I remember when I was a kid (I like to think that was not too long ago), we use to count down the days until my dad would get the irrigation in the summer. We would play out on the back lawn with what we called a skim board (a homemade board that you would run with and drop into the water, jump on, and hopefully skim across the top of the water or head plant it!!). We would also just run through the water, play in the ditches, make mud pies, have mud fights, you name it. My kids experienced this first hand, on Father's Day. My dad had the irrigation water...Riley was the first to jump in...fully clothed. Kaycie then decided to take all of her clothes off, but her underwear and jump in. It was then Jake's turn. He was nervous, what if someone saw him. We kept explaining that no one would know he was in his boxers....and hello Kaycie was in her underwear. He finally did it!! Both Jake & Kaycie covered themselves in mud, so no one would know they were in their underwear and if you know Kaycie this won't surprise you...she made herself a mud bra. I don't think I had laughed that hard in a long time, and my parents, and grandmas were laughing hysterically as well!! The kids had a blast...and I have to admit, I was kind of jealous, I miss being a kid!!
