I’ve shared here that we recently got the kids a trampoline, after much reluctance on my part. I’ve been paranoid for years about my kids falling off of one but more and more, they were visiting their friends houses who happened to have trampolines and I guess I felt that, if they were going to bounce, they may as well bounce under my watchful eye! Or something like that…
So far, it’s been a great summer-fun experience and the kids are absolutely loving it. They’ve also begged my husband and I to jump with them which, surprising to me, has brought us closer as a family. Odd, right? The thing is, the backyard is more of a “play area for them, relaxing area for mom” kind of place. I’m happy to sit on my deck with a cup of coffee and watch them play but now, we’ve had some great evenings in the yard where mom and dad can both get in some quality time with the kids and the trampoline has been a part of that.
I took these first two shots the other day, practicing using the settings on my DSLR camera, and my son took the last shot himself. Sometimes it’s fun just to be silly with the kids, even if I tire out long before they do! The good news here is that my coffee generally stays warm waiting for me in this weather.
