Slides are Fun

On Sunday, Annika and I met one of her school chums at a local park for a play date. The kids had a great time playing on the swings, going up and down the slides (especially the salmon slide), playing on the beach, and chasing each other.

(Side note: We went to Carkeek Park, which Annika continually called either "Car Key Park" or "Parky Park.")

Even with all of that fun, nothing compared to the big blow-up slide that was at the park. Apparently, a local church was having its summer picnic and had rented the slide and they were kind enough allow any kids in the park who expressed an interest in playing on it have a go at it. Our kids were beyond thrilled!! I can't even begin to count how many times the went up and down that thing. I knew it was a hit when Annika resisted leaving it to go down to the beach, which is one of her favorite places of all time.

Thank you to the generous church that gave our kids an added bonus level of fun on Sunday!
