i went to the jump 4 diabetes. or as the real name.....dare me 4 charity. it was so fun. we got to go on this crane thing and then jump off it into this big bounce house without a top. when me and my brother looked at the people jumping...we saw one person do the 32ft drop. we wanted to do that drop. it looked small from on the ground and we told ourselves we could. it took along time to wait to jump. people were getting scared and chickening out. so it took a long time.... finally the moment came! i got on the crane with my dad,bro,and 2 other guys. when we went up all the was scary and higher then it looked. the 2 guys went first. then dad.... me and my bro decided to go down a little so we went to like 25ft. my bro jumped first. then i did! it was so fun and scary! i loved but hated it. really it was not the jump or the fall that scared me it was that dang crane thing. it wiggled and screeched and creaked. i saw a bunch of people there... well thats it! see ya!
