The wonderful thing about Tiggers....

We finally did it. We've been taking for years about buying a trampoline, and this time, we actually did it! This one came with the enclosure, so we were happy about that. Gotta love sales at Canadian Tire! :D

I didn't take pictures of all the assembly, but it wasn't that bad. It took about 2 hours to get it ready to bounce. We didn't have, (and didn't need!) the suggested 3 physically fit adults to get it all together. It was pretty easy. The enclosure was the most frustrating part.

Daddy had to try it out first, of course. ;)

Then, Michael got in on the action. It was so hilarious!! He was laughing so hard, he couldn't stay upright. :D

Then all the kids got to bounce. Michael learned quickly. ;)

The kids play this game they call 'popcorn', where one of them lays in a ball in the middle, and the others bounce around them, and try to get them to open up... like popcorn. Too funny!

Jeff got back in to teach them a few of his moves. :) That man can bounce!

They ended up spending two hours on the trampoline! Once we got them out, they starting complaining about sore legs... I guess so! They're already asking again to go out and bounce, so I'm guessing it's a hit.

The wonderful thing about tiggers
Is tiggers are wonderful things!
Their tops are made out of rubber;
Their bottoms are made out of springs!
They're bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy,
Fun! Fun! Fun! Fun! Fun!
But the most wonderful thing about tiggers is
I'm the only one!

Oh the wonderful thing about tiggers
Is tiggers are wonderful chaps!
They're loaded with vim and with vigor;
They love to leap in your laps!
They're jumpy, bumpy, clumpy, thumpy,
Fun! Fun! Fun! Fun! Fun!
But the most wonderful thing about tiggers is
I'm the only one!

Tiggers are cuddly fellas.
Tiggers are awfully sweet.
Ev'ryone else is jealous.
That's why I repeat and repeat:

The wonderful thing about tiggers
Is tiggers are wonderful things!
Their tops are made out of rubber;
Their bottoms are made out of springs!
They're bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy,
Fun! Fun! Fun! Fun! Fun!
But the most wonderful thing about tiggers is
I'm the only one!
