I was SOOOOOOOO sick last week. A week ago, it was Jacob, but he recovered quickly. I guess it took a while for me to catch the germs. Anyway, it hit Sunday, and I was down for the count, in my room-cave, for the week. Thursday, I rejoined the family. I'd missed them! Kevin did a great job keeping the kids alive, fed and clothed (though not always matching or even out of jommies), all while still doing his regular job from home. I'm so grateful! Turns out, he had quite a helper. Beth had been so good about helping with Jacob and taking care of things. So, Kevin rewarded Beth with a trip Walmart's toy section and some spending money. One of her treasures she selected is the Wacky Wildflower. After a torturous wait until AFTER dinner, Kevin set it up, and it was time to play. They had a blast!
Not sure what stickin her hiney in first would do. Then she holds her breath. Oh my!
Jacob took a bit longer to warm up to the idea of playing in the "rain"
One sprinkle of water, and off he went!
Brave now, until the water hits his face (click to enlarge the 2nd pic- it's so worth it!)
I think we'll be playing with this again soon!
Then they played on the trampoline long enough to get the grass off and not be drippy-wet
