Lets Launch The Kid

Lets Launch The Kid, originally uploaded by tabrandt.

My youngest, only 5, loves to be one of the big kids. We went camping over the 4th of July with family and they had a nice swimming lake with this big floating trampoline and this thing called a 'blob'. The idea is if you crawl to the very end and then someone jumps on it you get launched into the water.

All in all this is not too spectacular if you have a 100 pound kid at each end. I certainly gets more interesting when you have a 45 pound kid at the end and then a 140 pound kid jumping and subsequently launching the little guy in the air.

You might get the idea that this is a bit scary for a little guy but honestly he did this about 100 times and we actually had to pull him in and tell him he was done. Take a look at the very end of the video, his hands go strait up in the air as he let out a cheer of excitement.

Needless to say, he wants to go back and play some more.

He is simply amazing. He might be our only one to actually ride a roller coaster once he gets big enough.

That's pretty cool! I showed it to my daughter because we've seen those things before, but have never been on one. She thought it was awesome!
