splash pad {photo settings}

It is so hot here…heat index running near 105 the last several days. Some cringe at the thought of intense heat. I cringe at the thought of intense cold temps. I can handle the heat, just get me near water. I’ll take heat & sprinklers over snow and layers any day. To beat the heat, we took an afternoon break to the splash pad.

Please create stickers that look like band-aids. Many kids go through the ‘band-aid phase’ – where they need a band-aid for the tiniest scratch. Band-aids get expensive…band-aid stickers would be a great product. Maybe they already exist. I’m off to google it…
