bits of summer.
This has been the summer of hot and humid. It seems to be never ending - but we try to enjoy it in short spurts.
The boys had found water balloons when out shopping and so wanted to try them. I know - they have done them before, but it has been a few years.
So we filled and filled and filled (all parents know water balloons take ridiculously long to fill, and only moments to burst). The goal was to get wet and stay cool but neither one got a hit - both from aim and dodging. :)
But I think the point of water balloons is the idea of them, more than the actual thing, don't you think? Squishy cool balloons. Blinding sunshine. Slivers of shade. Throwing. Dodging. Cold water. Prickly dry grass. Hot concrete under bare feet. Coming into cool inside air after getting so hot running around.
Bits of summer.
