We Play - Trampoline

We have had a little winter sun a couple of days this week, which has led to the enthusiastic re-embrace of the trampoline.

Trampolines are for bouncing, for jumping, for doing tricks.

Trampolines are for playing sister-sardines and laughing hilariously with the toddler as she scoots around the mat, giggling.

Trampolines are for lying on our backs and looking at the clouds, making patterns in them.

Trampolines are for sharing and for joy.


  1. Oh, that takes me back to when my youngest was a toddler and used to get bounced all over the place on the trampoline by his big brother. So much fun!

  2. :) Makes me smile just to see their happy faces :)

  3. These photos remind me of our own boys, during the warmer months. Even on school days, Karen and I will get up and find the boys on the trampoline before school, before breakfast, before getting in their uniforms. They are in their PJ's having a blast on the tramp. One of the best Xmas presents ever. It never seems to lose their interest.

  4. Hasn't the sun been wonderful? Wonder where it went today??

    We never had a trampoline, but I always loved it when I visited friends who had one. Princess doesn't have one either, but she loves going to her "big" friends houses and having a jump with them, or going to the play centre and practicing her star jumps.

    I was going to ask if someone was still wearing their jammies?? Even better fun! :)

  5. Oh, I wish we had more flat ground for one of those trampolines :( We have one of those old rectangle ones dug into the ground which the kids still love, but not always the safest!!

  7. Trampoline fun looks great! We don't have a trampoline, but we have a place called Bounce U that has open playtime for all of their bouncy houses. we actually went there this morning and had a great time!
    Neat blog...will have to pop back and read some more of your recent posts.
