So what do you do with this kind of heat and no air conditioning (no one has AC, it's just not very hot here most of the time)? We don't have a kiddie pool in the garden for the Little Man, so before the heat became unbearable this morning, we made a special trip to Zeeman's (our version of a dollar store) for water pistols. One euro later, and we have a very happy Little Man and an out-door activity that we can do without heatstroke.
|This is where Sebastian started questioning my decision of allowing flying water outside.|
We set some ground rules, of course: no squirting animals (i.e. "Leave the cats alone."), no squirting at/into the house, no squirting when someone says stop or is refilling. Otherwise, go nuts!
|Watering the plants is ok.|
I must say, I'm already impressed by the quality of cheap water pistols compared to my first Super Soaker 20ish years ago... these little things make 15 feet - as did that first Super Soaker...
|And we got 2 in the package, so grownups can play.|
At least as the heat continues, we still have a play option that will distract from the "I wanna watch a show" syndrome that develops indoors. And we'll stay a little cooler for it, too.
And both cats have decided it's safer inside while there's flying water outside.
|But Sebastian's still disappointed...|
