Somewhere along the way, it became a family tradition. The kids don’t believe it’s summer until we drop the hose into the backyard pool and start getting wet. This will probably be the last photo of the kids until September without any sunburns, blisters, or extra freckles. And that’s with me being the Sunblock Police stationed at the backdoor.
We’re already scheduling swim dates for all their buddies. Jordi and her buddy are doing the water gymnastics, and of course, Sean grabbed for the weaponry immediately. And I need to stock up on groceries…all that sun and water leads to hungry hippos.
