Carwash...or not

My friend Cheryl sent me a link...she knew that i was looking for things for the kids to do this summer...


Got out my pencil and paper and drew MY version of the car wash of my dreams!
The plumber had about 1/2 hour today that he was free of calls and plumbing.
I loved the Homespun version of the night carwash as I am all about recycling and crafting with
                                                     materials at hand. BUT...not the plumber.
He had all the materials on his truck so there was no recycling of old hoses or jerry rigging with duct tape!
AND
this is what he came up with for the girls.....
There was no waiting til the bikes got here for the 'car wash'.
They loved playing and running and dancing and singing through the new sprinkler. The plumber wanted to make it higher so I could ride my bike through there. I nixed that idea.
John cut the pipe, I drilled the holes, and  he did all the 'gluing'.
He even put a valve at the connector so the girls can control the flow of water.
I was in charge of moving it periodically to water different areas of the lawn.
We got our fun and exercise in today!!!
Megan has stated that carwash day is every Thursday.
The plumber was perplexed...I made that for one day a week of play?
Yeppers, I said...think of the water bill!!!!
He smirked...hmmm, one day a week?
Thanks for coming by!

Thanks for sharing this. I'll link up on our facebook page. My kids love this. I put it up for a few days to give my water bill a break but I think I'll be getting it out today.
