I went out and got a sprinkler for the girls to play in. I wasn’t sure what they would do, but we need something to beat the heat and I thought how fun a sprinkler would be. It ended up being great entertainment for $3! I have to say most the time they spent trying to drink the water instead of actually playing in the water.
They did a lot of standing right in the middle. Oh! and notice the watering cans. They spotted those across Lowe’s while I was in the search for a sprinkler. Of course we couldn’t leave Lowe’s without them and of course they both had to have their very own. To avoid the fights, I gave in.
There was one point in the sprinkler fun that one of the munchkins was trying to get Parker to join her in the water. She was having her own conversation with him. Even though Parker is a retriever he stays clear of water so in the end she gave up and just went right back to joining her sister in the water.
In the end I had two wet and tired girls. What made it for me was when they both turned to me and said “mommy, so fun…thank you!” Melted my heart! I love my girls!
