Last Thursday, a special box arrived at the house. Just in time to beat Irene.
Mike and I have been saving pennies and dimes and talking about some exciting things for the girls.
This jumper was one of them.
Mike scoured the Internet looking for deals, sales, and the "just right" price. It was a long process and we both learned how crazy expensive these jumpers can be. We also learned that there are some pretty big ones out there too that go for as much as $1200....crazy huh?!?
The girls were hesitant at first...Hope clung to the edge until she trusted herself to let go. After that, they were like monkeys at the zoo. Bouncing off the walls and each other.
It took them maybe all but a minute or two to learn how to make way down the slide. I was so proud!
This is by far the coolest picture I've ever taken. My personal opinion of course and I'm VERY far from having any professional photography training and all.
My Moma heart fluttered when I saw it...if you've read this blog long enough, you'll understand.
They had so much fun. I highly suggest if you're looking for an activity to burn energy, this is it!
Save and look and you will find.
Little Miss Irene fluttered by us with offerings of an inch of rain and some thunderstorm style clouds and wind. Nothing major. It made for some really nice weather. The coolness was like a hint of fall air and I was totally accepting it. Cool enough to go out and pick weeds mid-day...so nice.
The sky was amazing! It had this beautiful orange tint that fit perfectly in between the swirly hurricane clouds.
How was your weekend?
Can you believe it's almost September?!?!?!
