We love to have a good time at the GRITS household, but we especially enjoy it when it’s free. There’s just something about free, these days, that adds some fun.
Last week, we took a little “field trip” to a local park that has a fabulous water fountain built specifically for free water fun. I’m sure it was built to make the park aesthetically pleasing, but that’s not why we go.
When we arrived, I laid the law down…. 30 minutes of play and not a minute more! It was almost noon and I think our pediatrician would probably frown upon children playing in a fountain without sunscreen in the blazing hot sun. I knew I was forgetting something.
For the whole thirty minutes, I don’t think they ever stood still.
Here’s why I’m glad I had the camera with me. Our thirty minutes were just about up when I look up to see the Princess sitting like this:
And what do you think she is telling her neighbor? Yes,you guessed it. Out of her sweet little Princess mouth she tells the little boy next to her, “LOOK, I am peeing.”
I’m not sure I’ve ever been prouder. Or not.
Then I look over at Lego-Man, who is sitting a few kids away. Guess what?!
He was peeing too.
Yep, our thirty minutes was definitely up.
