The Joy of Sprinklers

Our grandson (3.5 yo) loves to ply in the sprinkler. He fills his mouth with water then tilts his head back and spouts it up in the air. You can see how much he enjoys this.

Growing up my grand parents always turned on the sprinker for me during the summer, even after they got me a wading pool.

gezz, andy, can't you afford a real sprinkler from lowes or the home depot?

making your poor grandson water the whole lawn that way is just wrong...

lol, just kidding. i can't believe how big he's getting!

and the lawn must look nice too.

Thanks, BT. He loves the pool and all other water related stuff. He and his parents went to Aruba with us this past winter and he was non-stop at the beach or pool.
