Our Labor Day was spent lazy. We didn’t jetset to any far off exotic locations or drive to a lakehouse or have a big family cookout. These last few days we have been fighting off the 90 degrees heat with all things water. We visited nearby splash parks, played in our tiny blow up pool and ran through the sprinklers all weekend!
Why has it taken us so long to let Lottie run through the sprinklers?!
Josh took her through a few times with him, and then we let her loose and she loved running free, chasing the water from side to side and then turning and running the opposite direction so it didn’t catch her. With every run through we watched her gain confidence. She continued to creep closer and closer to the sprinkler until she would get sprayed directly in the face, giggle and run off.
I pray this type of joy never leaves her.
Lottie has always loved the pool. She is a water baby which makes this mama very happy. I make sure to buy the pool big enough for me to fit in too when I need to cool off!
This weekend was a great reminder of the need to slow down, relax and spend some quality family time together. The simplest activity, running through the sprinkler for a few hours, was the highlight of our entire weekend. Our schedule is so full on a regular basis, we love when we can take advantage of a weekend that is free.
While everyone else is traveling to their long weekend getaway for the holiday we were at home, running through sprinklers and it was perfect!
