no. i'm not talking about that kind of family tramp. i'm talking about the family tramp that the neighbors who moved away gifted you before their departure. i don't think a week had passed since members from both families hefted the awkard ring over the three-foot fence (pictured in the background) that marty commented on how comfy of a bed it looked like. then, i don't think two days passed before the first set of kids (and marty) spent the night on the tramp. that was in 2014. when summer 2015 began marty spent several straight nights sleeping out there with either anthony or alex or both. i know there are times that it is the kids driving these sorts of activities. in this case, it is fully the mother, all 44 years of her that is adding some youthfulness to our summer months.
also, marty's adventurous creativity led to bella and i holding our saturday night ritual of watching scary movies out there one week. the movie that night was blairwitch. when it was done, we zipped up in our bags and after much shifting and snapping our heads to spy a wayward sound, we finally drifted to sleep.
