Summer in AZ is hot.
Luckily, we have air conditioning and a swimming pool.
However, every kid in AZ needs to learn one skill in order to survive an AZ summer…
drinking from the hose.
I know I am not the only one who grew up drinking out of a hose.
So one night, when the sun had gone down and it was still hot, my mom handed Riker the hose.
He was pretty much a natural.
He didn’t need any instructions on what to do.
Water was flying everywhere…
and he was one happy boy.
Riker does NOT like when water splashes his face
but it wasn’t enough of a deterrent to make him put the hose down.
And it didn’t take much convincing from his dad to chase mom with the hose.
I forsee many water-filled afternoons this summer!
