Joe has never been afraid of slides, large or small, at the park. He is much more daring than his sister was at this age. It might be because I am more relaxed about the whole park thing since he is the second but I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that he is fearless! He's taken some pretty big "diggers" at the park and had some gnarly bumps and bruises but he always gets right back out there within a few minutes!
Last night he finally went down the really big, tall, steep slide. There is a slide similar to this at a local elementary school that is getting taken down because of injuries but I let him try it just the same. Here was his reaction:
I'm curious to see if he'll ever want to go down this one again ;)
