We had heard a rumor that the sprinklers at the local park turn on sometime after 8:00, but we hadn't ever been at the park at that late hour. Until the evening of 4th of July that is, when at 8:15 the sprinklers suddenly turned on! Lillian had so much fun frolicking in the sprinklers on that hot sticky evening. The frolicking was followed by a quick shower and a trip to view the fireworks with some friends.
Nathaniel has been getting his fair share of water play too. The water spigots for the sand box have been turned on at all the parks, and Nathaniel loves the wet sand. Not just playing and building with the wet sand, but rolling around in the muddy sand and smearing it all over his body. This boy loves textures and wet sand is right up his alley. Of course once he is covered with wet sand, he thinks it is yucky and demands to have his soggy clothes removed. After getting his clothes completely covered in wet sand he had to take a mostly naked ride in the bike seat back home from Eagle Park.
