Hey Craigs!

This is the comment I would put here if people who don't necessarily run around in grins were allowed to comment (HINT HINT):

Holy smokes! When you said indoor slide, I was picturing the swing-set variety! I can't even show that post to my kids or they're going to go all Flat Stanley on me and try to mail themselves to NC!

I'm totally crashing their housewarming later this year. There must be some reason PayPal needs to send me to North Carolina!

Derek said...

Fair warning to my family-members-in-grins. I thought the slide was so cool, I shared it with a couple of my favorite online forums. Enjoy the extra traffic!

Trina said...

Now they'll never open up comments!

Derek said...

I don't think we were ever in danger of that. Though the response in other forums has been favorable-

"*adds another item to "Reasons to get a House" list*"

and

"I would love to add this to the house I'm remodeling, in the form of a slide from the 2nd floor into the backyard pool."

Well, the slide almost makes up for that fantastic Hassell logo.

All the Hassells are warmly invited (and encouraged) to visit -- except for Zach. We don't want anyone with HIS track record anywhere near the Craig Super-Slide!

Derek said...

When do you expect to have it done? I'm sure you could use an extra pair of hands in the kitchen at Thanksgiving ;)

Big Momma said...

Uncle Bob says we should be in by the first week of November or so. Of course, he didn't specify November of which year. You know, we were still trying to finish that Sonora house as we were moving out -- 20 years after breaking ground. But Derek, you are always welcome in the Craig kitchen! (Your siblings, too!)

Since I can't comment on YOUR blog...

Gizmodo must have picked up the story from Fark.com. Next thing you know, Ann Curry (Ashland High Grad!!) from Dateline NBC will be knocking on your door!

The Craigs have officially generated buzz on the Internet, something the Hassells have yet to achieve!

I have a new favorite comment-

"Oh, and did anybody else read the rest of the posts on their blog? What a friendly, warm, well-adjusted family they seem like.

What FREAKS. Nothing like the rest of us."

Trina said...

Erm . . . not all of the comments at those links are PG, in case you'd like to be warned. But thanks Derek for highlighting the good ones here.

I LIVE here and no Craigs told me about their super-sweet slide! What else are they hiding from me?? And Derek, if you come, I'll be happy to do the airport pickup thing. And did you know that Ann Curry was in my class at AHS???

Big Momma said...

Well, PJ, since I usually meet you in the temple, it just doesn't seem very appropriate to talk about slides while we're trying to be reverent. But you live close enough to come try it out! (Hint...hint...to the rest of the Hassell progeny -- NC is a GREAT place to live...or at least visit!)

I guess I need to start looking at plane tickets to Raleigh!
