I had the best birthday party EVER! Renting this beast was the highlight of the party.
At two stories high, it was the main attraction. My mom was next to go down right after my boys (she’s such a kid at heart!)
Wheeee!!! Oh it may look like I’m scared, but I’m whoopin’ it up and having the time of my life on our own private water slide. Well, at least for 24 hours it was ours. Space Walk of Raleigh really owns the slide. But, Chris was gracious enough to let us keep it for a full 24 hours! Seeing the expression on my sons’ faces when they arrived home to find the slide blown up in our front yard was priceless.
I am still riding a high after the party. I was surrounded by the best family, friends and neighbors a girl could ask for. I am one lucky girl.
The adults and kids alike had a blast hurling down the slide. Even my mom and dad went down it!
If they can enjoy a giant waterslide in their 60’s, I’m fairly certain that I will too in 20 years. (Now you know where I get my youthful attitude from.)
A wonderful friend of mine made the birthday cake and I’m telling you, it was the BEST tasting cake I have ever tasted!
Chocolate cake with real strawberry filling and buttercream frosting. Yummy!
She even used my blog design as inspiration for the cake! It was beautiful. Oh and by the way, it may not look it, but this cake is huge! It feeds 80 people. We
scarfed it down like animals took our time eating it over the weekend.
If you live in the Raleigh area, you must look into having Kristen’s Cakes make you a cake. She’s just starting out, but her lack of experience has no effect on her cake making talent!
My very talented mom set up a station for creating artwork. It was a popular attraction with the kids (and a few adults.)
But, after an art lesson it was on to more sliding! Here’s Pretty Handsome Guy trying his best to get enough speed up to vault the end of the slide. There was only one adult who did manage to vault it. Of course, after he did, EVERYONE was trying to do it.
One note of caution to anyone thinking of renting a giant water slide. Be sure to pop some Advil after the party. You may be a little sore the next day.
