Sprinkler Park!

Earlier this month, the kids got to enjoy (sort of) their first trip to a sprinkler park. Of course, I did not attempt this excursion alone! Michelle and her kids went with us and Kim met us there. I absolutely could not have done it without their help! Actually the trip was their idea in the first place!

Jonathan was really the only one who truly enjoyed himself. He had a blast walking through all the sprinklers and getting totally drenched. Thomas probably would have liked it more if he had been walking better at the time. As it was, he crawled mostly and that wasn't very comfortable on his knees or the tops of his feet. Occasionally he would find a nice puddle to splash in where he wasn't being constantly sprayed and would have some fun. Zachary and Reagan each got wet once and then didn't want to have anything else to do with it. I was surprised that Reagan didn't enjoy it more, but Zachary was no surprise at all. It took him awhile to learn to like the pool where water is not constantly squirting at you, so I didn't expect him to be too excited about sprinklers everywhere!

Checking it out from a safe distance

David had a great time!

Abby had a great time!

Jonathan had a great time!

Thomas had fun some of the time!

Zachary preferred to stay with Kim

Reagan is not so sure...

...on second thought, I'll just stay with Mommy!

Hey, Reagan, what are they doing out there? It doesn't look fun to me at all!

I don't know, Zachary! Don't they understand it's all wet and it keeps splashing you in the face! Let's stay over here where it's dry!

How fun!!

It used to take Josh a long time to warm up to the splash pad...Emma's still not crazy about it. Callie LOVES it! :)

I can't believe how big the kids are getting - they're all just too cute!!
