Sprinkler time

Pin It
What child does not enjoy running and playing in a sprinkler on a hot Summer day? With school starting back, I realized today the hot summer days of 2010 are numbered. I began thinking of all that we would soon no longer be able to do with fall approaching and sprinkler time came to mind. With having a new little one to watch after this summer, we didn't get to do all of the things we wanted with our two year old and I realized today that she had yet to experience that simple pleasure. Before lunch, while my youngest was taking her morning nap and Elena was watching her hour of Sesame Street, I sneaked out into the back yard to fill the wading pool and set up the sprinkler. At lunch I told her I had a surprise for her. She was so excited to get to put on her bathing suit and splash around!

let's see how much water we can catch

note the tongue in this one!

run Elena, run!

Isn't it life's simple pleasures that give us the most joy sometimes? I know that was the case today when I saw her little face light up. It made me so happy to know that I played a part in putting it there.
