We bought a trampoline for the kids and finally we have had some nice weather so it was time to put it up. I had read some reviews and comments on-line and we figured it was going to take about 2 hours to construct. Chrissy was thinking it was going to take us all day. Ian, Steve and I got started at 9:30 and we finished at...wait for it...10:40. Thanks so much to Ian and Steve! Constructing... All done.
I had to try it first to make sure it was safe :) Abby testing out the new trampoline with Zach

Saturday Morning we met Uncle Mike and Auntie Megan at Smitty's for breakfast and then came back to the house to play in the backyard.
Beautiful Bear Handsome Duke I think someone wants out. (I joke that we should stick the kids in the trampoline, toss a lock on the door and then Chrissy and I could go out for dinner! Kids probably wouldn't even know we were gone! haha) Chrissy and Bear Auntie Megan showing off some of her sweet old cheer leading moves! Doggy pile on Uncle Mike!!! Uncle Mike and Auntie Megan having some fun (I hope this ends well...) Uncle Mike double bouncing the girls Uncle Mike and Uncle Burgee waiting their turns to jump

Sue and Steve were out and about so Chrissy and I got to spend time with all 4 kids. We decided to take them all for a drive. Ally and Abby in the back and Zach and Sydney in the middle. This week we bought a new truck. We bought a 2011 GMC Sierra that will be very nice to pull the trailer with. Here is a picture of the kids saying good bye to the Betty Lou (the Minivan).
