Those are great pictures!! My children loved their trampoline.......LOL So did our Goat!!!! He would jump off the lower peak of the barn onto the trampoline with the kids.. LOL He would then enjoy the jumping as they did! You had to take him off physically to get him down he loved it. Some days I would look out the window and he would be out there jumping by himself, then the next time I look he would be out cold with the sun beating down on that black hot mat...curled up and sound asleep! He was an odd goat! Fonzie...LOL

i've decided that i really like the work boingy... my friend kimmie had a trampoline and we used to have sleepovers on it-weather permitting. blankets don't work well on those... you just slide to the middle

We had enough trees around that the trampoline did not get the sun until around noon!

I wish I'd seen the goat on a boingoline (that's my new name for a trampoline) :D

The kids have got a veritable playground in the garden now. They've got 2 single swings, a double swing, slide & the boingoline.

I'm fine, thank you, and I hope you are also.

Yeah, the brats have been having great fun on it. Sandra tried it out too & I've got a nice embarrassing video of her landing on her back with her legs in the air (nothing unusual there then!)  :D

LOL LOL.. I am glad you are well! LOL humor in tact I see! LOL

Yes, I got on the trampoline, and my children said, "mom you have to jump!" I said,
"I am jumping." They said, "but your feet aren't leaving the surface!" I said, "I am jumping as High as I can!" The surface was not cooperating.. LOL I was 351 lbs and couldn't get clearance from the tower that I needed to take off! LOL.. I can now clear ground level 116 lbs down and almost two years later.. LOL!
