Slip N Slide -- Times Two

"Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it."
~Russel Baker

Back when we lived in our house-without-a-pool in Elk Grove, we often took Blake and Nick to the community swimming pool and the pool at our gym.

But on those days when we didn't feel like packing the pool paraphernalia and getting into a scorching car in the 100-degree heat, we whipped out an old favorite: the Slip N Slide. And who doesn't love a Slip N Slide?

Now that we're in Phoenix and are lucky enough to have a pool (actually luck had nothing to do with it; it was one of my demands during the should-we-move-negotiations) the Slip N Slide was a distant memory.

Until ... we went to Allie's end-of-the-season party thrown by her dance studio. As soon as Allie and Zach spied it, they were hooked. Brett got a good workout in, too.
