Friday's Foto Finish Fiesta

It's been a couple of weeks since I've posted a Friday Foto because I just haven't had any to share but I'm back this.

Today when I picked the kids up from the sitters Emma ran up to me and asked if I would get the pool out when I got home so her and Ian could swim. I tried to explain to her that even if I got it out the water would be freezing cold and no fun to swim in. Of course she was not happy about this at all. I did have an idea that made her happy. I told the kids if they were good and ate all their dinner I would get the sprinkler out for them.

So after a delicious meal of turkey Cheddar Brats and potato chips (it was a really long day at work) I kept my promise and hooked the sprinkler up out back.



As you can see Ian figured out if he grabbed the antenna of the bugs thing he could move them where ever her wanted and soak is sister. Usually something like that would have caused a fight but tonight Emma was perfectly fine with it.

Now it's your turn, go over to Candid Carries and share a fun summer picture with us.

That's a great memory for you guys to cherish. (Brings back a few memories of us as kids doing the same thing!)

What a great shot! Nothing says summer like kids in a backyard sprinkler (a little too cold up here for that yet, but it will be soon).

I love your daughter's request and reaction to the pool. My kids are the same; no concept about the pool water warming up. I think they view it like the city pool (forgetting of course that the water has had time to mellow). Thanks for sharing and making me look forward to summer.

Sometimes my kids would prefer the sprinkler to the pool! :)
It is SO hot outside though, a sprinkler, a pool, or just a slobber bath from the dog would work! :)
