The water slide

Look what Tom picked up off Craig's List this week. We were planning to rent one for a party next week, but all the rental slides are huge, and it was cheaper to buy used than to rent for just one time, so we decided to buy. We had a trial run through today with Lukas and Natalie, and Nathan and Natalie, our neighbors down the street. It was a hit! We should get 8 years of use out of it (Konrad will probably tire of it by around 8 years of age), so it was well worth buying it. The only challenge is making sure it gets completely dried out before packing it away (water gets inside, too).

Here's what Konrad did while watching longingly as the big kids got wet...next year, he'll get a chance to participate!
