Felicity and I were on the front porch the other day when my Papa drove up with something BIG hanging out of the trunk of his car.
A sheep trough!!!
A month or so ago, I had told my Papa how I HATE those big plastic pools that are only really used for one season, then they crack, and get thrown into the land fill. Can you imagine how many of those are in there!? Anyways, I told him how if we had the money, I'd buy a big watering trough for the kids to play in. He got this as the kids' combined birthday and Christmas presents for the year.
Denver finds it handy too.
As fun as it looks, I've just dipped my feet in, or my head, which really does lower my body temp on these HOT days. And though many of my blog friends are reporting Autumn like weather, color changes, and falling leaves, we here could quite possibly have another month and a half of water play weather left.
And no water waste here. At the end of the day, I just bucket the water out and use it to water the garden.
After they get cooled down, Logan and Lissy like to lay on the sun soaked cement to warm up, even though its in the hundreds outside these days. Just because they're cute, I'll leave you with some pics of my sun bathers.
