Summer is here!

Posted by Mandy at 12:10 PM
At the Moss house, summer has arrived! We invited our good friends, and all of their kids (plus two of their kids' friends) over to break in our new waterslide. It was SO much fun!!



Thankfully TJ was here to help Clayton put it up so I didn't have to. After watching the two of them do it the first time, it's been easy for me to up it up by myself since.


It was so fun to see how the kids feed off of each other's excitement. Each time someone else would squeel and giggle sliding down and splashing into the pool below, all of the other kids would squeel and giggle, trying to patiently wait for their turn. We had not one fight or squabble amongst the kids.. which is nothing short of amazing when pulling out a new cool toy. Everyone just stood and waited, happy to watch the others have fun until it was their turn.




Carter hated the waterslide this day. Thankfully, on a later day, we invited Tyler and Leslie over to play on it and he warmed up to it quickly. I asked him to show Tyler how to climb up and slide down and he was more than happy to show his "big boyness" to his younger friend. The next day Brandy brought the "little girls" over and he was excited, again, to show off how fearless he is.


I think this might be the best investment we've ever made - fun wise. If you want to come over for a grillin' water slidin' party.. let us know! We'll make arrangements! With school about to be out for summer, we'll have it out most of the time anyway!

lol Sure thing, SHelley!

If you read this, tell your dad that he's got a homemade card, from a 7yr old coming his way. lol Madison completed her baseball themed card (I told her how he had to miss the first softball game and she was sad about it) yesterday and we're mailing it today. So, if he gets something and wonders "who the heck?" lol.. taht's us!

Ooh...that looks like fun! And I love seeing all those kids playing on it! Fun Fun...if gas weren't so high right now, I would say...count us in for one of those slide parties!

Clay and I talked about getting one instead of joining the pool...but our yard is too steep. Bummer!
