Elias has no fear. I took him to the park yesterday, and before I knew it he was at the top of the “BIG” kid slide. Since Elias is only two years old, I didn’t really think he’d go down it. As he sat at the top, I decided to snap a quick picture of him. Well by the time I pushed the button my son flew down the slide so fast that I nearly dropped the camera. As he neared the bottom he flew straight through a giant puddle.
Because of the slippery water he didn’t lose momentum at the end of the slide. He literally shot off the slide. Owen and I were staring at him with dumb expressions on our faces because we were so shocked. Poor Elias was laying on his back, soaking wet, unaware of what just hit him.
My new summer goal is to try to keep my children alive while visiting the park.
