I fought and fought to get a trampoline. Steve was against it the whole time and he grew up with one. But as a child, I thought trampolines were the coolest thing and was insistent that we have one. So last spring we brought one home and life hasn’t been the same since. I understand many kids have a trampoline and some probably rarely use them.
But my kids are big fans. Never by themselves, but together that trampoline has magic powers. I love weeding my garden and looking over my shoulder to see them playing crack the egg (which of course at this age isn’t very dangerous), or running around playing tag. A lot of times in the afternoon, they can eat their afternoon snack on the trampoline which is quite the treat for them. And this is what I see…
It’s hard for me to see them as teenagers pushing the trampoline over to the house so they can jump off the roof, or picture the awful injury stories my orthopedic surgeon friend tells me. Because at this age, the trampoline is innocent. It’s just a place to share an afternoon snack!
I love that their shirts match! 🙂
So cute. You HAVE to ALWAYS have one. What would you do without it???
