Just So You Know...

...running and jumping on a Slip-N-Slide at the age of 8 is totally AWESOME.
...running and jumping on a Slip-N-Slide at the age of 30 is not nearly as fun.
In fact, it F*#@ing Hurts when you do it & realize that there is nothing more than a ziploc baggie separating you from the hard ground.

That's my thought for the day, and a promise that pics of our wild backyard adventures with the Slip-N-Slide coming soon.

Yeah, I figured that. I didn't like it when I was a kid because I didn't like being wet and getting dirty at the end. My husband loves it. He wants to put one in the front yard. We have no children.

This experience plus the black eye proves motherhood is not for sissies.

Can't wait to see pictures. I figured it would hurt pretty bad, I fell recently and it hurt way worse then I remember and it took like 10x longer to get back up.

It still sounds kind of fun though. I might give it a try this year.

I wasn't too fond of it as a kid, so I can imagine what it would be like now. Ouch!

You are SO right!! I loved the slip n slide when I was kid, so when I organized a day camp in college I thought it'd be fun to get one for an activity day....and I learned really fast that grown up bodies and slip n slides should not EVER mix.

Hahaha! I think when you are a kid, the ground is so much closer...

Mama and I are both laughing out loud over this.

I mean, sorry about your injuries and all, but that's just funny stuff.
