After a trip to REI and naps for everyone we headed over to our friends, the Phillips, House. They are the best party throwers. You never know if something will be blown up or caught on fire. We had no idea what type of entertainment we were in for =)
A water slide was rented for the kids, a kiddie pool was available, there was a giant sand pit and a trampoline and swing set. Of course the water slide was high jacked by adult men.
Here some of us are braving the heat and hanging out.
At one point a large portion of the kiddos wound up in the sand pit. They are of course also covered in water and mud. But they were having a ball.
Then the real entertainment began. The men decided to empty the kiddie pool and use it as a "sled" to go down the water slide. Now, these are not small men, and they all tried fitting in the "sled". How do you think this turned out?????
Is this what you thought???
We definitely had a wonderful time hanging out together and with friends. I know Chris and I are super appreciative of all families who sacrifice and who have loved ones that sacrifice for us so that we can celebrate on days like this one. We are especially proud to be close friends with and to live life with several of these families.
