Hillbilly Haven

One never knows what to expect in our yard. I give credit to Carson and his best buddy for finding ways to entertain themselves in creative ways that don't (always) involve sitting in front of the TV or Xbox. So, I wasn't too surprised when Carson called home to ask if he could bring home a slip n slide.

Except this wasn't your typical slip n slide. His buddy's family is replacing their pool liner and the boys thought up a great new use for the old liner. And, conveniently, his buddy's famly doesn't have any hills and the boys felt the slip n slide would work better if set up on a slight hill.

And it's not just one piece of pool liner, it's multiple sections pieced together.

The kids had a blast and it was a new way to cool down in the summer heat. One can only guess what will show up next in our yard....

...there is a video posted on FB....I'm just too tired to repost it here.

We have done this in our back yard, but we added dish soap to it ;-)

Karen said... that looks like some terrific fun! Enjoy!

around here, (down the street just a bit) "hillbilly heaven" is more like a galvanized livestock trough setting in your front yard filled with water... (complete w/children splashing in it and tiki torches scattered about to give it that tropical ambience)... ;)
