Girly was wondering what she was going to do with her cousins here yesterday. I told her she'd figure something out. And so she did.
I'm not sure who had the idea first but this is what I was called over to see as I was hanging a load of laundry on the line (in spite of the horrible weather Irene caused here in Vermonton Sunday, yesterday was beautiful out).
Girly and Hannah took all the wood scraps out of this utility bin that David brought home from work and plugged up the holes (not sure with what), added what looks like a carboard sail and hauled it into the pool.
The best part, though, was when my niece got into the bin.....and for your enjoyment, I got it on video!
(yes, at 1:27, Girly does go off to the side and pees in the grass - sigh)
I lose it at 2:53 - I couldn't help it!
These kids remind me so much of the fun we used to have as kids in the summer. We were always coming up with something crazy and creative.
Also, Hannah covered part of herself in mud.
Good, cheap fun. It's not clean, but it's good and cheap.
