I would like to have the text start above the first picture, but, I guess this blog will not cooperate with me tonight. Anyway, we had the awesome experience to spend yet another weekend up in Idaho, but this time for the Lovell reunion. My Grandpa's brothers own a ton of land up in Ririe and they have a ranch house with many fun things to do...
I think that this trampoline has been here since I was a little girl. That thing has some bounce to it.
I have no idea how high this slide actually is, but I truly had to psyche myself up to go down it. My cousin suggested me sliding down on a towel so I wouldn't burn my bum, but I decided against it when the kid before me slid down on one and face planted it at the bottom. The sound of skin scraping on a hot metal slide is not very pleasant. So, after a few minutes of self talk and encouragement from the bystanders, I took the plunge and headed down the long, fast and very hot slide...
I would say a ten for the landing. The second time I went my momentum kept me running pretty fast and almost tripped on my mom.
I remember this water slide being so much bigger as a kid. Anna and Zack wanted to go down so I volunteered to take them (I am such a nice aunt). Zack, who usually is fearless started screaming halfway down (this slide picked up some pretty good speed). Anna was fine until we hit the water. So, here I have Zack and Anna, one in each arm, screaming. I was laughing so hard I couldnt stand up. When I finally did ( I had one kid in each arm) I realized my swim skirt was above the rear and asked a random cousin (dont know her name) if she would pull my skirt back down (the water slide caused a slight wedgie).
I think in this picture, Anna was saying,"No, I want to hold mommy!" That is what she says when she wants Mommy to hold her.
I really dont know what I was doing in this picture...probably trying to take a bite of Scott's food. I always do that and it drives him nuts!! :)
