And then splash in the water running down the street like it's a pool.
Until the other kids in the neighborhood start to take notice of how much fun they're having and an impromptu game of Thunderstorm Frisbee is born.
What was really fun was when my neighbor drove by to see my Micah laying on his belly along the curb of our street. She slowed to a stop to ask him what on earth he thought he was doing while I chuckled to myself as I watched the scenario develop out from our living room window.
Yup, we're the parents who let our kids swim in the street.
And then I made Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter cookies at 10:15 pm. It was just that kind of day.
Today I am welcoming my Michigan Twin and her kiddos to my home for a playdate for the kids and some girl time for their moms. I've taken it upon myself to introduce my pal to other Wisconsin delights such as Spotted Cow and Summer Shandy. Oh, and they had better help me eat those cookies.
