Hey we got a trampoline!

So as a joint birthday present for all three kids, we got a trampoline for the backyard. We all love it. Yes, mom and dad jump too! We got a crazy new fangled state of the art springfree trampoline that is quiet and safe and fun. It just has flexing fiberglass rods, no springs, but feels just the same.

Yes, the trampoline is up in the flower bed because I dont want to have to move it every time I mow the lawn, and that part of the bed needed relandscaping anyway :) And no I havent finished putting gravel on the weedblocker because I am lazy.

Mike can jump with the kids and if you get the timing just right he can nearly fling them out of the top. It's funny.

The kids called me out to the trampoline yesterday and told me I needed to take a picture of this bug. So anyway...
Here is the walking stick that was climbing their trampoline.

We're just going to assume that bug isn't really bigger than Loren.

Hehe. I had another picture where the bug was actually in focus instead of the net, but there werent kids in the background and I thought this one was funnier. (though from a technical standpoint the other one was better)

Man, I can't wait to come play at your house. I'll have to wait 6 months after my knee surgery to jump, but I'm sure the girls would have fun jumping.

AWESOME!!! Do you get many of those around your area?

We see them fairly often, once every few weeks or so. It's not like they're crawling all over the place, but they're around. I've seen a few varieties of walking stick, some look even more "stick" like than this one with more of a bark look.
