We spent the day playing in the pool with some of our very sweet friends. The pool we were at had a fairly good sized tunnel water slide.

Jake said he wanted to go down the slide so I walked with him to the top. Getting ready to get in with him for us to go down together...he says "my do it by myself."  So I let him go 1st and then a minute later I came down the slide.

As soon as he was out of the water enough to talk he said he was going to do it again.
This time I stayed in the pool while he walked up the hill to the top of the slide. (can you see Jake walking up the hill?)
And went down again....

Honestly he probably went down the slide, climb the steps out of the pool, & walked back up to the top of the slide close to 100 times!!!


He had no fear and even when he would come down side ways, or on his belly, or facing backward...and even when we heard a loud thump inside the slide as he was coming down....

Every time he got to the end of the slide he would say "I am going again."

It was great to watch him have so much fun...and I will say the water slide is a ton of fun!!


  1. He's 2, right? He really is brave! I don't think our almost-4-year-old would attempt that by herself. ;)

  2. That's awesome Melissa! So glad he had a great time! Nic enjoyed the water slide at the Disney resort we stayed at too last year. He's already asked if the resort we're staying at this year has one! Fearless, these boys!

  3. That's amazing, Melissa! He truly is fearless! Austin won't even go down a waterslide by himself, and he's 4 1/2!!! What a cute boy you have!
