yesterday was so hot and sunny but gorgeous in the shade. i let ben run around in his diaper, filled up his water table and then taught him how the pitcher pours liquid into a cup for him to drink. he thought this was the greatest and continued to re-fill his pitcher in the water table, drinking tons of water (when he got any in the glass at all). i got to sit on my deck and enjoy the afternoon while ben was completely preoccupied. i then took him down into the yard, turned on the hose and gave him my biggest tupperware bowl and a couple different size buckets. he played for over an hour. our new favourite activity on a hot day. who needs a pool or a water park when you have a hose and bucket?
but would you believe? it's raining today!
