On Saturday we went to see this cute girl get baptized. Can you believe she is eight! I remember when she was a wee baby with curly dark hair.
After the baptism it was back to the Andersons house for yummy food and some water fun for the kiddos. Mindy had borrowed a big blow up water slide from her neighbor.
The kids started timing themselves to see how many times they could go down the slide in 1 minute. Well, my dad looks at my husband (Mr. Competitive) and says how many times do you think you could go down—well it was on after that. Dave donned his swim suit, my dad just jumped in in his jean shorts and we started timing.
Dave matched Syd’s record and my dad scored big with a backwards somersault that would have been a perfect 10 in the Olympics.
Did I mention this waterslide was not made for those over about 12 years old. The “older” kids about deflated it every time they climbed up and the awkwardness of getting their non-12 year old bodies off the slide was absolutely hilarious.
The little kids had a great time too.
Syd was in the water for about 4-5 straight hours thus earning her the nickname “water rat.”
The rest of us sat in the shade and thanks to an uncle who works at an ice cream factory ate and ate Fat Boy cookies until we were sick.
Baby Cohen made an appearance and we all ooooed and awwed over his cute bald head.
Thanks for turning eight Brynn so we could all have so much fun! Hope to top it when you turn nine.
