Who cares if summer isn't officially here yet? I declare it summer already due to temps in the 80's every afternoon. (Actually, summer temps are usually in the high 90's, so this really is very typical weather for Spring.) After weeks of asking and begging, I let Jaina hook up the sprinkler this afternoon.
One reason its in the driveway is because we have more red clay than grass. Red clay + water = orange mud that stains both feet and clothing, so we elect to water the driveway instead. Most of the run off heads right to our grass (weeds) anyway, so its not a total waste of water.
This is what I get when I tell Jayce to look at the camera and say, "cheese!"
The girls take time out to pose while they were "sunbathing".
Umbrellas are good props to use when you are pretending that the sprinkler is actually rain. Unfortunately, the poor umbrellas couldn't take the abuse from the kids, and both of them broke. They were several years old anyway.
And this is Jayce with his newest obsession. I guess his love for all things pampering has crossed over into outdoor skin care as well. I finally bought him his very own bottle of kids' sunscreen so he'd leave the pricey bottle of Bullfrog alone! At least I know he won't get sunburned this summer!
