Bad parents, fun ride.

The instructions specifically state that this should be set up on a flat surface.

But, when you have a slope in your backyard that you hate in every other circumstance, how could we resist? Also?

Yes, we did put a slide at the top to make it extra fun. Don't report us. After all, it's not like we were doing this:

Hee.

Flat surface. Bah!

Looks like fun!

That looks like fun for sure. My husband wanted to set up a ski jump off the power box in our front yard. Its all about the fun factor :)

Hey I see you are using those IKEA bins. Are they working out? Did you have to get a liner for them?

LoriD said...

Chantal -
Nope, no liner. Just rocks in the bottom and soil on top. There's a plastic strip that you insert around the top that keeps it round. So far so good. You can see my onions and beans in that shot. I also did Roma tomatoes, green peppers, oregano, basil and cherry tomatoes.

I feel like I've become very repetitive, because every time I see pictures of your kids I say the same thing: THEY ARE SO CUTE. But they just really, really are. It's not just their adorable faces, although that helps--they also just have this happy, relaxed body language that makes them even cuter.

SO FUN. I wanna come over!

Also, your planter looks great!

Tessie said...

YAY! I love safety hazard pictures! That's practically the only kind I TAKE!

I wanna come over too.

*Gasp*

You have given me a virtual heart-attack. Oh god, Oh god. I canNOT look at that last picture.

I have serious height-phobia around kids.

GAH! Make it stop!

LoriD said...

Breathe Misty! There's actually a gently sloping hill behind the brick wall that leads to a level path and a forest. It just looks like they're sitting at the edge of the city!

Erin said...

SO FUN!

I'm coming over...

Mandy said...

apparently you need to have a block party so all of us can join in!!!

Oh my goodness, that last picture has me freaking out. Tell me it's not as steep as it looks.

As for the water fun - that looks safely hilarious :)

So was that a spiderman inflatable or a kid dressed like spiderman on the waterslide? Either way I'm kind of freaked out.

SLynnRo said...

Can I come over?

LoriD said...

manager mom - Hi! It's just an inflatable spidey... he shoot a "web" (water) at you on the way down.

Saly said...

That is so cool!! And probably way more fun than I ever had as a child.

And if you put some dishsoap on it, they'll go EVEN FASTER. Not that we were doing that this weekend....
