On our way back home yesterday, we were delayed in San Jose for 2 hours. Normally, its not a huge deal but with a baby its not good — for the parents. But Sydney had a ball! They have a “kidport” as seen here. Notice the familiar face at the top of the slide?
Dad spent the next few hours running in circles around this thing. Syd would climb up the stairs, run across the top, and sit at the top of the slide and wait for me. When I would wave her on, she would fly down the slide in a semi-uncontrolled free fall. She learned that if she laid all the way back, she would go a lot faster. So that is what she did — over and over and over.
