Why I want an Inflatable Water Slide . . .

MomDot and Little Tikes are generously giving a Slam'n Curve slide to one lucky winner that tells them why they really want/deserve to win one for their kids. While I don't know that we deserve one more than anyone else, I can definitely show and tell you why we want one. After you read my entry, if you can think of a good reason you should win, then make sure you go here and enter for yourself. The submission period ends May 30th, so don't wait too long. Good luck!

So, Why do we deserve this prize?
Let's look at the reasons I can share.
At first, you might think "No way!"
My view is definitely beyond compare.

ow, I know what you're thinking. "Why not swim in the lake? It's big, wet and right outside your door."

Come a little bit closer and let's take a look at what lies beneath the view I adore.
Under the water, you'll find the usual things: rocks, sticks and the occasional fish.
Random objects, like keys and trash . . . but never a hidden treasure like you might wish.
Very sneaky and quick, slithery and sleek, a guest I don't really appreciate.
Eyes that are beady, a tongue that is fast - SNAKES are our Lake Erie swim date!

o, our girls LOVE the water and always ask to go in, but sadly the answer is "No Way!"
Lake Erie Snakes might be loved by some, but they aren't on MY list of pets to stay.
I do have a sprinkler that we love to run through, but sometimes I wish we had more.
Disappointed - the girls on a hot summer day, when they look at the lake through our door.
Everyone loves the water and loves to have fun - and this slide looks just perfect for that.
Thanks for reading our plea and considering our request to have safe water fun where
we're at.

*Just a note: When I decided to write this I went outside oddly "hoping" that I'd see some snakes to get pics of for this submission. "Fortunately" they were out in full force today . . . there were probably between 20 and 30 snakes swimming around the dock. :o(


  1. Wow. Yuck....LOL

    i had no idea snakes were swimmers.

  2. I hope you win one. The snakes would freak me out.

  3. OMG - Snakes in the water??? That's it never swimming in any lakes the rest of my life. I totally hate snakes. Disgusting slimy, yucky creatures. ICK! I'd enter every pool, water thingy in the blog world before I'd go swimming in that water!

  4. LOL! I don't think ALL lakes have water snakes, but Lake Erie definitely does. I think I have entered every pool/water slide blog contest, but not luck yet. I'll keep at.

  5. Thanks all for your positive comments! It is as creative as I get these days! :o)

  6. Wow, this is so sad that these little girls want to swim and they can't.It broke my heart! Those snakes are so SCARY!!!!! I hope you win, because your girls really deserve it!
