I wanted to save it until closer to at least Gentry's birthday in June, but it's already getting pretty hot some days here in Georgia. So, we decided to go ahead and put it up for them to have some fun. It's very easy to put up, and other than it needing to be completely dry for putting away, it's fairly easy as well.
These boys had a ball, I'm here to tell you. They wore themselves completely out from around 12 until 3:30. I didn't even have to suggest a nap. They asked me to go inside with them because they were tired. It didn't take but maybe five minutes after drying off and changing clothes for them to be asleep, either.
We sat out under our carport while the boys played and grilled some ribs and chicken, and enjoyed some company, too. I especially like that their slide has the larger pool area at the bottom. I can go sit in it with them, or even put me a chair in it to get some sunshine while they play and splash me. :)
I think it's a great investment. Heck, it would have costed us $350 to rent a slide for just two days, and we only had to pay $399 for this one, tax free, and Wayfair even shipped it to us for free. Now my boys can play on theirs any time they want to, and we get to have some water slide fun for their birthday parties. I think it's going to be awesome. :)
