Thirty-two!

White hot coals...I counted. Grilled for lunch and that will free up the evening for last minute rally details and baking for tomorrow's MOPS brunch. 

32 fence posts......the house on the left corner is ours....and I guess THIS is what Ms. K meant by "landscaping is the owner's responsibility". ::snort:: They sort of mow in a haphazard manner.

"The Slide" - Misawa Citizen's Forestry Park

We've been waiting for a cool day to explore a few parks in the area.  Today was the day. I spent the a.m. working on Rally sessions. We called Twyla to see if she and the boys could play while Jared was at football. They came!


This  tall slide is found at the Misawa Citizen's Forestry Park. The park features nature trails, cabins, sports fields, an onsen, a playground and a giant Astro Turf slide. ::snort:: 


The slide is made up of green, broom-like panels....zip tied to a frame over astro turf. They do slides WELL here. 

After the first climb to the top and slide down, several kids were heard to say, "This is hardly worth the climb." That changed as they experimented with various sliding platforms and positions. 












View from the top of the slide - though I didn't climb that high!

Twyla did, but I won't share the video without her permission....I did go up 33 steps...next time the top.

Tips we learned in case you want to visit the slide: bring plastic to slide on.....carpet squares on top of the plastic provides a bit of comfort....take your shoes off and you can more easily control your destiny....

This is going to be a great winter hill to visit.
