Quirky Tradition = Instant Happy Fun!!!

Well, we definitely are weird some of the time. And there's no weirder time in our family's life than we check into a hotel room. Instead of checking out the bathroom or seeing what channels are available on the tv, we decide that it's time to Bed Jump!!!

I've shared bed jumping pictures with you all from Savannah (those even made the www.bedjump.com website! remember? lol) and from Disney World. Now I present to you our bed jumping experiences from our hotel for the family reunion this past weekend!

McKenna doing an old school, "hang loose" sorta jump...



Delaney doing a "whippee" jump so high she got out of the frame...


Me doing... well, let's just say that I must really like you all a lot for me to post THIS one. WHAT am I doing with my mouth? lol . . .



Sydney can't quite get the air thta the rest of us do, but she still has fun...



(Gary is the cameraman, so we are yet to get him in "action." Next time though... lol)

Busy day today...
* I'm in charge of the Wednesday night supper tonight at church. Gotta prepare spaghetti for 120! Can I do it? Say it with me, "Ye s you can!" (Never done it before, so hoping I can!)
* Scanned all sorts of great old photos yesterday for Grandma's scrapbook (I'b behind on it, but it's okay!)
* Bought Disney Princess cups and napkins yesterday, getting ready for the parties this weekend! Last night as we left the ballpark (McKenna's team lost just their second game of the season; yuck!), Sydney heard some kids yelling and she said to me, "I think they're yelling, 'I'm so excited for Sydney's princess party!!!" It was SO cute!!
* Missed "American Idol" last night (we almost always miss it because of ball games!), but I was fascinated by the fact that they were going to be singing Gwen Stefani. I've added a favorite No Doubt song here in honor.

Have a SUPER Wednesday!!!

Ya'll are too funny. Jumping on the bed is never something my kids think about doing. By the time we get to hotels, for whatever reason, everyone is ready to crash! :-) Looks like ya'll had fun and the beds past your "jump tests" :-).

Spaghetti for 120 people??? CHEEZE WHIZ! (as my 5 year old says) I'm sure you'll pull it off. Let us know how that goes.

Have a great day!

Wow great pictures! I will leave it at that.

American Idol was good you didn't miss much though only 3 of them sang No Doubt songs, one was Sanjaya and his horsetail hair. The others sang songs by artists who influenced Gwen Stefani.

I think Gary needs to be in the next set of bed jumping pictures

Adrienne--Yes, I CAN do it!! I'm off in just a few minutes to buy army-sized amounts of ingredients!
Scrapperjen--Thanks!! I like to jump! lol You have a great Wed too!
Dawn--We're just nuts!!! Cheeze Whiz--I LOVE it!!!!
Phats--I was wondering how in the world they would all pick Gwen Stefani songs. I saw pics online this morning of Sanj's hair. EEK!!!!

I love your bed-jumping pics. Being larger people I would be afraid to get my family into that kind of tradition. LOL! Speaking of Syd's b'day, got any gift ideas? I recovered a Disney Princess music CD I made for Meg years ago. I will update it and make a copy for you guys. See ya!!
