Mike and Elaine are moving and since we are the only kids around that don't have a trampoline they gave us theirs. The kids LOVE it! They have been on it everyday. We have Shayne's life guard chair sitting next to it so they can use it for a ladder to get on and off but it ended up being a platform to jump off of. We'll be lucky if no one gets hurt but at least they'll have fun doing it!
