Sprinkler Fun

Maybe it's just me, but it really wouldn't be summer without getting to play in a sprinkler in the yard.  When I was growing up it was the best way to beat the summer heat, and it became a bit of a social event when the neighborhood kids would join in.  It's like there was a neon sign hanging over the house:  Sprinkler = ON

On Sunday we went to Home Depot specifically to get a new sprinkler.  Oh, and I was reminded that sprinklers are traditionally, at least, for watering grass.  Or something like that.  But for us, the owners of a very, very green yard (it's the weeds that are green, not grass, and weeds grow too fast for us to want to encourage them by regular watering), a sprinkler is just a toy.  This particular one was pretty cool, though, with multiple settings for different sprays.  We found one that was agreeable to the Princess, and let her loose.

Here's a little bit of photo overload for ya... 



The skirt and the shoes eventually had to come off.
