Spiderman's a slippery fella

The kids have a Spiderman Slip n' Slide and we finally had warm enough weather to warrant setting it up. Our kids are little sissies (hey! They're mine, so I can say that. And they come by it honestly anyway, as I'm not sure I was ever okay with throwing myself down onto the ground either...LOL), so it didn't really work out all that well unless Dan lifted them up and swooshed them down in one good toss. ha!

The spiderman hand is supposed to aim towards the slide part and shoot more water onto it, but it mostly just lays flat and half-heartedly sprays water into the air (there's plenty of water that sprays out along the length, so the hand part being malfunctional doesn't affect the slide in any way), and Connor considers it his own personal water founting, regardless of how many times I tried to shoo him away from it

they are having a blast... sadly, my dog would never allow such a thing in our yard... he would want to play, and pop it instantly. or try and save you from the sliding chaos.

ha ha ha! I love that personal water fountain. I never knew that spiderman's webbing was actually used for that :)

The drinking fountain effect is great. Your kids look like they had a lot of fun. I totally understand the sissy thing, though. My kids would be total sissies about the whole slip-n-slide thing, too. I don't know where they get it. I would LOVE one (except for the slipping-and-sliding into our cactus part, that is.)
