No, I am not talking about that girl in High School that stole my boyfriend.
G-mom (UJ's mom) and GrandPat bought the girls a new trampoline, (or JUMPoline as Carly called it when she was little) this weekend.
G-mom called and said she, UJ and the girls had talked about picking it up this weekend so I called Walmart to make sure they were in stock. They were in stock and off I went.......after checking with Papa, my dad, to ask him to help me put it together.
Bought it with no incident. That was the easy part.
The next 3 hours were a blur of metal pieces, springs and netting. We are not stupid people, but it took us a long time to put that thing together! (When all else fails, read instructions) We perservered, mainly due to three little girls coming out of or around the house saying, "Is it ready yet? Is it ready yet?" and we got it, and the netting frame up last night and my cousin, Renita came and helped me get the netting up. She is a bit taller than me and had put one together previously, otherwise I was going to have to call on my SIL Andi to help me tomorrow. :o)
If anyone of you purchase a trampoline, and there is a $50 charge to have it assembled for you, it is TOTALLY worth it. My hands, arms and back are sore today from all that pushing and pulling, straining and groaning. I am chock full of Naproxen today.
We had fun jumping on it all afternoon and it will be great exercise for the girls.
I wonder if Uncle Joe will jump on it too??
