layout a day
(fatherhood mini album - page 4)
day 14

pictures of silly fun times... roasting hot dogs & playing on one of those giant playland thingies. :) i can't be the only mom who has crawled through tunnels of a playland with her camera! (i just did it again on friday) i have the slide burn on my back to prove it!!! i mean, who listens to a bunch of 7 year olds tell you to go down the "black hole" slide cannon ball style to go faster??? apparently, ME! let me just tell you... as an adult who has recently tried this very stunt... it's not such a hot idea! you do race down the slide at super speeds, HOWEVER, if your shirt inches up at all, the slide will burn a good portion of the skin off your lower back on the way down. yowza! so the next time a 7 year old gives me advice on playland equipment... i think i will go with my gut, and slide down on my behind, which is ALWAYS covered!

oh right... weren't we talking about scrapbooking??? lol!

Love your work! This album is so very sweet. OWCH on the burn...I got one of those last spring on my elbow when I went down a slide with my younger daughter and it was painful enough. I can only imagine the discomfort you must be feeling.

You are one GREAT mom! :o)

If I knew fatherhood was "full contact" I would have worn my pads! There are some good memories wrapped up in those pictures. I got an idea, let's go camping when I get home!

Just a little tip. I take my gardening knee pads with me when I take Simon to one of those places. Sooooo much better! lol I too have hauled my camera through those tunnels and slides!
