Through The Lens Thursday: Imperfect

Sometimes a child’s imagination manifests itself in ways that adults just don’t understand.

Why would you play in a sprinkler, but block the water with an umbrella?

Does that make any sense?

To me, it’s an imperfect execution of water play. To them, it’s a whole lotta fun.

Ah, summer. I heart you.

    Ha! Yesterday Abbey stood in the rain, with an umbrella. But not over her head. Collecting water from the downspout. Kids make me laugh.

    love it!! My girls were doing the same thing last weekend. didn't make any sense to me at the time and of course I didn't take any pictures. I am SO glad you did — because seeing the "imperfection" here — it now makes perfect sense to me! 🙂

  7. Cute, Cute, Cute, kids are so imaginative! Great pics!!
