Neighborhood Park in Staten Island
This was taken the summer after first grade, before we moved back to Iowa. In the photo, I had just finished romping in the sprinkler with Anita and "Little Elizabeth".
I loved the crazy park sprinkler. It was so much more fun, than playing in the yard hose back in Grinnell.
Don and I saw this colorful fountain in Cozumel, Mexico last spring.
I had just turned 60 and I thought about having a quick run through the shooting waters. It seemed like the perfect 6-year-old celebration! But I acted like a boring adult and just watched and smiled.
Time is Ticking!
I kept an eye out for the next 11 months, thinking maybe I'd have another sprinkler or fountain possibility. But, now it's April 5th and I have 4 more days until I turn 61! I must meet my goal of 60, 6-year-old celebrations!
So this morning after my run, I watered a few plants in the backyard. Then I looked at the nozzle and set it on soft sprinkle. I had all of about 2 minutes of silliness... and that included putting my camera on the table and setting the self-timer.
Okay maybe this wasn't the biggest of my celebrations, but I got nice and wet.
