Here Comes the Sun

And 70 degree weather!

Slide + Tarp + Water Hose = Slipping Sliding Fun!

Trenton has been asking all week if he and Charlotte could play in the sprinkler.

Today was finally warm enough for some water play, but I had something different than a sprinkler in mind.

A slide + a tarp + a water hose and some tape

Slide + Tarp + Water Hose = Slipping Sliding Fun!

Oh my gosh.  My kids could have played in this all day!

Charlotte’s second trip down the slide:

She was upset that got water in her eyes and got her hair wet.  But that didn’t keep her from having fun splashing around on the tarp!

Slide + Tarp + Water Hose = Slipping Sliding Fun!

Trenton, on the other hand, loved getting as wet as he could on the slide.  He took a couple tumbles, but always came back up smiling and ready to go again!

But just as our warm sunny day had to come to an end, so did our backyard fun.

Slide + Tarp + Water Hose = Slipping Sliding Fun!

And one kid was obviously more understanding than the other!
