This summer, I created a predictable weekly schedule so I wouldn't have to waste too much brain power figuring out what to do for fun.
Every Monday, we went to an indoor playground (usually McDonald's) to play with friends. Tuesdays were Library days. Wednesdays were home days. (Hey, Mama needs a break sometimes.) Thursdays were water days. We hit the Splash Park or went swimming. Fridays we always had a playdate.
We spend a lot of time at the Splash Park in the summer time. Well, at the end of summer, I found a new place- this Fountain Park. The water pops up in a rhythmic pattern. Very fun!
The kids would run into the middle, then race back out to try to beat the sprays."Look at those crazies! They think they're not gonna get wet? Watch this!"
The boys get caught as big sprays shoot up all around them. Neener, neener, neener! Elena saw that coming.
What Elena doesn't know is: Daniel got exactly what he wanted. A big spray in the face. He loves it!
Lydia just marched around the outside edge of the fountain. She's so predictable. Not a risk taker, that one.
Who knew that H20 could be so much fun?! My kids did.
