Slip and Slide and some fun

Well, Gabby had her friend over on Wednesday and I guess they were bored so they walked to the Dollar Store and bought a slip and slide. It really wasn't warm at all that day, more like a long sleeve kind of day and they were out there in the water having a ball. Good for them!

Then on Thursday it was actually hot and they brought it out again. This time Michael joined in on the fun too, ziploc bag taped around his hand.

Nice over exposed picture, Katrina would have a fit! :)
Amazing how much fun kids can have with a 10$ item and some dishwashing liquid. Plus it got them out of the house and into the sunshine! Gabby and I started walking/jogging around the Park too, I really need to get a little more active. Sitting at the computer all the time and only training 2-3 times a week is just not enough to keep the weight off.

Last night we went to our friends' house in Altoona. We met to say the Rosary and then they all played Volleyball and she had snacks and dips and we roasted marshmallows and had yummy drinks. It was a lot of fun. I have some pictures :)
The kids really loved Lucky, their dog, Michael realized he was taller than himself when standing on his hindlegs :)

Nice serve!

My entertainment :) Boy, that stuff is good and they had all different flavors, Blueberry being my favorite!

The kids on the swingset :)

Michael the monkey
This is one of my favorite things in their yard, this little water feature is so pretty and right next to it stands this huge weeping willow to sit under. Gorgeous!

So we had a good time, too much food and not enough sleep. The guys were back today pounding away outside looking for the leek in our pool line. What a mess!

Well, do you want to see some pages? You can always scroll past them if you don't :)
We had this nest of baby birds in our garage in an old breaker box and never knew! Amazing!

This was for the Itunes challenge at Designer Digitals. That was my Dad in Italy. We had such a great time on that trip

Well, that's all for now. The weather today is gorgeous, so hopefully we will spend some of the day outside. There is so much to do out there, yuck!

Have a wonderful weekend everybody and Happy Father's Day to all you Dad's out there !

You are such a good blogger, Anke. Makes my life sound like such a bore! LOL Love that the kids could have so much for for just 10 bucks. Looks like fun to me...only anymore it seems like I can slip and slide with no help from outside forces! LOL Still would love to give it a try!!!

Loved seeing your LO's again. They all are so pretty!!
