We never thought we'd get this for our littles: #1

Exhibit #1:

Last summer, after much... much thinking, and a good sale/coupon combo ;), we made the decision to get a trampoline for our little people! Who are we??

I was always so worried about them, thinking they were just a jumping trap for broken bones or injuries that I didn't want to see our littles endure.

After discussions about fun, good exercise, and being good for little ones who have been in orphanages/neglected as teenies/etc, I was swayed.

So we did it! Hubby put it together after the babies went to bed (as seen in first pic :)) and we surprised them with it the next morning for the boys' birthday. :) It was a couple more months until we got the enclosure up, but we love it. And they LOVE it.

The first jumps! Which needed to be documented in all forms: I am videoing this first in the bottom right pic ;)

There are SO many things you can do on a trampoline! 

Like...

...Chillin' with Grandma for a jump and a snack :)

...Sometimes it's good to have an apple snack after all of that jumping.

...Jumping no matter what season! They'll jump bundled in hats, jackets, and gloves. :)

They run out the door to our backyard directly to it and jump, play, and jump on it pretty much every. single. day. :) They make up games together. They crack up. They try all sorts of new moves. Moves that scare Mommy and Daddy. Hubby jumps with them and can bounce them extra high ;).

Who knew a trampoline had so many fun uses. :)

Who knew we'd ever have a trampoline! ;)

This is one of our: Never thought we'd get. Do you have any Never-thought-we'd-gets??

I have such good memories of the trampoline from my childhood. It looks like they will as well.

I really, really want to get a trampoline for our boys! They'd love it {and if I'm being completely honest, I'd love it, too!}. My husband doesn't want to yet, so for now, I'll keep hoping!

so fun! we had a trampoline when I was growing up and we had so much fun on it now!

Not sure if I will get one for our kiddos in the future...being in the insurance business, I kinda get freaked out by the idea! ha!

So fun!! Our neighbors have one and their kids love it!

I always wanted one when I was little!

Soo cute. I'm the same, I can't imagine getting one, but sometimes, I wish they had something they could run outside and jump their little hearts out.

It's nice to see the novelty hasn't worn off.
