Rainbows

The pool is going to close in a month but the weather will stay warm here through at least the end of September. So, I bought Grace a sprinkler to play in the water on our front lawn. The rainbow colors of the sprinkler matched her rainbow bathing suit.
Watching her today reminded me of when I was a kid. We lived in two different houses with pools but sometimes, we would play in the hydrant sprinkler. When that happened, the whole neighborhood would come out to run through the water together. Maybe if we keep playing outside we can attract some neighborhood kids for Grace to play with!

Nothing like sitting on the stoop and watching the kids play in the Brooklyn streets and run in the water from the hydrant. Maybe a sign saying "all kids welcome" will help attract kids in your neighborhood.

So Happy that you remember that, Lynn....you all played under the sprinkler, even with the pools. Grace, I love your rainbow sprinkler and bathing suit.
