Warning: A Competitive Spirit Can Lead To Very Odd Behavior

My older two older boys are extremely competitive. 

When they saw the mid-air-puddle-jump picture I posted of the little guy, they immediately begged for me to catch them in mid-air. 

Translation:  I bet I can jump higher!

They totally cracked me up!

Over and over and over again.

We’d take a bunch of pictures.  Then go in and look at them on the computer.  And laugh our heads off!

Then we’d go back out and do it some more.

Who needs a trampoline?  Lol!

No doubt we helped confirm any doubts the neighbors had as to our oddness.  But I have to say, it was a lot of fun.

This was the closest I came to capturing them all in mid-air together. 

all together

It’s harder than you think!!!!

I LOVE that you all found so much entertainment in that kind of thing! Every once in a while my kids and I do things like that and they are some of my favorite memories. :)
