L kind of got the idea, but he kept sliding on his back and did not make it even half-way down the slide:
I had no real intentions of sliding myself, but when they were not even sliding, I knew it was my turn. I ran inside real quick, changed into my swim suit, and came out to show them how it was done. On my first attempt I went about 100 MPH and flew off the end, but after several more times I was able to show them the perfect slip n' sliding:
O was pretty timid of the sprinklers on the sides of the slip n' slide at first, but after watching for a while, he ventured out to give it a try:
Despite the fact that none of the kids really got the concept of slipping and sliding on the slip n' slide, they had a really great time. In fact, the sprinklers on the side of the slip n' slide and the little pool at the end probably made it a little more fun to them than the basic hopscotch sprinkler that we used earlier in the week.
