I went to FHE this evening with the understanding that there would be a pond to swim in and a slide for umm, sliding. Generally I share Dr. John Dorian's philosophy although I have more issues with large fish and pond scum than serpents. Anyhow, despite my initial misgivings I decided to bring my swimming suit just in case I changed my mind.
I am SO glad that I did! The slide was made out of old vinyl signs draped over hay bales and all of that was placed on a fairly large hill above a pond. It was so much fun! I only wished that I had my camera out sooner because by the time I got it out of the car and I was in my suit, the sun was already going down. Here are some pictures anyway, sorry about the quality. My awesome roommate Clarissa accidentally made two short films as she was trying to take my picture. I was happy with the mistake.
The pond with the slide and the picnic pavilion:
The brave souls congregating at the top of the hill, awaiting their turns.
Sliding down on a pillow in a garbage bag, effectively slippery and cozy.
The splash down in the pool. I managed to go down the slide several times and NEVER go under nor did I swallow any of the water.
And the videos
