Every day this month, when the sun is beginning to set but it’s still incredibly warm, Tyler and Caroline tell me matter-of-factly that it’s time to play in the “sprinkles.”
They strip down to nothing and proceed to turn on the “sprinkles” themselves, only sometimes allowing me to jot upstairs and grab them a bathing suit before they’re soaked from head to toe.
Before long, the bathing suits have to go. The sweet innocence of two-year-olds is just precious.
As Nathan, Tyler and I cut grass yesterday in the breezy afternoon sun, I thought about how much fun it is to live in this crazy-hot town. How many other people enjoy “sprinkles” everyday in the spring? If only it’d stay just like this until August.
