Songer Family Reunion
Every year around the Fourth of July the Steve and Pat Songer Family gets together for two or three days of fun. Generally we are required to put on a talent show. Usually we do some fun craft for the kids. And always, the guys build a waterslide.
It has gotten taller every year. This year the platform was ten feet up in the trees on one side of the yard and the plastic reached all the way to the other side of the yard. It was about 150 feet long. (Only the very best bellywhoppers managed to get all the way to the end.) The kids slid down and then ran around and climbed up again non-stop for 3 or 4 hours the first day. And the second day. They took a break for Sunday, and then did it all over again on Monday. I believe Lissa was the most dedicated slider of all, even after she broke her arm and had to have a cast on.
