Hot Fun in the Summertime!

Every kid should have the opportunity to run through the sprinklers in the Summer! Now Marissa can too, with a little help and supervision, of course.

Pure joy!

We just LOVE Summertime!

AHHH....Summertime is the best!

So, Marissa can now do this because her trach is capped, right? This is AWESOME!!! You are right, every child should be able to run through the sprinkler! I'm so happy for you that Marissa can now do this!

Looks like she is loving it! Have fun! Love and Hugs!!!

I love it! Everything is so amazing to her. She finds wonder in everything. She's such a reminder to appreciate the little things in life.

Enjoy summer, Marissa!

Michelle said...

She looks so great and is so loving that sprinkler...sweet!

She is such a delight to watch with her curiosity and wonder and excitement over something that is almost a right of passage for kids in the summer. I'm assuming she is capped during this little adventure...if so, that is fantastic!! It warms my heart to watch her get so excited over a run in the sprinkler! Lots of hugs, kisses and kudos from us!

Wait a minute. Running thru a sprinkler is a right of passage?

I'll be right over, since I never got to do that when I was young,....wait a minute, I've never done it.

See you in 15 minutes LOL

Great to see Rissa doing such a normal thing. Keep it up. We love watching.
