Today we went to the splash pad for the first time this year.
My fond childhood memories of running through the backyard sprinkler come back to me as I watch the kids make their own memories in the cold water spray. So sometimes (if it’s just us there, and it’s really hot), I join in on the kids’ fun. At the very least, I stand in one of the icy pools of water.
My kids love the splash pad, and Norah, especially, is very courageous standing in the gushing water.
With school still in session, we had the splash pad to ourselves this morning, but we will be frequenting it all summer, along with the rest of the neighborhood.
What did you do as a child to cool off from the heat?
