Slip and Slide!

We made a run to Target yesterday (I’m always amazed at how many people shop on holidays lol) and picked up a good ol fashioned slip and slide! I never had one as a kid so after much explaining the concept of the tummy slide to the kids, and them chickening out at the point of leap, I convinced my poor hubs, in shirt and jeans, to show’em how its done!

I really thought he’d pull out at the last minute.

I was wonderfully wrong and ready with my camera! What a great one time shot! After the primo demo from Daddy the were more willing to give it a shot. Dude never committed to the tummy slide, preferring the butt scoot method, but Chicka finally committed and took a dive… even if it was from the wrong end LOL

I can see this being the best $6 purchase of the summer! I didn’t take a run down the slide, I felt way self conscious with the MIL right there but maybe when its just me and the kids I’ll have to dive in. Who can resist right?

What did you do for holiday fun?
