Poor Man's Back N Forth

When one does not have a pool one must be creative! Tyler gets the credit for this game, a take from the classic back n forth. In the traditional game there is someone that is "it" and tries to tag everyone before they make it back n forth accross the swimming pool. The "it" person must keep their eyes closed. In the poor man's version, the "it" person keeps their eyes closed and is armed with a hose. They have to stay in the same place and they can move the aim of their hose, but they can only make one pull on the trigger per aim, they cannot spray and move at the same time.
Miss P was a good sport too, when Daddy was it he heard movement and got her right in the face, oops. She didn't cry though.
Morgan even played, it's funny to watch a pregnant person run.
Look at Ty go!
This would be classified as a miss.
We had fun this summer and I can't believe it's already over. The boys looked so cute this morning for school and Ben had his first day of preschool at home with Mommy. I'm going to try and get caught up in my posts before I put up the pictures from this morning though. It's good to be back into a routine and get the kids to bed earlier. I'm starting to reclaim my house and I got both of the bathrooms cleaned this morning!

That looks like a fun game, we'll have to try it. My kids love to keep cool by running the hose down the slide of our playground to make thier own water slide. Luckily the slide is pretty rough and doesn't get too slippery!

Oh, I forgot, you can definately have the 12mo clothes, would you like 18mo too?

That looks like a fun game. I know my kids came up with all sorts of fun games with the hose when they were without a pool. They were lucky they had a pool most of their lives.. So hard to believe your kids are already in school and growing up.. I am ready for a routine too. I do love summer. I will have to come see you..

We called that game in the pool sharks and minnows. But how clever to play on land! When the kids get older... and I have more of them... I will have to do this one.

I have been wanting to see a picture of Morgan. She is looking good.
