Day #106: Fun in the Sun

This week we're having a backyard play date with a lot of kids.  Our outdoor toys needed some serious scrubbing thanks to countless spider webs, old leaves, mud, and grime.  I decided to create a little backyard toy wash of sorts.  One hose, a bucket of soapy water, some sponges, and three kids (and one baby) ready to get down and dirty...well, sort of.

We sprayed those toys down and then sprayed each other.  We scrubbed and scrubbed producing clean toys the kids would actually want to play in again.  We laughed and had fun until things got a bit out of control and the complaining about doing "work" began.  Ah, those frustrating moments that seem to creep into the innocent fun.  For the most part it was a pleasant little adventure.  I so badly wish we could make it through these fun times without raised voices or complaining.  Someday, right?!
