Last Sunday I drove a 40 mile round trip to pick up a trampoline. A nice big 13ft trampoline. It was a bargain on eBay and I’d been looking for one for ages but did not want to spend alot.
I drove over in my little ford focus and we played a game of jigsaw in trying to fit in all in. But it did fit and I came home and built it with my mum and brothers girlfriend. Took us less than an hour which I was really impressed with!
Since then the boys have had a field day bouncing on it. I’ve been on it with them a lot and its been lovely watching youngest learn how to actually bounce. At the start of the week he was simply bending his knees a bit but not leaving the mat. Now he’s actually managing to jump up a little bit.
Eldest is loving it and I’ve taught him how to do seat drops on it.
I also discovered its a great form of entertainment that lasts at least half an hour at a time! The boys are constantly nagging me to go down to the garden so they can play again.
