The big present we bought for Savannah was a slide for the backyard. It also came with a basketball with hoop, soccer ball with “goal” under the hoop and a football with an opening to throw it through.
Marc put it together the night before her birthday and covered it with sheets so she wouldn’t see it until we were ready. She was actually outside earlier but didn’t try to take the sheet off (?!?). After breakfast we brought her back outside for the unveiling. It only took a little help from Daddy and she got the sheets off. Well, she got the first sheet off then needed convincing to get the other sheet off and not just play with the ladder side.
It only took a second for her to try it out with Daddy at first.
Then we showed her the other parts of it. She checked it out and shot one hoop.
Then it was back to the slide! VIDEO: http://youtu.be/JgPJAYUlOWU
Later, only after we did a count up and yell “GO!”: http://youtu.be/9-pFPrufx2o
The past couple days EVERYTHING goes down the slide – the balls, her chalk, sand toys. They all get a count up and “GO!” as well.
