up and down and up and down

the week before school got out i found a righteous deal on the one thing every adult wishes they’d had as a kid. (i could be projecting what i wanted on to every other adult in the world, but i don’t think so.) i bought a used new-to-us trampoline! which involved the man making a trip to the american consulate (cuz i bought it from a consulate family) to disassemble it. just so happens the grounds of the consulate are a no picture zone, and since they took the camera (and his cell phone) away from michael when he entered the compound we’re such great American citizens we’ve got no before-michael-put-a-finger on it pictures.

but we do have pictures of the putting back together of the trampoline.


the beginning of a man trap – ha, ha. i crack myself up.


up until now it was easy going. but the actual trampoline part. hard work.


i’m not exactly sure why i was on the trampoline, but this is a picture of the man and #1
encouraging me to dismount the trampoline by doing a forward flip. it didn’t work so well.

this is as forward as my flip got.


the safety net. which, on his very first jump, #1 managed to slightly destroy.

the kids and a few friends wasted no time at all breaking it in.
