Sprinklers

We set up the boys new sprinkler today. They have been begging to play with it for a couple of weeks now and for whatever reasons we just hadn't gotten around to it. So today was the day.
It started out tame enough.
Well, I say tame. It didn't take them long to figure out they could make the water squirt down the slide and create a water slide.
And from there it didn't take daddy long to figure out that he could put the slip and slide at the bottom of the play set slide to create a longer water slide.
And there you have it
Extreme sprinkler'ing.
And of course, where you have water and dirt
you have mud. Mud that ends up in hair and faces and nails and ears.

After we came in and got cleaned up it was watermelon time.
We love watermelon! Well, all of us except one.
Chris really can't stand it. He asked me if there was anything I could put on it for him to make it taste better. Ummm.....well, some people put salt on it but I have never understood that. He didn't want to try it. The boys and I don't get it. We think watermelon is one of the best foods ever.
And baby thought it was pretty awesome too!
I realized today when I looked at the calendar that I completely missed the 13 month post for Eliza on Saturday. I started to do it tonight but didn't have many pictures of her from today. I will try to take some tomorrow and do a 13 month post, but don't hold your breath. My track record for posts during the week isn't too consistent right now.
