Post Chunklette is SE7EN
What's in the box? PRESENTS!

Today is the chunklette's 7th birthday. Some of you might be saying to yourself, "WHAT? ALREADY?!" Yes, already.

She invited a bunch of friends over to the house and I constructed a makeshift waterslide in the backyard out of a few tarps. I poured a bunch of baby soap and water on it, and then let the kids slip and/or slide. I did a little of that myself, and I may have damaged something, but I'll have to see how I feel in the morning. I didn't measure it, but it's somewhere close to 80' long by my best guess. The kids had a great time, and no one got hurt. Well, the n00b got hurt, but not on the waterslide. He was jumping on his bed and fell off, and now he has a big knot on his head. I didn't get to take a lot of pictures since I spent most of the time working the thing (keeping it wet, helping the smaller kids, etc), but I did get a few.

This should give a sense of the scale:

And these should give a sense of how much fun it was:

This should give a sense of the speed potential. This is my nephew, and he went so fast he shot off the end and into an inflatable slide/pool that my brother in law brought for us to use as well:
Image

It's all over now, and I'm so tired I can hardly move. The n00b has already crashed out, and I think everyone else is pretty close too. We have a lot of leftover ice cream, but all the cake is gone.

There are a few more pics here: http://picasaweb.google.com/dan.a.taylor/June2010#

Oh man, I'm so jealous. I can't believe the chunklette is already 7.

Well, she's probably jealous of your bear with a hat.

Happy birthday to Chunklette. You're a good dad, that thing looks like the most fun ever.

My feelings exactly.

I love the picture you posted on Facebook of the completed slide with the n00b standing on it. It just reeked of trouble.

None of them even look 7. They look younger.

You LIE!!!

I can remember talking to her in the lobby of Metroid Prime: Hunters and how tiny and young she was. Obviously she's still young, but she must've been in a quite a rush to become the girl in those photos. Tell her "Mr. Grand" wished her a happy belated birthday!

No, YOU LIE. I have never played Metroid Prime: Hunters, and there's nothing you can say to make me admit otherwise.

(But ok, yeah, I'll tell her)

HOW are your kids EVEN THAT CUTE

I would kill for a slip'n slide that monstrous, too. You're doing the dad thing clearly on a professional level, Chunk.

I like the juxtaposition of a movie title about a serial killer with an insanely cute set of family pictures (and a badass water slide).

If I come to NC to visit you some time Dan, and that slide isn't up. Consider our friendship over.

I'd say it's pretty neat your kids are about as old as the boards and MM, hehe.

Whew, it's a good thing I didn't say you did then, otherwise everyone would know!

And by that, I mean I plan on bringing them, and if they act the same as they did the last time we went on a trip, you can have them.

Post Re: Chunklette is SE7EN
I REALLY REALLY wanna go to Magfest this year because Grant Kirkhope is going. But honestly, I don't know if Dark and I can afford it. Working at the university makes it hard to get a lot of hours or time off. =/

there's probably only like a 25% chance of us going because of that, but I wanna go like 127% lol

The chunklette was VERY upset that she couldn't go to Seattle with me, and given the n00b's new found obsession with all things Mario Bros, I don't see how I can get away with not bringing them. We thought about it last year, but the numbers weren't right (it would have cost 10x more to bring them - seriously), but my wife's college roommate lives in DC now, and there's an open invitation for them to stay with her, so we'll see. The primary concern my wife has is will she have access to the indoor pool at the hotel. The answer is, of course, yes absolutely.

So, yes, I'll probably cart the whole lot to MAG. Heaven help me.
