Dale played outside a lot today, and I went out briefly with Alan.
He climbed the ramp again, and rather quickly and skillfully this time!
I decided that instead of having to constantly reach above my shoulders to keep one hand on him at all times, it would be easier if I was just up in the play-thing with him. Dale was with us too, of course.
After we'd been up there for a few minutes, I thought it would be fun for Alan and me to slide down together.
It was going great until my feet were about halfway down, and I saw my right shoe leave a rather large streak of mud on the slide.
With both hands full of Alan and both of us moving at slide-speed, there was nothing I could do but slide right through the mud patch. Which left a nice big mud-smear on the backside of my pants. And the whole thing took less than 5 seconds!
We went inside after that.
I changed my pants.
