Channeling our Inner Kid

Posted by TEAM PARKER at 2:53 PM 0 comments Links to this post
The 4th of July weekend usually means fun in the sun for us, and this year was no different.  With the exception of a trip out to a local winery and lunch on the lake, we decided to take it to the backyard this year vs. the lake or pool, and boy did we had fun!  Just like little kids! (oh and I think they enjoyed it, too)

Maybe she could be the talent for the next packaging photo shoot?

It all started out on Saturday with a quick trip to WalMart for a Slip N Slide.  We had fun with it even though we are too big for it, but the real fun came on Monday when we combined our friend's Slip N Slide with ours to form a bit of an obstacle course--and that it was!  There were only a couple of us that actually made it to the end, and that was still a feat.  I've only posted the pics of my husband and me here, because I'm not sure I have permission to post to the public all of the mishaps that went on.  Let me put it this way, it was a true WIPEOUT ZONE, just like the show on TV with bodies trying to master something that didn't even support our body weight. 

I think there is a reason these things are made for kids because I was quite sore the next day...and the next!  But the entertainment factor for the 15 or so of us that were there was beyond words.  The amount of laughter could have also been a culprit for my sore body.

What really got me, was how funny little Miss thought we all were trying to conquer something that was really made for her.  She would get down right giddy watching us throw our bodies into the air, just hoping to make it to the end.  But, in most cases didn't make it past the first pool.  And, of course she loved playing with her friend, Mia and eating lots of holiday treats!

What a fun time it was, but for now all of the air has been removed from the paraphernalia and loaded up for storage...until next time.

What kind of games and activities do you take part in to ensure your inner kid is still alive?
