Boing!

This is probably one of the best investments we've made - Kennedy's trampoline. I know they sometimes have a bad rap but if used properly with the safety netting and supervision and following the rules, I think they're great. Plus, they are great exercise (trust me, I've been on it and your heart rate definitely goes up after a few jumps!). She'd been asking for one since last year when she tried it up at my cousin Sherri's house at our family's annual 'Estrofest' - Graeme named it the Estrofest because it's a three-day thing each August where the females from my mom's side of the family all gather up in northern New Brunswick at my cousin Sherri's place. We are actually heading up there tomorrow morning for Estrofest so we'll be away from the computer for a bit.

Anyway, Sherri had a trampoline, she tried it and loved it and has been asking for one since so when they went on sale, we bought her one and she's been jumping ever since. She goes out in the morning in her jammies and gets in and sometimes (like the video below), she does it in the evening with her jammies on. She is actually pretending she's hosting a show during this jumping segment, thus the "Hi, this is Kennedy Weir and welcome to my house" and what not throughout the jumping. She loves the whole butt-feet jump combo; it's her favourite so far...

This video of Kennedy makes me so happy! Vivian was happily distracted by it as I watched while feeding her one handed!

Have fun at Estrofest!

Have a great time and yes trampolines are great fun.
Lucky for me my knees will fall off if I try to get on one. So no jumping for me!
