Kids and Water


My granddaughter Alyssa came to visit today as a prelude to Father's Day. We went and had lunch and then went to the park down the street from where I live. There is a water park incorporated into the recreation area that was donated by a fast-food business in town in an effort to give back to the community, so it was NOT constructed at public expense. Those of you who understand my preference for private money going toward these things will understand my feelings that this is an example of how it should work. (hat tip to Miguel Vasquez and family, owner of Miguel's Jr. Restaurant)


 Spraying water tastes good even if it's infused with chlorine...


Trying to catch the water can take  
the entire day when you're a kid.


Wet is better than dry.


And when you're done playing, Mommy (Kelly) 
is there to cuttle you in a warm towel.

Alyssa sure has grown, she's so adorable and looks a lot like her mommy.

All of the photos are great, my favorite is the photo where Alyssa is trying to catch the water. Grandchildren, the best gift in the world!

I'm wishing I was Alyssa right now - especially since she seems to have had such a lovely time on a hot summer's day. It's freezing here... *sigh*

Great pics, as always :)
