So it never ceases to amaze me how different Daniel and Hannah can be! She is so much like me, and he is so much like Brent at times. This video clip says it all...notice how Daniel zooms down the slip 'n slide like nothing at all. And then notice how carefully Hannah manuevers her way down in the safest possible manner! When I talk with them on the phone (they are still at Grandpa and Grandma's house) the slip 'n slide seems to be a favorite thing to play with so I imagine Hannah has gotten more daring as she's gotten used to it. I despise anything where I'm not stable and on sound footing. I don't like to rollerskate, skateboard, rollerblade...nothing where I'm out of control, I don't even like to run and slide on the ice like most people do...I perfected the penguin walk! She is so much like me, it's scary! I remember going down our slip 'n slide the exact same way as a kid, but I never got brave enough to just throw myself down face first onto a slippery wet piece of plastic!

We had slip n slide when I was little, too! Unfortunately I am too old to remember exactly how I manuevered down that thing. : (

We loved our slip and slide when we were kids...and although I wasn't afraid to throw myself down it, I was just as coordinated then as I am now...not a pretty picture! David and Abigail love their slip and slide, too...how is it that we are old enough for our kids to enjoy the things we played with "back in the day"?

Great video. Looks like Hannah's enjoying it even if she's not throwing herself down. Kara's the same way. She tiptoe's to the end of the slide and then falls on her rear in the wading pool.
