Saturday Snapshot

Did I tell you about the time last month when  the Handyman decided to show his grandkids how to do a slip and slide the correct way?
No?  Well......

He started out on his knees---even tho his knees aren't that great.

Then he decided for some unknown reason to flop down on his stomach-- like he did when he was a kid:  50 or so years ago.
A body changes a lot from the time you are 13 to now.
It doesn't bounce back as easy.

And you really can't get up very quickly!
And you might even crack a rib or two.
Silly Grandpa.
(that was the official stance-- silly grandpa.  But when I was alone with him, it was more like,  WHAT the hell were you thinking??!!)

None of them tried his example.

At least when you are in your 30's,  you try to stay on your feet at least!

Slip and Slides!
Guaranteed for an afternoon of fun--- and a trip to the emergency room.

He didn't actually go to the emergency room---oh no, that would have been admitting he was too old to play on a slip and slide.
He was just in terrible pain for a few weeks.
Silly Grandpa.

What the HELL was he thinking?!

Boys will be boys, even when they should be old enough to know better. I'm glad an emergency room wasn't in the cards! Looks like the kiddos had a great time.

That slide looks like a lot of fun. Congrats to the people who tried to stay on their feet- it's hard!
Thanks for sharing!

Hopefully he will find other--less painful--ways to be a kid at heart! Lovely series of shots with so many smiling faces.

My husband made the mistake of sliding on our slip and slide on his belly too. It took a while for him to heal from that. LOL
