Day 4- Fourth of July Fun in the Sun

If you are just joining us, we are on Day 4 of the "31 Days of Play" challenge.

On this very hot Fourth of July, we had a fun afternoon playing in the backyard kiddie pool, and, yes, even Mama joined in on the fun. While there are no photos to prove that I participated, I believe you would be grateful that I spared you the sight. However, we splashed in the water and hosed each other down while Daddy watched from the safety of the lawn chair holding a sleeping Annabeth.

I think the girls were pleasantly surprised that Mommy was getting soaking wet too. And I must admit that the play was cathartic for me. It had been a rough morning with early risers, swarms of ants, very high temperatures, and burnt ice cream, and I really needed to let off some steam in more ways than one!

Kate, the priss, and little sister Cora, the clown
What a stinker!

But look at that sweet face... Irresistible!

After our wild rumpus with the water hose, we enjoyed hot dogs, fresh corn-on-the-cob, baked beans, fries, and, yes, homemade Oreo ice cream. What a wonderful day of play!

Did you play with your kids today?

Blessings to you,
