We have had a wonderful couple of days doing lots of water play, using the hose pipe to soak each other, playing the water down the slide as we slid down. We filled buckets, sat in paddling pools, played hook a duck and generally really enjoyed the hot weather. We have kept in the shade as much as we could, and eaten lollies.
