the day he was finally tall enough for the big slide!


One Tuesday, when David and I were having time by ourselves while Cora was at preschool we had finished our math and reading for the day and I decided to make a spur of the moment trip to Focus on the Family.  We had been listening to their radio theater production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and I wanted David to get to experience the Narnia room there with the wardrobe.


When we walked into the building they told us that unfortunately the slide wasn't open that day because they were short staffed.  We went and enjoyed the Narnia room and a few of the other activity areas.  Right as we were about to leave they came over the PA system and announced that the slide would be open for a short time!  


David had patiently waited as his same age cousin shot up in height ahead of him and was able to ride.  We went to measure him that day and he looked right on the line to me.  I was hoping that the workers thought right on the line was tall enough as well.  


Sure enough we climbed the three flights of stairs and they pronounced him good to go!  He was so excited!  


He went by himself the first time and then I asked if grown-ups are allowed to go too and they said "yes!" so we both went down the second time!  It was a lot of fun!!  



Have you ever visited the Focus on the Family visitor's center?

That's so exciting! And good for you for trying it too! I tried it once and had to lay at the bottom for a minute until the world stopped spinning!!

We did--before we had kids. We went there the first summer after we were married. I thought it was so neat.
