Is it really warm enough for the sprinkler?

Ethan thinks so. Every day he asks to play in the sprinkler or the pool, both of which I've already pulled out of the shed and utilized this year. And it's only April! Crazy, I know. But it kept my boys occupied for soooooo long, it was marvelous. And as you can imagine, I enjoyed my afternoon of lounging on the back patio immensely. Simon had never seen the sprinkler before, so he was very intrigued.

And yes, I know, it rather embarrassing...Ethan picked out a Dora sprinkler last year. Da, Da, Dora, Da-da, Da, Dora, DORA THE EXPLORER! And if you ask me, I can sing the whole theme song. Last night, while we were driving home from Dave's softball game, Dave and I were joking around about those movies, and we started quoting lines from them. And from the backseat, a small voice piped in, "You tell Dora and Boots, to go through the valley to get to the big yellow station!"

For some reason, it totally cracked us up that our 3 year old was quoting a movie. It wasn't that long ago that he learned to talk!

Doesn't this picture bring you back to the good ol' days?



Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Sounds like everyone was happy. Aren't you excited for summer? I think is makes a mom's job easier when we aren't all confined indoors.
Cade has a huge facination with water - anywhere, anytime. Maybe it's a boy thing?
