Monday we decided to try to beat the heat and have a summer water day. We busted out the slip & slide and a baby pool, water hose, and all kinds of water toys down at Leslie's. We ended up pretty much making a mud puddle in her backyard but, it was a blast.
Kinley, Maverick and Annabelle Grace had so much fun slipping and sliding. Leslie and I took a go at the slip & slide....fortunately, pregnant Lindsey decided against it. Here is Leslie, 8 weeks postpartum like a total champ. No pics of me since I was the picture-taker.
We decided it needed a little more slip...so we put baby shampoo and vegetable oil on it to slide a little faster. It was way fun and we were soaked head to toe by the time it was over. Ty loved sitting in the pool part at the end of the slip and slide to splash away and have everyone come to him.
The "swimming" in the baby pool was a hit too.
It is so funny because Kinley has been so scared of the pool so far this summer and going under water and getting her head under. But, apparently that fear only applies to actual swimming pools where she can't touch the ground because she was all about going under and being crazy in the baby pool.
Then they all decided it was a good idea to jump off the slide in the baby pool into 2 feet of water. Of course, this happened after they had been sliding all over vegetable oil and were so slippery that we were a little scared they might all fall over and hit their heads. We offered a little assistance at first..but, two and three year olds tend to be a little bossy about wanting to do it "all by myself."
After all the water activities we all jumped in the stroller and headed down to our house for lunch. Who says the double bob is just for 2 kids?!?
Isn't this just what summer is all about!? I can't wait for more days like these!
