Boy was it hot....... What a great idea the neighbors had to turn on the sprinklers and run through them. I was surprised that it did not last very long. The kids all wanted to put toys on the sprinkler and cover it put. Even though it was not long lasting it worked to cool everyone off. The boys love to play with all the neighbors. We have been very lucky to live in a neighborhood that is filled with kids. In our cul-de-sac there is 13 kids under the age of 12, with 2 more moving in. There are 6 teenagers. It is busy around here. There is always someone out playing.
