Today was a day of surprises. It didn't seem like anything extraordinary would happen - seemed like a regular day - until LaMar came home from work. "Papa" had brought Mia a surprise: a Nemo Slip 'n Slide. It is a bright yellow plasic slide with a blue bumper at the end with pictures of "fishies" (Nemo) on it. Mia quickly put on "my suit" and went outside with Papa. She watched with interest as he set up the new toy and connected the hose to it. She absolutely didn't know what to think of it - and absolutely didn't know how to slip 'n slide. Luckily, three little neighbor girls: Bailey, Sydney, and Cameron were only too happy to come over and show Mia the ropes. Being a bit older, they were savvy to the ways of the slip 'n slide, and soon Mia was taking turns sliding down the wet, slippery piece of plastic fun. See the fun unfold below as Katie tries to show her what to do at first, and then see how much fun she was having after some nice little girls came to show her how. A good time was had by all - especially me. I enjoyed most of all seeing "Papa"/LaMar having fun with his little granddaughter, while he gave her the time of her life. The best memories are always composed of such simple things, aren't they?
