The Little Sister

The other day, it was very hot. I wasn't feeling that great. I thought that it would be great fun for the kids if we got out the little pool and sprinkler. They could play nicely together, and I could just sit on the deck and watch them. Win, win.

All three girls had a blast.

They REALLY loved the sprinkler.
Bethie showed Sarah how to twist the hose so the water stops.

Sarah had a go at it.

But she wasn't very good at stopping the water. Bethie measured the height of the water coming from the sprinkler, and announced that Sarah would have to apply more pressure.

Bethie measured the height of the water again, and said that Sarah had done a wonderful job!

And then Sarah blasted Bethie.
And then Bethie, bless her heart, let Sarah do this to her over and over and over again. Just to make Sarah laugh. And I loved Bethie for it.

I am quite sure that one day, Sarah is going to be blasted in the face by one of the twinnies.

I am also quite sure that she won't be laughing then!

So cute! Sarah is asking for a blast in that last picture! And I LOVE their suits!

Oh sure, rub it in. Did I mention we're under a WATER BAN? Humph.

That is just too funny! Love that you got the picture of that ;) I wouldn't be laughing if that happened to me....what a great big sis!

Sounds like the girls had a perfect day. Love it!

Thank you.

Bethie and Katie are both awfully sweet to Sarah. They are very kind.

Bibliomama: Sorry about the ban. Where I live, the water is kinda hit or miss whether we can use or drink it. Water is free here, but we can seldom use it!
