Summer bucket list: campus fountains


 One of the things on our summer list (aka the big sheet of butcher paper covering our pantry door) was to pack a picnic lunch and take it to the campus fountains and then proceed to thoroughly soak ourselves.
 Done and done.
 

 It was a really really really hot day (big surprise, right?)  I wasn't planning on going in very far, but it was REALLY HOT.
 

For the last half-hour or so, the kids played this really elaborate game with Neil (while I tried to keep Luke from eating all of the miscellaneous flora floating in the water) where they competed to see who could launch their sandals farthest using the jets of water.  Abigail was the champion with her ultra-light flip-flops.

I think Isaac's face here might be one of my all-time favorites.
