Today I took the kids to Spencer's for ice cream. It was so nice outside, we decided to eat at the tables. McKenzie got a winter breeze, Matt a chocolate cone and I got a hot fudge sundae. I love telling the kids stories of how Granny would bring us every Saturday for a treat and also how Marty and I would play at our friend, Stacy's house next door. Her parents owned Spencer's and we were allowed to get anything we wanted which usually included a hamburger and a hot fudge sundae. We would swim in their pool, then we would go over and get food. To a kid, that was awesome. After the kids played a little on the playground, we headed home to play outside. That is when McKenzie and Matt decided they really needed a slip and slide and that Matt would buy it for McKenzie's birthday. So off to Walmart we went with Matt's twenty dollars. Wow, slip and slides have come a long way! The one we bought has two lanes, a wall of water, and slide boogies to slide with so it won't be so hard on your stomach. They had a blast! David got home from work and decided he needed to get in on the action. So with his bad back and knees, he went for it and I have pictures to prove it. Oh my! We love summer at our house!!
