This is from a couple weeks ago when it got really hot for a day or two. Benji didn’t quite get running through the sprinkler, but did enjoy pouring cups full of water into the grass.
These are from yesterday, when it got warm in the afternoon. Our neighbors came over for a bit to play. It’s so fun having a kid the same age as Benji right next door! Sadly, they’re only renting that house, and are already looking at homes to buy. Anyway, it didn’t take long for Jace and Benji to get into water playing. Benji’s shoes and jeans are still wet even after drying overnight. But boy did they have fun – and there was a lot less bickering over toys than usual, presumably because we had a nearly limitless amount of water. I suspect we have lots more days of getting wet in our summer to come.
After changing into dry clothes, Benji took a couple amusing selfies with my phone.
