How to keep cool on a hot day

All you need is a bucket of water.

The boys love playing with water and this has become their favorite way to play with water. Who needs one of them fancy pools? Not my boys! They love to have me strip them down to their diapers minus the diaper covers (for extra breathability) and fill a bucket of water so they can "help" me water the plants. They have tiny cups of water but they can empty that bucket pretty fast. A lot ends up on the patio, but that is part of the fun. I actually get a little reading done and my feet cooled by helpful little children.

They look like they are having a blast. Bubbie loves water, the tub, the pool, the dogs water bowl. I should try having him help water the plant.

That looks fun. Sometimes a bucket of water is better than a pool.

I like the half-nudity in the outdoors. Does this work for grown ups, too?
