Woolastook waterslides and a race down to the big splash. This week's theme is "down" courtesy of Carmi at Written Inc. I couldn't resist reposting these shots from two summers ago....my son and his friend....two buddies who continue to compete with joy and energy....on the slides in the summer and on the court in the winter. On a cold February night, with snow all around us, it was a nice treat to revisit a day when we had the slides to ourselves....when rushing downward to cool off with abandon was the theme for a whole afternoon.
Sadly, the slides are closed down for good....unless someone new comes to town to refurbish the little park just down the road from where we live.
For more versions of "down" check out Carmi's site. I guarantee it'll make you feel the corners of your mouth turn UP.
ps. YES! I did race the two of them and I'm proud to say I beat the pants off the skinny little buggers! My splash was much more dramatic too! Unfortunately you will have to take my word for it. No pictures were taken of middle aged lady gracefully barrelling down the waterslide laughing like a crazy woman. I can't wait for summer!!!
