Now you see it...


... now you don't...

... now you see it...

err, kind of...

... in pieces...
at our neighbors house...
... Yep, during our vacation, it seems our trampoline also decided to take a vacation...
... helped out by the tornado that swept through minnesota while we were gone.
... we got a call from one neighbor telling us that our trampoline was no more... getting demolished in the huge storm.
... some other sweet neighbors gathered all the pieces and had them sitting on their back porch, and when we came back, we found every piece except for one spring...
can you believe it?
yea, me neither!
Some pieces had been put through the ringer, and we scouted out a welding guy who did a little magic melding and put some of the pieces back together,
... and after a lotta gathering and jerry-rigging (literally!)...
... and self proclaimed 'parents of the year' awarding...

The tramp is BACK in action!!!
much to the joy of the children.

and the parents.

Unbelievable. You know how to use it up, wear it out, and put back together so you don't have to go without!
