The Bounce is Back

I've been so busy over the last week that I haven't had a chance to write about the demise of the trampoline. Yep, less than a month after Santa brought it, the bungee cord - the thing that makes it bounce - broke! It actually broke right before we went out for Fellan's first bike ride without training wheels, but I was so excited about that, I forgot to mention it!

After it broke, we immediately ordered two new bungee cords (at $15 a pop - yikes! If we have to get a new one every month, this could get really expensive...) and began anxiously awaiting their arrival. What made it worse was that it's been raining ever since the trampoline broke. On Wednesday night last week, in an act of desperation, we actually drove out to one of the malls so that the kids could play in the kiddie play area and release some of their pent-up energy!

So, on Friday, when the new bungee cords arrived, it was quite the celebration in the house. We got the trampoline back together and the kids have been happily bouncing away ever since.

We're still waiting for the replacement Smart Cycle...
