If there is one thing that we have done this summer, it's play in the water. Eli and Landon love to play in the water and it keeps everyone cool, so we do it almost every day. Here are a few pictures from the last couple of weeks.
Here we are at the splash pad. It has water shooting out of the ground, showering down from big poles, and pouring out of buckets. It takes Eli and Landon a little while to warm up to it, but they like it once they get used to it. It seems to me like it would be a wonderland for an almost-two-year-old.
They are very easily distracted by snacks, so we spend a lot of time sitting in the shade, eating goldfish crackers and sipping on a capri sun.
On the days that I don't have the energy to get all of our swimming paraphanalia together, we just play in the backyard. We fill up their little pool or put a sprinkler head on the hose and we just play at home.
They both love to drink the water that leaks out from the hose connection. Silly boys.
Dustin and I recently bought the boys a slip-n-slide. Best.Eight.Dollars.Ever.Spent.
Landon had a good idea to fill up his dump truck. It was all going fine until Eli took it away from him.
We also go swimming with our good friends, the Poseys, every once in a while. The boys got new life jackets and it has revolutionized the way we enjoy the pool. I no longer have to hold both of them up at all times. It is SO much easier. They can be pretty independent with these Puddle Jumpers.
Even baths have been a lot more fun lately. Eli and Landon request bubbles at every single bath and have a great time playing until they are prunes. I love bathtime.
