My boys like to make a mess. Play in mud. and water. Actually they love playing with water. Any forms of playing with it. They love water guns, and spraying you from the hose. They love baths, and will stand under the shower for as long as they could. They love to go swimming, in pools and the ocean.
One day I was trying to work in the garden and my oldest son wanted to help. I suggested he start digging in an area where there were a billion ivy. The soil was too difficult for him to dig in so I realized it was a ridiculous task to give him alone so I joined him. In the end I was able to get rid of tonne of ivy and there was a large hole. What better way to fill it but with water.
So even though the boys love splashing in the water they forget how cold the water can be from the hose. Their skin covered in goose bumps. The giggles turning more and more shrilly from being cold. I started to bring out a large rubber storage container filled with hot water from the bath. They jumped right in. Their own personal hot tub.
