We're in the middle of a heat wave, which only makes me wonder just how hot July and August can possibly get. I think I heard yesterday that one day this week was the hottest day EVER on record for June in our area. Needless to say, we've been doing a lot of inside play and trips to the pool to try to keep cool.
Earlier this week, after we had dinner and before it was bath time, Jarrod hooked up the sprinkler to water the lawn and I jumped on the opportunity for making some summertime memories with the kids. I told Gavin we were going to play in the sprinkler and he said, 'But I still have my clothes on!' I had to reassure him that it was ok....that was all part of the fun. And off we went!
Riley loved it, too. I let her crawl around in the grass, and also scooped her up to run through with her. It felt so refreshing on a 100 degree evening.
I love making memories like this with the kids. It brought back so many visions of Megan and I running through the sprinkler in our yard as kids. I was so proud of Gavin, too. Running through a sprinkler last year would never have happened. He's slowly getting braver and braver about getting water on his face. I can't wait to do it again!
