Weekly Photo Challenge: Refreshing

A couple of years ago my daughter and grandson came for a visit.  We spent a day at the National Zoo, probably the hottest day of the year.  Jacob, my grandson, “refreshed” himself by playing in the water spray the zoo provides for hot visitors.  Kids and adults alike love the sprays!  Enjoy!

    1. Jacob LOVED the zoo. It is wonderful to see things through the eyes of children. This was one of those classic moments that sticks in your mind forever. Glad you enjoyed it.

    1. LOL!!! Even if we had umbrella’s, knowing Jacob it would be quickly discarded. Water of any kind is like a magnet for him. Good thing his mother (my daughter) is a good sport about it all! Thanks for stopping in and for taking time to leave a comment. Much appreciated.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, klassikurvz. I could use a some mists myself. Glad you like the photo, and appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. Have a gloriously refreshing day!

    1. It was a great day for all of us, and the water mists placed all around the zoo made the heat more bearable. As you can see, Jacob was drawn to the water like a magnet. Glad you like the photo.

  1. Shoot. This makes me wonder if I should bring swimming trunks to Disneyland on our next trip. They’ve got fountains in the Bug’s Life section of DCA, but I always cruise on by before Li’l D can see them. Hmm.

  2. Great photo! It certainly looks refreshing. My grandson is like yours – he loves playing in the water. In fact, I often get in trouble for letting my grandson, Peanut, help me water the garden. Peanut always gets soaked and his mother (my daughter) has to change his clothes.

    1. Don’t you just love being a grandma! We get to have all the fun and leave the tough stuff up to our kids! Peanut and Jake would have great fun together. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Jacob is darling and that is a great shot for this weeks photo challenge. I am happy to have found your blog. I am not sure how that happened but it is a good thing! We lived just outside of DC in Northern Virginia from 1989 to 1992. Very interesting experience. I am enjoying reading your blog this night that I can’t sleep.

    1. Cool! I’m happy you found my blog, too. We are enjoying living in NoVA. Also glad you’re enjoying rading my blog…hope it’s not the thing that puts you to sleep! 😉 Hope to see more of you. Thanks for visiting and for taking the time to leave a comment.

  4. Thanks for your visit… Love your pic – it really does look refreshing, although way too cold with us sitting in the middle of winter down here in the southern hemisphere!

    1. Oh to be a child again! Actually, we could do more child-like things, just not childish. Life is fun when we join children in play and catch their wonder. Thanks for stopping by, and for taking the time to leave a comment.
