Playing in the Water Hose

So here's how the story goes....
It's after our end of the year Cultural School Picnic and a few of the girls ganged up buddied up and asked if they could hang out after.
I love "hanging out after" times.
They're simple.
Fanciful.
Childlike.
Impromptu.

The girls above - Jenna, Xenia, Emily, Molly - did a round of painting. Molly painted a cat she saw on a coffee cup, and Em did her initials with cutesy flowers surrounding them. THEN they all walked in at T's house - where we were - and asked all giggly-like,
"May we play in the water?"
Reply: Yes
"May we get all wet with our clothes on?"
Reply: Yes
"We can?"
Reply: Yes

Shrieking galore.
Off they went and the above pics are testimony to the fun that was had.
Later, it was apple slices and Barbie playing.
Fake sleeping in the bed all together.

It was great for all the girls to run, laugh, get wet...and PLAY in T's backyard.

I love plain, simple playing.
