Fun times at the Mc'Craribbean

Woo Hooo! Harrison's first slide!

Perfect sliding form, from Campbell ...keen eyed Russian judge gives her a 9.2...very good score, with this degree of difficulty!

Yesterday we had the great pleasure of a visit from the bodacious * Brent family from Baltimore, MD.
Master Harrison, age 8, will be entering 3rd grade this fall; Miss Campbell, age 4, will continue to delight us, with a variety of activities appropriate for a young lady of her standing in the community.

*bodacious; from The American Heritage Dictionary:
bo.da.cious adj. slang from Southern U.S.
1. Remarkable;
2. Gutsy.

Looks like a good time was had by all; enjoying fabulous Uncle Rick's Award winning %(award given by us, of course) re-purposed, re-engineered, portable Pool Slide.
The award winning feature, of Rick's slide, is it's ability to be rolled away on wheels back-stage so as to not detract from the beautiful Mc'Craribbean when play time has concluded.
~> Kid's, please do not try this at home!
All of the Big Kids volunteered their own personhoods as crash test dummies to assure said Pool Slide's saftey, before usage was approved for any darling precious small kiddos.
No film was produced to submit to America's Funniest Home Videos during these prototype test activities!
Why, who are these sun bathing Stars of the back yard?

Harrison Brent or Harrison Ford? Perhaps the Paparazzi will know...

Esther Williams?

...again, we'll have to consult with the Paparazzi for positive ID.

We are not equipped for a full array of track & field events here at camp Mc'Craribbean, though Harrison (and many others) were doing the Long Jump over Aunt Lori and into the pool!
And while Aunt Lori, did not come prepared to participate as both line judge & the actual line in the this spontaneous Water Word ~ Track & Field event: Long Jump Into Pool, she was bravely game for both!
Master Harrison's Long Jump form is already shaping up nicely, wouldn't you say?

Based on these outstanding results, am quite certain the Olympic Committee will want to add Water World ~ Long Jump as an exhibition sport on to their slate at the London Summer Games, 2012. Everyone ... keep practicing and get ready to pack your bags!

Aunt Lori, you are a trail blazing Super Trouper**, every niece & nephew's dream!

Folks, the Paparazzi has confirmed these stars are our own Campbellina & Hairball, The Magnificent.

Thank heavens, as we won't have to pay them S.A.G. daily rates for their good company! These sweet kiddos continue to work for food & pool far .... ha, ha!!

** Super Trouper; speaking of ABBA, can't wait to see Mamma Mia!with our girl posse. Opens this Friday 7/18/2008!

And where is Uncle Rick?
Now that his Super Slide has been placed successfully into action, he has transition into his role as Coach Rick, training athletes (Campbell & Bex) for Cirque's next Aqua Ballet; whose show name is top secret!
