Slip & Slide

The kids were here on Saturday so we pulled out Noah's slip & slide and set it up on the grass next to the driveway. When Noah first used it last year he kept trying to slide on his knees. It was hard to describe to him about just flopping on his stomach to slide so Jerry got in the act and demonstrated. That was a site to behold. From this photo it's obvious that Noah figured it out. (photos are clickable for a larger view)

Hayden watched Noah for a while and then she proceeded to crawl down the slip and slide. When she reached the end she would crawl off and back up the drive to the start and do it again. I guess she figured that if Noah would go back up the drive to the start she would too. The driveway was tough on her knees. She is walking but is still more confident crawling so she sticks with that mode of transportation most often. You would have thought she'd want to walk on the driveway instead of crawl.

Both kids had a great time and it was fun to watch them.
