A little more water play

Also, last May, before we realized that our "early" summer was going to be a record-breaking drought, I set up the slip n slide, and let the boys enjoy the simple pleasures of water play... Meanwhile I took photos with the sniper lens from far away, safe on the porch, away from the action.

Charlie had just turned the nozzle to "jet" and I tried to warn him to NOT shoot that into his mouth...

This was about .02 seconds later.

Oh, and BUBBLES! Another of life's simple pleasures. Thanks to the wonders of pinterest, I found a great bubble recipe...

1 1/2 quarts of water
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup liquid dish soap

And then, instead of a wand, why not tape together 3 or 4 straws? The kids love blowing bubbles this way!

Bubbles and water fights. Could there be any better way to pass a day? I think not.

Love these pictures.
