30 Days of Beauty-Day 24: Water on a Hot Day

Hooray for Water Fun!

When we woke up today, we still did not have any power in our house.  It was hot and humid inside.  I ran to Starbucks for caffeine and breakfast sandwiches for all of us.  When I came home, I decided to sit outside to enjoy my breakfast since it was much cooler outdoors.  That was when my daughter-in-law, Claire, had a brilliant idea.  Let's fill the turtle sandbox with water since we haven't put sand in it yet!

We filled it up with water, and Claire took Tyler, who is one, out of his walker to let him splash in the water. However, Tyler decided to just step right into the pool-clothes and all!  Now this water was straight from the hose so it was cold, but he loved it.  When his sister, Abbey, saw that she stepped right in as well.  Claire and I were so surprised.  She was laughing so hard!  Who needs swimsuits?

I found the water toys that I had saved from when my kids were little.  They had so much fun playing in the water.  It was a stroke of genius.  What a lovely way to spend a hot summer morning and what a great reminder of the beauty of water play!

Have you found your joy today?
