it all started with a fence post

This weekend I decided to use the warm weather to get some of the outside projects completed. On the top of the list was a job entitled, "replace the fence post". So, Katie and I went down to Lowe's to get the materials required to get the job done. I didn't know what I was doing so we had to make several trips back and forth and back again. After many excruciating trips, we were ready to replace the bad post.

After putting the new post in, I realized that I was on the wrong side of the fence to try and put the fence slats back on the fence. So, I devised an engenious plan of putting my ladder over the top of the fence and just climb over. I dragged the trampoline over to the fence so I could position the ladder just right. It looked like this.



After climbing over and back and over again to finish the task, I realized how fun it would be to jump off the top of the ladder onto the trampoline. I grabbed Coby to see if he would be willing to do it. I don't jump on the trampoline anymore because of #3 on my "turning 40" post. He made a couple of jumps and immediately I started to think about my video camera. "This would make a good video clip" I thought. So, I grabbed the flip video and started to make a movie. I had to leave to help serve food for the Young Women in our Stake so Coby, Andy and Landon finished the rest of the movie. Some of it is kinda choppy but I thought it turned out pretty good. Below is the final product.

That was awesome. I loved the first jump of Cobys.

That is sooo cool Clint. There is a cinamatography merit badge. If Coby weren't and eagle yet he could easily earn it. Wow, impressive!!

Hey Clint, great little flick. You are such a fun dad. Sorry we left without saying goodbye. I thought you were in Elders quorum the Sunday I announced we were moving. I guess no one paid attention. Nobody came to help us move...but that's okay, I didn't really tell anyone except a brief mention at the end of church. We miss you guys. I look forward to staying in touch. Anything new lately? I think I still have the chains for the Nissan. We packed them when we were moving the garage stuff. I wanted to take them to you, but we were too busy loading the moving truck. It took us two full weekends to move. Tell everyone I said hi.

Okay, just to say, Landon Cha-cha'd: "How did the boy in the orange shirt on ALMADAYUNGA's youtube video, The Super Nerf War, get onto the roof?" He got the answer: "It appears that he got on there using a trampoline." Even though it's not true, we still got one more view, and if we Cha-Cha more things like that, we can get a lot more views!
