One hot day at the park

I loaded the girls in the baby train and walked
 to the school playground on a very hot summer day.
I don't think there could be a day hot enough
 to keep Pearl from playing.
She ran back and forth across the bridge,
climbed up and down the ladders,
and went down the tunnel slide again and again.
A red-faced Pearl would duck under cover every so often.
She'd get some water, tell me how hot it was--
and she was right back out.
I tried to keep Violet in the shade as much as possible,
but she wanted out!
She wanted to explore--
and give me mini heart attacks by darting to the edge of everything,
and trying to run solo across the swinging bridge.
Pearl acted as the water ration-er.
She would let Violet know when she had a little too much to drink.
"that's enough, that's enough-- Mom! She's drinking it all!"
It was definitely a blazing hot, 
lots of water drinking, kind of day.

What a great mom to take them to the park! Just think of all the natural Vitamin D P&V absorbed! (smile)

They looked like they had so much fun~

Glad you all had a fun day at the park! I think somehow Violet skipped the cautious gene. She has no fear!
