My favourite summer temperatures range from 18 to 24 degrees Celcius. Normally I would consider the recent 30+ degree weather to be uncomfortably hot but after a long spell of below normal temps it was quite welcome.
Last weekend I was able to get the deck painted – and dry before it rained. The children love the new deck space and the slip resistent paint is wonderful;
Yesterday I added several water play stations around the yard. Of course for the toddlers water and sponges meant – time to do some cleaning;
We finally got a chance to try out the new mist sprayer that I bought from Rona – love it!! The children were thrilled that it also creates rainbows (which I couldn’t capture in the picture).
With several water stations there was plenty of opportunity to move toys – and water – from one area to another;
There was a brief issue when one of the containers sprung a leak;
After several attempts to block the hole with rocks and twigs the children came up with this solution;
When the pot filled up it was dumped back into the bin – aptly displaying the ‘We Recycle’ label. 🙂
Water play is such a great way to cool off on a hot summer day.
