Wild Water Fun!

Apparently I've been giving the kids a little too much freedom in the backyard since we've fenced everything in. I was in the house feeding McKenna and chatting with Amy while the boys were outside figuring out how to turn on the hose (now what am I going to do for the rest of the summer??). By the time we got outside both of them were totally soaked. So we went with it and decided to drench them! They ran and squealed and begged for more for more than half an hour. Check out the sheer delight on their faces in these pictures!

I love spontaneous fun like that! I bet this afternoon will be one of the kids' favorite memories for years to come!

We had that experience last summer - very fun that day, and then the boys were give STRICT instructions about asking permission to turn the hose on...can you imagine the water bill?? So fun though!
