06/01/10 - Slide!
We received an invite to come back for Day #2 on the waterslide. Once you have the slide set-up and the canopy and chairs plus have a lot of leftover food from Day #1, you might as well have some more fun, right?!? It was a much smaller crowd on Day #2, and the kids and I played in the pool and on the slide for 6 hours. Water volleyball and frisbee, the waterslide with various tubes, water balloons, hamburgers and cupcakes and popsicles...a really fun time!
This is Joey making a very huge splash on his way down. The water jets up top continually soak the slide, and then the water collects at the bottom for the splash. The water looks a bit white, and that's soap bubbles created by putting some dish detergent (Dawn) on the slide to speed 'er up! I really love hanging out at the bottom of the slide with my camera trying to capture the moments as they happen. Sometimes if I stop taking pictures I get called back, "MeMe, come watch my super duper slide!" "Mom, this is gonna be the biggest splash ever!" I'm going to miss the weekend and the kids today for sure...
I did take a few dragonfly pics yesterday. They started landing on the wet floats around the pool. I just thought a fun, festive and colorful shot was the way to go for a virtual Monday and wet Tuesday here. Thanks for all your comments on yesterday's dragonfly shot.
