Our trampoline

My fantastic parents got me the kids a trampoline for Christmas. It is one of those awesome spring free ones. It was assembled late on Christmas night with mum and dad, my sister and Raff and I. And some eggnog. And Baileys. It wasn't too bad as far as the assembly of these things go. I had hold of the instruction book, so we knew we were in good hands.

The kids LOVE it. The one-kid-at-a-time rule lasted about 27 seconds. They use it for so many things in so many different ways. It is great for laying on and reading, fantastic for rough housing, brilliant for tea parties and picnics, ideal for secret meetings. Lucy, at just 2 years old, would be on there 24/7. This morning she was on it, naked, at 7am.
Charlotte can do somersaults on it and Ella is getting it together enough to be able to bounce herself well.

They play a game where two of them curl up in a ball laying on the tramp mat and the other one jumps up and down yelling something like 'crack the egg, crack the egg!' the first one to 'uncurl' loses.
 I managed to catch a semi decent shot of them all with static hair. Then Lucy touched me - ouch!




I have enjoyed jumping on it in the evenings. It is much fun looking over all the neighbours fences!

Trampoline manufacturers do not recommend more than one person on a trampoline at a time. That being said, my kids often have as many as five or six children on our 14' trampoline.
