The beginning of the summer is always nice because the kids are still pretty easily entertained. Throw a cheap plastic pool out in the backyard, and Mom's got time to herself for at least a couple hours! Eventually the entertainment value decreases though, and they start requesting trips to the "real" pool and the "real" waterpark. While I also enjoy those things from time to time, I'm holding onto these early days of summer, while Mom's Waterpark in our own backyard will still hold their interest!!
Kids playing in water make for some pretty entertaining photos, don't they? I just always have to keep my distance, or else my camera will get splashed!
