Backyard Balancing

Little Man is fascinated with parkour.  Evidently most 9 to 15 year old boys are very interested in parkour.  I have listened to many details and how to do x,y, and z from him.  We have a trampoline and he jumps a good bit.  He wanted to set up some kind of parkour course in the backyard.

I decided to move the trampoline over and create an area devoted to him bouncing, jumping, and balancing.  We had scrap lumber sitting around from deck construction, some concrete blocks, and tree stumps.  All things that could be re-purposed to create an area to satisfy his needs.

Now he can walk balance beams (skinny and wide), run up ramps, use different balance boards, hop from stump to stump, and jump until his heart is content.

It is still a work in progress.  Now, Hubby wants to add a heavy bag to workout with and who knows what else!
