We have a really tiny yard. Last summer I wanted to buy the boys a wading pool, but Mark said it would take up too much space, and it would kill the grass. Instead I talked him into buying a Slip-n-Slide since it can be easily rolled up and stored in the basement between uses. But for some reason we never used it last summer at all.
Today was my half-day off work again. It was a beautiful 93 degrees outside! Perfect weather for finally breaking out that Slip-n-Slide!
The big boys had a blast.
Here they are demonstrating what NOT to do.
Mark and I took lots of pictures, then sat in the shade to watch with Ben. I got the bright idea to put Ben’s feet in the little pool of water that had accumulated at the end of the slide. I guess it wasn’t such a bright idea after all.
The big boys played for a long time. They are already asking to get it out tomorrow again. Who needs the beach or a pool? 😉
