I saw these photos from the Fourth go by on my screen saver and figured I'd post them. Two of my older nephews were supervising the setup of a fancy-schmancy slip and slide for a younger one. The hose plugged into it and sent a spray over a little blowup tunnel.
Isabella was helping them check it out. Now for the first run.
*Note the 3-D goggles.
Hmm, the Buzz house wasn't supposed to travel with the slider. Obviously another cousin is required for consultation.
The pit crew discussion.

Dog is my co-pilot
Success! 3 men, 2 dogs and 1 small boy made it happen.
Later, one little girl solos.
Things seemed a little simpler 25 years ago for Shoeshine and Sectaurs.
