DIY Waterpark {Years Ago}

I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to come up with a good "Years Ago" story for this week. In fact, I was looking through photo libraries to collect some pictures when I came across a classic story that I don't think I've shared on my blog.

Years ago, when Lauren was teeny-tiny, Brennan and I visited with some friends that I had known for several years through an awesome online community (Kids with Food Allergies). If I remember correctly, Addison was away at camp so it was just the three of us from our family and two other moms with their little ones.

While the moms relaxed in the shade with the babies, Brennan and Jen's daughter Karli played in their backyard.

It started innocently enough with the two kids taking turns on the swings.

And then we let them put on swim suits to play in the wading pool.

Before long, though, bubbles in the baby pool got a little boring and they drug out the sprinkler.

Sprinkler + Playground set = Water slide

Looking back at the pictures, I suspect Brennan may have been the ringleader for this day of adventure.

When they got tired of sliding, they decided to try sprinkler soccer.

All the while, the puddles in Jen's backyard kept getting bigger. By the time we made them stop, it was pretty much flooded.

Thank you Jen for a fun visit years ago and for fun memories to laugh about ten years later.

  1. How fun! I have loads of pictures of our kids playing in water in the backyard of our old house. It was always their favorite thing to do in the very hot TN sun.
