Trampoline fun!

 In early October when Emerson and I went to visit Benjamin and William, the trampoline was something all three of my little men wanted to jump on.  William was the initiator.  He loves to jump!
 The boys want me on the trampoline, but not necessarily jumping!  I think I'm just too big and it's too much bounce?  I'm not sure.
 We have all kinds of games to play.  Here, I was the monster, trying to get them as they ran back and forth across.  Emerson decided if you were touching the net, you were "safe"! We also played 'Red Light, Green Light."

 Emerson and Benjamin love to wrestle on the trampoline...sometimes they get a bit rough for me.  But they laugh and laugh ... sometimes a few tears surface, but they bounce back quickly and start to wrestle again.  I'm sure it won't be long before there'll be a third wrestler in the mix. 

 Sometimes I would get tackled...I'm not sure how my glasses survived...I finally had to take them off!

 After knocking me down, the boys were there to help me up!
 I used to get so nervous when they jumped, but that was before they got this net that goes around the edge...and no one falls off the trampoline! 

 William wanted to swing awhile after we abandoned the trampoline...He wanted to be pushed, "HIGH"

THIS...reminds me of my younger days...swinging and holding my head way back as I was swinging.

We were back on the trampoline a bit later...and for some reason, William wasn't on it, just Benjamin, Emerson, and I.  I was sitting down resting, and they sat down with me.  I asked some question, don't even remember what it was, but I told them to "raise your hand if..."... well, that started what they called 'a game'...the 'raise your hand if' game.  At first, I was the only one saying, "Raise your hand if...you love books, etc!"  They'd quickly raise their hands...then they started wanting a turn to say, 'raise your hand if...."...

Well, the longer we played this game, the sillier they became.  It was great.  It ended up with things like, "Raise your hand if you like to punch yourself in the  nose," and then they'd both crack up laughing. 

This is definitely fun...hanging out with these little men, jumping on the trampoline, playing games...and laughing!
