Call it an impulse buy, but I got a really cool new sprinkler a few weeks ago. It shoots balls out the top with a heavy stream of water, then squirts water out the sides in multiple directions too. It had been raining so much (and then not really warm) that we hadn't used it yet. Amy and I both had husbands who were MIA this week, so the kids and she came over for dinner and some sprinkler play time. They played in it for a long time. Anything that tires the kids out is good for me!
