Slipping and sliding


When Grandma was here visiting last weekend she whipped out a slip-n-slide from somewhere in her suitcase and we took the boys outside to have some fun.  It was the first time they have tried a slip-n-slide so I don't know why I was surprised that they didn't know what to do! We kept trying to tell them to run and dive but they just weren't going to do it.  So Big C put on his swimsuit and demonstrated.

 I think it's funny that he has perfect diving form.

Once he did that all they wanted to do was stand there and laugh at him!  Grandma was videoing and I was shooting photos, all laughing at with poor Daddy.  He's such a good sport!  The boys were still a little unwilling to try so Christian would pick them up by the shorts and kind of give them a toss to help them out.  It was pretty hysterical.  They finally decided it was fun; and then it began to rain. Of course! But no complaints, we need the rain.

It was worth laying in the dry prickly grass (on top of an ant hill!) to get some pictures.  We laughed about how small a slip-n-slide looks when you're grown up?! I remember it being a lot bigger.
