Out with the old, in with the new

When your trampoline looks like this, it’s probably time to get a new one.


After purchasing the new trampoline, the first step is to take the old one down as much as possible. Secondly, you should get all the pieces out of the new one and put them together. If your uncles who aren’t so technically inclined are helping you, it might be more of a complicated process than you think. But, never fear, it’ll still get done, especially when little girls get stubborn/insistent about it and threaten to do it themselves.


It might even be a family effort and your aunt will run around the trampoline strong arming the springs in. It’s harder than it looks! But luckily there’s a tool that makes the process a little easier. Yes, I realize these pictures don’t actually show her doing it, but she was the main one who did. I sure wish I’d capture it on film, but, alas, I did not.


And if the process makes you a little crazy, well, that’s just to be expected.


Once it’s finished, everyone should climb on and bounce like crazy. It doesn’t matter if the old trampoline was only cool occasionally. The new one is so much better!


Then you have the adult trampoline


and the kid one.


Aren’t new toys great? Smile

I do love the trampoline. I usually got to put it up and take it down every season. That's probably where all my super-human strength comes from :0)
