Backyard Sprinkler Fun

There were no thunderstorms yesterday afternoon (somewhat unusual), so the kids spent some time in the backyard playing in the sprinklers.

For some reason Muriel is not very fond of sprinklers in our backyard, though we go to a spray park with sprinkler-like things, which she likes quite well. The sprinkler in the first two photos waves back and forth, and she would not go near it. The one in the last photo doesn't move around, so she'd play in it a bit more...but not much, as you can see from the photo.

But all three were up for popsicles afterward!


  1. Penelope's the same way. She loves getting splashed at the pool and will dump cups of water on her head during bath-time, but turn on a sprinkler and she's suddenly very suspicious. It looks like everyone had fun anyway though, and I LOVE your big backyard and that bright, blue sky!

  2. Finally catching up on blog reading and I love seeing your new surroundings. Sprinklers, bugs, popsicles, and happy kids...looks like life back in the States is good.
