And the winner is!




And the winner is....
Me!!!!
According to Ethan today I was named the best mom ever. Which is a huge improvement since I am pretty sure every day this week he has told me I am mean. (this is usually right after I have fined him some of his allowance money for some rule he has broken!) But none the less... Today I am the best mom ever! Want to know why? Because I bought my kids a new pool, slip and slide! (We have never owned a slip-n-slide, Larry says they kill the grass but I just couldn't help my self it was $9 and I wanted to slip-n slide after all it is 95 deg today!!!) Larry doesn't know I bought it yet. (He is still at work and I didn't tell him yet! SHHH no one tell! I figure if we get it out play with it and put it away it shouldn't KILL the grass. It smooshes it and we have a sloppy yard now but isn't it worth it? My hope is he won't be to mad.... We will see. Anyway I have video proof that Ethan said I am the best mom ever, and thought I would share some of this very fun day! (Yes I slipped and slided and yes right on it, it says not for children 12 and up I am only as tall as most 10 year olds, well the short ones anyway! But lets not bring weight into the equation!) So here are a few pictures of our wonderful day!

You are such a good blogger. I took pictures today of our outside wet water fun but haven't blogged them yet.

You are the coolest mom ever! I sure wish I'd had a slip-n-slide. And, I'm sure he'll only be mad until he sees how much fun your kiddos have on it. He can't be too mad after that. It's too adorable to be mad!

It is Saturday morning and he still doesn't know! I am not going to tell him unless he catches us or looks at the blog and then it will just be funny! (I am not typically sneaky but I just wanted to see if I could get away with this one!) I only blogged them last night because we had 3 extra girls staying the night and Larry worked really late and I was up.... nothing else to do!!!

So fun!!!! I want a slip in slid too. I had one in my cart at Walmart the other day and then realized... I don't even have grass!!!!" It would just be a muddy mess. We want to slide on it when we get there!
