Tiptoe Through the Sprinklers

We all have memories of  things we did as kids to cool off. 

When Grandma J was a kid we had a little pond that all the neighborhood kids would  splash around in.  This was without parental supervision.  Some of us couldn't swim!  We all survived.

There wasn't such a thing as bottled water.   When frolicking in the summer sun got us all hot and thirsty, it was the rubber garden hose that quenched our thirst.

One thing Grandma J did was still popular when her own kids were young.



Like playing in the sprinklers with the little boy next store. 

This activity isn't recommended for adults.   Grandma J knows what she's talking about....she told you all about Rita's incident   three years ago.   It's a perfect example of why sprinklers aren't for sissy adults.

Don't play in sprinklers, especially naked. Noted! But why'd you have to call me a sissy?

Oh my gosh...that RITA story is hilarious. Such a hoot...the apples don't fall that far from the tree.
I loved playing in the sprinkler too as well as my girls...but we almost always had clothes on.

Oh, I love that picture! I ran through the sprinklers too. Loved it! Reminds me of summer! I do have a hazy memory of me falling on a sprinkler head while doing this as a kid.

At least your mom taught you to keep your pants on.
