Summer Fun!

Yep, I said "summer" fun! Easter weekend through today, we've been having some VERY hot weather for April. Upper 80s and breaking 90 once in a while! We went Tuesday and spent the easter egg money (plus a small addition from mom and dad) on some serious water fun! Add a few friends and the water hose, and you've got great "summer" fun in April. The first day we set it up for our friends, the slide kept turning over. It was so annoying and I was getting extremely aggravated since it wasn't a super cheap thing $$ wise. Well, when Corey got home from work we inspected it more closely and discovered some columns made into the bottom for filling with water and weighing it down. Would have been SO NICE to know when the kids were turning it over every time they slid down, ha ha!




We got it out one more time yesterday to try out the new improved weighed down slide and it was awesome! But today, spring has returned with April showers and lower temps, so the slide has been put away until summer returns!


This is Katie the first time she actually went down the slide. She said, "That was awesome!"






We discussed bringing the slide part to the beach! What do you think? ha ha! I picture it on the edge of the water facing the beach...dig a pit at the bottom that will fill up with water when the waves come up! With the water in the slide now it wouldn't float away... what do you think? ha ha!
