wild slide woman

While we're on the subject of slides, this one happened to be part of the garden exhibit as well.

It was the cutest thing, built right into a little hill you had to climb to get to the top. She got the hang of it pretty quickly and a couple of times she went so fast she flew right off the end of it and landed in the mulch.

(Check out that hair whipping in the wind!)

Because we're those parents and because she's our first and only child, we also have a video of this momentous occasion. Sorry it's a little Blair Witch-esque. It was shot on our top of the line phone camera.

Have a great Tuesday!


  1. Looks like Reese is learning out to control acceleration and braking skills on the slide. True sign of a future roller-coaster fanatic!

  2. That is so cute. I love the slide. What a great idea to have it build into a hill. No falling off of a ladder. And if you fall off the side you don't fall far.

  3. Rob- I can only hope she'll love roller coasters as much as her parents! Otherwise she'll have to wait with all the stuff while we go on the ride. :)

    PW- I thought it was clever too! It almost makes me want a hill that steep in my backyard. (As long as I'm not the one who has to mow it!)
