the kids were up early and out on it jumping away. And every morning except for today they have gotten up, got dressed, ate breakfast and then outside to jump. Today they couldn't because we had church but as soon as we got home they were out there! I think it is the best purchase we have made for the kids to date. And I like that they are getting exercise and NOT sitting in front of the tv or playing video games.

So I said we put it up after our day at Great America. We had gotten home around 9:30pm and decided that we put it up. It was so funny because we had to set up a flood light so that we could see what we were doing. It took us a little longer than it would of it had been in the daylight because we had to almost take it all apart to fix a mistake that we had made because of the darkness. We had fun bonding while putting it up and we got to be the first to JUMP! At 11pm we were like two little kids jumping away on the trampoline. I was sitting and let Jeff jump and he bounced me so high that I ended up standing. Needless to say, if you are thinking of getting one totally do it! We struggled with size for a while and ended up getting the bigger one...15ft!

That is so awesome! We were thinking of getting one, but then our neighbors got one and our kids have been playing with them. ;)
I love picturing you and your hubby jumping on it together late at night. So fun! :)

I'm so glad you got one! I may have to put it on our list for next year. :)

We got our trampoline when we moved into our house about 8 years ago, and we have loved that thing! However... it has been through so much weather and wear now, that I am thinking it may be time to replace it. I'm just waiting for somebody to go ripping straight through the middle of it one of these days. LOL.
