I believe my mother loved that I went for anything.

I was 11 yrs old.
Oh Spring, you have been so nice this year. So much laughter and joy I have had during this Easter time. I had a grand time at my grandma & grandpa Tolman's house on Easter Sunday. Of course, like every year, it has been a tradition that all of my dad's brother's and sister's come to grandma's house with their children (I'm the 2nd oldest of 23 grandchildren). So there is a lot of love and a lot of children in this adorable house. When I walked into the house, grandpa pointed out that there was a bounce out in their backyard. My reaction.... "WHAT?!"
So for the 22 1/2 years of my life, I have NEVER seen a bounce house in their backyard. I couldn't figure out why on earth the first time there was a bounce house in the backyard on a holiday/celebration like Easter. Grandpa went on to explain that grandma wanted to keep up with the neighbors because they are always throwing parties and having fun bounce houses for the kids all the time. Grandpa also invited us to come outside so that he could demonstrate the proper and "only" way to enter/exit the bounce house. He likes to call this the Elephant Seal.
I love my grandparents!
