For the last year all my daughter has talked about is wanting a big party for her birthday with all her friends and family, and a Jolly Jumper. A BIG jumper, and it had to be a princess castle.
This is for her 18th birthday... mind you, not her 3rd.
I made sure the jumper people knew it would be used by teenagers. The rental agreement said "no more than 2 teenagers at a time"..... ooops
It also said "must be supervised" Does this look like I'm supervising? (BTW, I'm wearing my Eiffel!)
Other rules we "broke" - hmmmm, no flips, no mixing of age groups - at one point my 50-year-old husband, a bunch of teenagers, and a 5-year-old were all in there playing a mean game of dodge ball. Hey - at least I didn't them bring in food or drinks, or pointy objects (I considered trying to get a picture of my jumping with my knitting for you... but figured the "pointy objects" rule probably ought to be one we obey).
The only one who got hurt the whole day was my BIL, and he wasn't even in the jumper at the time. He fell off the Bongo Board
I tell ya - renting that jumper was worth every cent. Add in hamburgers, hot dogs, ice cream cake, and a couple of 3' speakers hooked up in the backyard for party tunes, and ya got yourself a pretty great 18th Birthday Party. I highly recommend it for any age.
There was a little knitting, when I wasn't in the jumper or eating.... can anyone guess what this will be? Big hint - I'm probably the LAST knitter on earth to make one of these. I'm not telling. It'll be evident soon enough, and you can probably tell already by the subtleties in the knit pattern.
Party on, my friends.
