First Annual Slip-in-Slide Party

Our first annual slip-in-slide party was a huge success! Special thanks to Christina Trecaso, not only for starting the tradition but for coaching me on the construction. Scott's cousin, Steve Meyer, his wife Nancy and their two sons, Mason and Mitchell, are visiting from Minnesota. They, along with our nephew, Shawn, his roommates and some neighbor kids, were all a big help with contruction. We used padded moving blankets under the plastic to soften the ride! It was over 60 feet long and about 8 feet wide! No injuries were reported and yes, I was still able to run and jump onto my stomach for a successful belly ride! Scott's back is injured so he didn't make it down but I'm hoping he can give it a shot on Sunday. The kids are WORN OUT! Next year we will use Johnson's Baby Shampoo for the initial "break-in", as opposed to dish soap! Click HERE if you'd like to see the movie clips.
