This post just screams "You might be a redneck", but I told you before- when it comes to cooling off, we aren't picky. Tarps will do.
Though I will say, our old houses' "slipNslide" had a WAY better slope! As you can see, they didn't mind too much.
What was really funny was the first time I brought it out- Judah, having never had a real experience with slipNslides tried to follow his big brothers' lead. But, while Andrew propelled his body forward and landed on a slick, watered surface and flew down the tarp, laughing all the way- Judah just bellyflopped on a dry spot. and THUD.
I think it might put me right in the category of BAD MOM to admit it, but it was HILARIOUS.
I was laughing hysterically while he tried to decide why everybody thought it was so fun...when all it was for him was painful.
He eventually caught on.
