things the slip & slide taught me

  • Having a hill in your backyard is awesome.

  • Two-year-olds may need a little time to adjust to the slip & slide.

  • Eight-year-olds and ten-year-olds, not so much.

  • There are only so many times you can watch your kids go down the slip & slide before you want to try it yourself.

  • Kids can go down it on their knees; adults cannot.

  • If you are over, say, 60lbs, that little inflatable pool at the bottom is so not enough to stop you. You will continue to barrel-roll down the hill, becoming covered with grass and dirt.

  • Your neighbors will find this amusing.

Consider this a public service announcement, from me to you.
