Now I'm a grown up and I still don't have a pool. I've been contemplating all summer about a kiddie pool but never committed. While we were on vacation, my sister's neighbor (formerly known as my parent's neighbor) gave Grant a gift of an Octopus Sprinkler.
It looks something like this:
And it's pretty freaking fun.
We didn't get to use it on vacation, but that's ok because there was lots of swimming to be done. But not long after we got back home I decided to bust it out of the package. It was a hot day but luckily there was a shady spot in the front yard so we set up there. I got Grant in his [adorable] swimming gear and me in my [not so adorable] swimming gear and headed outside. He was leery at first, didn't quite know what to make of it. So started running through it to show him how fun it was. He caught on pretty quick.
|He liked grabbing the arms and spraying them like a hose.|
|My favorite picture of the day, a bit out of focus but I love it |
because it shows how incredibly happy he was!
|My second favorite picture of the day. Look at that face!|
|His little shorts were soaked so I just let him run|
around in his swimming diaper. CUTE!
