Fun with Ice and a Trampoline

So this weekend was WONDERFUL! Oh my, the weather was just fantastic, both kiddos have sunburnt cheeks! I thought I'd try something fun with them when they weren't expecting it so I dumped a whole container of ice cubes on the trampoline when they were on it. They had a blast LOL

EmmaP said...

What a way to keep them occupied!

Marla said...

Now that looks like fun. I will have to do that with our trampoline.

How fun are you?

Wep said...

That's AWESOME!!!

Kim said...

Great pics!

Dee said...

My girls would love that!

Shanda said...

So fun...I love you pictures!

Heather said...

First of all, LOVE the "action shot" pictures!

Secondly, I'm soooo jealous that your neck of the woods has weather that allows SHORTS. In APRIL. Here in my neck of the woods, my kiddo went hunting for Easter Eggs in snowpants in April a few years back.

Yeah - you: shorts in April. Us: snow gear in April. Clearly, we're living in the wrong corner of the country..... :D

now THAT looks like some fun!

dddiva said...

Looks like some serious fun was had. My girls are getting older now, and the goofy things like this are the best memories, the ones they keep bringing up.

Ronnica said...

That looks fun!

What A Card said...

Wow, that was a great idea. And you got some really awesome pictures!

Kelly Deneen said...

LOL! That does look fun! Your daughter sure gets some air!!

Aubrey said...

Look at you being a fun mom!! My daughter loves jumping with the sprinkler on underneath!

CanCan (MomMostTraveled) said...

Fun times!
We used to soak it down with the hose on hot days. It was very safe (just kidding).

Amy said...

I love this! I use to do this when I was little! We'd play it like hot potato style where you couldn't touch any of the ice. lol fun times!

cricketphx said...

Wow, makes me wish we hadn't gotten rid of our trampoline!

Felicia Eis said...

Ooooo I know what i am doing with my siblings next time I visit.

Jenni said...

I love taking pictures of my kids on the trampoline. You can get fun results. I like the one with the legs thrown back and the ice flying. Too bad I don't own a trampoline. I have to take at other people's houses.

Melissa Lester said...

You caught some high-flying fun! My kids love going to their cousins' house to jump on the trampoline, and it brings back my own childhood memories of jumping at a friend's house. My sister and I used to dream of owning our own trampoline when we would see them propped up outside stores on our drive to my grandparents. Glad you made that dream come true for your children!

"necessity is the mother of invention," huh? ;) our tramp sits in direct sun and gets very hot, so we got a cheapie rotating lawn sprinkler and set it up directly under the tramp - kids loved it! :)

*MWAH!*

Teryn said...

What a great idea!

Simply Stork said...

Now we've done the sprinkler but I never thought of icecubes before...my boys would love that!

~simply~

Live.Love.Eat said...

Ah, so cool. In more ways than one. I am sure they thought you were one cool mom.

Ali said...

That looks like so much fun, my kids would LOVE it! We don't get to use the tramp during summer here in AZ, it gets too hot! They love it the rest of the year though. They love the sprinkler under the tramp and H2O balloons (messy but fun). Fun, fun, fun!

Debbie Y. said...

I wouldn't quit bouncing until the last piece of ice finished melting and I bet your kids didn't either.

Cute pics of the babies having such fun.

Happy SITS day!

verygoodyear said...

Oh, that's not too bad of an idea at all :] I would love to have a trampoline in the yard sometime...

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

Whee!!!!!!! That looks like a blast!!!!

Shannon said...

FUN! My kiddos want a trampoline so badly...

Laura said...

That was a good idea. My neice was complaining about the soup I gave them the other day. I put an ice cube in it and next thing she had eaten all the soup, chasing the ice cube around as it melted.

Swirl Girl said...

just add tequilla and line juice and you have a kiddie margarita!

Liz Davis said...

What Fun, I can't wait to try this out!!!

Mandy said...

That looks fun! Love the action shots.

lynn said...

That looks like fun. I haven't been on a trampoline in forever! BTW, congrats on your SITS feature today!

Karol said...

Those pictures are great!!

G. said...

How Fun!!!

EmBee said...

What a COOL Mom... Quite literally!
:-)

Melissa said...

Happy SITS day! You sound like such a fun mom. I would be the Debbie Downer mom who freaks out when my daughter is on a trampoline without ice! :)

How we met! said...

What a fun time for your kids! I'd never have thought of that!

Stephanie said...

That looks like so much fun!

Vicki said...

Great pics! Makes me want to be a kid again. Except I don't jump on trampolines any more after having two kids...

You're a fun mom!

Mama Dawg said...

That looks AWESOME! I'll have to remember that.

nikkicrumpet said...

Looks like a fun way to spice up some jumping...what a fun mom!

Red Cup Mom said...

This is hilarious!!!!! What a fun Mom idea that was.

Jamy said...

Hey SITSta! Congrats on being featured! Wow, what a great idea!

Mrs. S said...

How fun!
I love the ice cubes! And I love your trampoline...they make those much safer now!

Mama's Losin' It said...

What a fun mom you are! Next time get them with the hose...

andrea said...

Boy, you've got waaaaay more nerve than me, Miss Nervous Nellie;) I'd be worried about slipping...but then again I worry with them running down the stairs!!!

Sunshine said...

Great idea! I have the ice and the kiddos...I just need the trampoline! ;D

wendy said...

How fun! My friend used to run the sprinkler under the trampoline for her kids. :)

Happy SITS day!

Becky :) said...

What fun!!!!!!! It looks like they really enjoyed it. Way to mix it up on the trampoline.!!!

Jaime said...

What a great idea, I'll have to try it.

Jen said...

That is an excellent idea. I am so doing it with my kids. Only first we need to get a trampoline.

Britt said...

That looks so cool .. haha

My husband and brother used to hang the hose from a tree branch so they could 'jump in the rain' .. I just sat and watched them. It sounded a little too much like a broken bone to me ;o)

Michelle said...

Oh how fun! I want to go try that now. Of course I'd need a trampoline first. And apparently a pretty cool mom!

Busymama Kellie said...

A trampoline, how cool is that? Although my drama queen and king would probably end up bonking heads and scream for their boo boo buddies.

Kelly said...

What a neat idea! It looks like they loved every minute of it!!

Rela Pantaleon-Manigsaca said...

Indeed, it looks like fun!

But does it hurt a bit on the foot when you step on one of the ice cubes?

WheresMyAngels said...

Ok, somehow that looks painful to me!

Be-Frazzled Mom said...

That looks like a blast.

mrsbear said...

I miss being young enough to bounce on a trampoline. Looks like a blast.

Rhea said...

What a fun idea! I love the photos. Really awesome to see the kids having a blast and the ice flying. hehe
