My daughter LOVES to jump. On anything. Especially my bed. I really want to buy her a trampoline. My other kids would also love to have a trampoline, but my daughter would just flip out, really.
My husband says no. Too dangerous.
I thought he was just being cautious. Then one by one, while talking with friends, family and neighbors, over the past year, I discovered that he is not alone. Most doctors that we know also refuse to own trampolines.
So, we still don't own a trampoline.
But, I think I discovered something my kids would love just as much, even as teenagers.
Wouldn't that be great? I'll have to think about it more, pros, cons, etc. and then there is the possibility that this would not even work where we end up. But, it would be so much fun to have one in the backyard!
We found this court while visiting my parents. A group of teenagers (spring break-ers) were just leaving. There is a huge park with toys and play sets behind it, but my kids never even made it there. They played at the sand volleyball court for hours, shoes off, together, in the sand, without any toys or balls or any-thing. Just the sand.
