A giant slip and slide that is! This past weekend my husband constructed a gigantic slip and slide for the kids and well the adults too I guess…I think we ended up having more fun than the kids did. My ribs are still sore from sliding and my knees and elbows are nice and bruised…what a small price to pay for a weekend of fun though!! When we first pulled the slide out there were only about 4 or 5 of us on it, by the end of the day most of the neighbors were over and we were grilling out…I love spontaneous neighborhood get togethers:) Almost everyone that stopped by took a run down the slide… which was very entertaining. On my first run down the slide - I tried to take off while no one was looking- I got a little air, landed hard on my chest and slide about 10 feet before coming to a complete stop…the only thing I can compare my attempt to is a runner jumping for the finish line and landing just inches short…although I was about 60 feet short of the finish line. LOL It got a good laugh, that was more of what I was going for;) Alot of these pictures were taken with a 16-35mm lens that I borrowed for the day…if anyone is trying to think of a good- “we love you Jess” present that would be it…and it is on sale for $1,350 if you act now. LOL A girl can dream can’t she;)
The bravest 9 month old I know! He loved it!
Even the dog got in on the action.
Noah took the big hit of the day with a tag team from R & C. He flipped all the
way over, and then got up and slide back down again. Fearless!
I am pretty sure he hurt himself attempting this picture and I made him do it 3 times.
Two of the times I didn’t have my camera ready…sorry dear.
There was even some kung fun fighting (I have no idea what she was doing, she just
busted out a few karate moves all of the sudden).
fun to end. Reece was trying to console him:)
Our neighbors hung up their tree swing on Sunday, which some of the kids used to air dry!
And then the sun set…but our fun still continued…
I bet none of you thought of using your target bags as a shower cap slip and slide cap.
Practicing his Lotus pose on the slip and slide!
Kathi also mastered the Lotus slide…
