dave bought two tarps at costco and a bottle of tear-free baby shampoo.
he and craig taped the tarps together, turned on the hose and we had an instant homemade
SUPER SIZED slip n' slide!
everyone used the shampoo on their fronts to be more slippery....IT WAS AWESOME!
it came more natural to some of the kids.
and frustrating to others.
we finally had to bribe them....one dollar for any kid who can make it to the end.
it was really far.
but suddenly everyone was out on the hill and had won their dollar.
we called lauren outside.
i told her if she would do it.....then i would do it.
she said "if you do and i do....then jenny has to do it too"
and she added "NO PICTURES"
no pictures of lauren....i was fine with it.
and jenny is always fun.
dave took some video.
i adore it.
he is shouting "DOLLAR!!!" and everyone is so happy.
that night i uploaded my pictures from the day onto the laptop.
i started clicking through them and others joined me in looking through.
then we got to craig's pics of ME going for me first time.
everyone is looking and i started clicking faster trying to move them OFF of ME.
and i am not kidding....there were 38 pictures in a row.
he caught every split second of it.
i had it on action setting and he just held down the button.
i was screaming with hysterical laughter as i kept clicking and clicking trying to get to a cute kid
instead of ME in my MOM suit....RUNNING.
i kept yelling "NO! OH NO!!!"
we were watching a slow motion movie with way too much detail on full screen....yikes.
it was very very funny.
so last night i highlighted them all to delete them....and then i thought....
it WOULD be funny to make a movie of them.
i am over the embarrassment of it and just think it's funny now.
and now....without furthur ado....
6 seconds of embarrassment.
i was sore the next day.
it's not really meant for grown ups....but it really was fun.
