Slippin' and Slidin'

Wow, was it HOT here in WV a couple weekends ago! It was over 90 degrees on Saturday afternoon! John and I had started on opening the pool Friday evening, and I was working on it a little Saturday afternoon, the kids were trying to get in - that wasn't going to happen, the water is COLD, but I figured it was totally warm enough for some sprinkler play.

Last year, the kids refused to use the Slip N' Slide (that I got for $5 on clearance), because the water from the hose was too cold, but that didn't stop them on Saturday. I will say that the water from our hose is cold - we have well water and our well is about 200 foot deep. So, we would let the water run on the Slip N' Slide for a minute, then shut it off for them to go down. They had a blast!

They also have developed some sort of obsession with worms. I don't know, so don't ask. Taylor names them and wants to keep them as pets - GROSS!!!!

Here is the video from the SlipNSlide - I will pre-apologize for Taylor's horrid noise in the last part!
