Slip N Slide Fun

One of the most fun parts of our new house is the yard. The back yard is flat and has a great playground area. The front has a big sloping grassy area that is perfect for a big slip n slide. We decided to give it a try last week. 

The Garners overseeing the festivities

I ordered one (husband approved off Amazon) that is 75 feet long. It was the perfect length for the kids.

We also celebrated Holden's birthday as it was two days later. He loved the celebration aspect (aka cake, cookies, and candles) but not so much the slip n slide. 

The Tuckers

The twins have gotten so big! Walking everywhere, I am thinking this is Ellie, but I could be wrong as they look so much alike!

James giving it a try

and Brett...which is when we realized it was not long enough for the adults as they went speeding down and kept going off the slide for -oh I don't know- about 15 feet in the dirt. Bruises, scrapes, etc. were acquired by all. Did this phase them? Nah...plans were made for tripling the length. 
Don't worry I stayed OFF

Holden how old are you?
Close buddy.
Trying it again

This is a perfect depiction of my second born. He wasn't really into the "thrill" of the slide, but enjoyed drinking from the sprinkler, running up and down the hill, and eating his weight in goldfish. 
And when we are celebrating your birthday, do what you want to do.

Happy Birthday to Holden and Jana!!
It is so hard to believe my baby (for five more weeks) is two. James and I told him about the day he was born several times. He loves hearing about how he "crawled" out of momma's tummy (if it were only that easy!!). 
He is so full of life. He loves to cuddle and will hug and kiss you anytime. 
He is just as sassy as sweet. He will adamantly tell me "NO, I not do that. " not caring that there will be consequences. I have a feeling he will teach us creativity with discipline ;)
He calls his new brother "Caillou (most winny kid on tv) Mickey Mouse Osborn Jr." and then laughs at himself. 
I think you are funny too Holds.
