"Perfect song on the radio, sing along cause it's one we know
It's a smile, it's a kiss, it's a sip of wine
It's summertime, sweet summertime"
-- Kenny Chesney
We're well into summer now and in our dear Florida that means....scorching heat! What have we been doing to keep our cool? Three words - "SLIP AND SLIDE!" I picked one of these up at Wal-Mart just as a fluke for only $8! It was seriously the BEST $8 ever spent. Just seeing that thing in the box brought back fond memories of summer fun - AND scrapes and bruises. I set it up in the backyard for Harrison and immediately remembered the slip & slide of my youth being a lot bigger!
Obviously, size didn't matter for Harrison. He spent the entire afternoon on this thing! I think I heard "Watch, Mama!" about a hundred times. Joy in the simple things. After the slip & slide had been running for an hour or so, it was more of a mudslide than a water slide. Did that make a difference to my dirt dauber?? Absolutely not...in fact, the mud made things MORE fun!
Note: Justin's mom has a similar photo of Justin on a slip & slide and he's about the same age as Harrison. If I can find it, I'll add it to this post. They are the SAME kid, just 25+ years apart!
(What can I say? The boy's got skills)
