slip-n-slide saturday, redneck style

Posted by nonnasnonsense on December 20, 2008

this is one of the things we do in the summer time:

(sorry bout crappy quality-my choices were good vision-no sound
or bad vision w/sound)

he absolutely loved it! when i wasn’t filming him, i would start beside him, then when he slowed down, i would grab his ankle and pull him on down with me. we all had a blast sliding down our little hill.

i eventually got a real slip-n-slide with the little pool at the end. after we got done sliding, i was reading the warning lable on the slip-n-slide. we managed to break every rule.
1. no one over 12 – smashed
2. no hills – how do they expect you to go fast like that??
3. no more than 1 person at a time – don’t they know you can’t do a train slide w/only 1 person??
4. no one over ___lbs – i don’t remember the weight limit, but we i exceeded it quite a bit.

i’m sure there were more rules, but i don’t remember them now. i do know why the age limit is there. do you remember how much fun it is to slide on those things?? well, it’s not so much fun the next day when you’re grown. jamie & i had bruises all up and down our bods.

i will have to seriously weigh the future pain against current fun and see which one wins out next time.
