Pools, sprinklers, tables and bathtubs, oh my! These boys can't get enough waterplay. We've had unseasonably warm temperatures so it's been hot enough to go out in our suits even after dinner. Henry asks to play in the sprinkler every day. He calls his crocs "sprinkler shoes". Yesterday I even let him run through the water after Liam was in bed. Unfortunately the evening mosquitos really attacked him. He didn't seem to notice but I wince every time I see the bites covering his little body.
This is probably one of the last photos of this baby splash pad. The boys need something bigger now. I have lots of fun memories of our two summers with this playmat.
All in all, we had a great long weekend. A few times, I found myself with the momentary blues. My next door neighbors will move soon. With them goes our nearest support, our safety net, if you will. I'm sure that was the underlying reason for my tears, but mostly I found myself thinking those old, I don't deserve these two great children thoughts. I actually don't have much time during the day to stop and even think about where I put the car keys. Yet, late at night in the quiet house, I try to process my emotions. After an exhausting day minding the children, it's probably not the best time to judge my thoughts though.
