When it’s a hideously hot day and your parents have to spend five hours working on the house, the only thing to do is clear a place in the debris field, have your dad mow it, and set up a slip n slide!
Doug and I were trying to get the basement into shape, with very limited success, and it was 89 degrees in the front yard. Clearly, kids had the much better time of it.
Proof that we are Bad Parents: the slip n slide extended from the enormous dumpster on one end to a pile of old roofing material on the other. Doug mowed, I checked the grass for nails or glass, and nobody bothered with swim suits (even if they had had them).
Lunch was bought at Home Depot (Pringles, beef jerky, and peanut m&ms).
Tabitha, seen here with Pringles Cheek (TM), provided hair-related comic relief.
Come visit – we’ll let you slide too!
