Life and Fun: Parks & Wading Pools

This summer was a laid back kind of summer. It was hot and dry in the mid-west, but that didn't hinder our fun at all.

A few mornings before the sun got too warm, we'd go to the small public park where the girls could get rid of some energy. 

Then after an afternoon rest, we'd get up and head out to the small wading pool that my mom bought for them to splash in. I love the fact that they are not too old for such simple pleasures as splashing in water. I spent the afternoons sitting beside the pool with a book. It was pretty close to heaven - 

We kept our schedule even during our
visit with my sister. We just had a new
splashing buddy to play with!
