Parents vs. Trampoline

Posted on

When we moved to Florida a year ago we left some things from our previous life behind as it was just to difficult to move.  One of those things was our trampoline.  Both our girls have summer birthdays and both wanted another trampoline.  Carly’s birthday is first so I organized a surprise party for her birthday with all her friends.  Not only was her friends there to surprise her, but we also went ahead and surprised her with a new trampoline.  While she was inside with her friends hanging out and playing games, Craig and I decided we would try out the trampoline, parent style.  So here is our trampoline fun without the kids.  I’ve decided I’m getting a little too old to be hurled in the air.  But for the record, we both made it off the trampoline in each bounce.  I say success!
