Hello M:R Nation –
It’s now June and with this month comes some pretty hot/humid weather. We pretty much skipped Spring here in the Kansas City are and went straight to summer as we do every year, but it just happened so fast this time around. Yesterday, the first day of June, kept true to it’s form and brought a humid 85 degree day. YUCK! If you have kids, you know the dilemma here. We can’t possible stay inside and relax for a whole 24 hours, but it’s not going to be an enjoyable day outside either. So what does this dad do? Breaks out the Slip N’ Slide!
You remember this from your childhood, don’t you? If not, allow me to give you a frightening description. You basically spread out a very long trash bag in your back yard, spray it with water and allow your children to launch themselves at full blast, head first into the ground. All while hoping they actuality slide and not jab themselves with a stray rock. Sounds fun, right? Hey, its a right of passage for every child and who am I to deny my children of this? Needless to say, we had hours of fun. However, while I was watching them enjoying this death defying piece of equipment, I kind of got the itch to try it out…
Luckily, I didn’t go through with it. I can’t imagine how I would feel right now, if I actually barreled myself down that “slide”. This thing was made for a 5 year old for a reason my wife told me, and I am so thankful I listened to her:-)
