Summer Fun

I have been trying to collect ideas and put things together so that we could have a fun summer that does not include the words, "I'm Bored!". No mom wants to hear those words.

Here is the first of the projects.


Is this not the coolest sprinkler ever?

My kids don't like the kind that shoot at you but this spray mist is awesome. Mitchell ran and ran through it....fully clothed as you can see. Chris is awesome. He put this together in no time flat. Seriously in about a half hour.


We found the awesome directions for this at Instructables. We are already planning on having a neighborhood bike wash. A few buckets of soapy water, sponges and of course ice pops for everyone, and we have an awesome summer afternoon of fun with our friends.

Wow! That is pretty clever. I might have to run through it on a really hot day with the kids. Yes, I just might!
