Instead of coming the the slide via the water slide, Sabby lost her nerve along with some dignity and Grammy/Aunt Kathie brought her down the stairs. Aunt Kathie told me quietly she was almost relieved she didn't have to go down that slide too. Well as it turns out, She was afraid.
Grammy & Ema
This smaller slide was much more suited to Sabby. The slide was located in the Congo Rapids section, where Gran (that'd be me) went in the water too.. WITH my camera so I was real worried about slipping. ONLY in Phoenix where the temperatures are closer to those in hell, would I don a bathing suite AND go out in a public place in said bathing suit. Not sure why my red head thought the goggles were necessary. She'll HATE this picture some day... which is why I'm keeping it.
Grammy, Ema, Kat Sabby pause in their day of fun for a picture for Gran. Sabby's drinking a blue icee Popa bought her..
Which resulted in blue teeth for the above photo.
Before leaving the park, Grammy (that'd be Kathie) said she was facing that first slide no matter what, BEFORE we left...
So up the stairs they went again.. This time, I informed the Sabbs she was staying down with Gran, since Aunt Kathie had had enough step exercise for the day.
First, Ema, water slide rider extraordinaire came roaring down the center slide.. This was not, by the way, the biggest slide Ema conquered yesterday.
Then, after a bit of a pause, where Uncle Rob and I thought maybe she'd be coming down the stairs after all, Aunt Kathie aka Grammy, came roaring down the slide, face filled with terror. But come down she did! Well Done Kathie! Gran did NOT come down the slide. Only the little ones for Gran yesterday. As a note here... There IS a better picture of you coming down that slide Kathie, but in keeping our relationship close and loving... I WONT post it on my blog.
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog today.
