I know ... but I could not resist!

I know I just did a big blog post below, but I could not resist this post. Yesterday when I was meant to be reading I instead spent the afternoon taking these shots. It was a warm day and Den gave the kids a bucket of water to play with. This quickly evolved into a full scale water fight/play/loads of fun! I had downloaded Ange's free mini kit (gorgeous! GO HERE to get it) and wondered what photos to use for the collage?

Thanks kids! I now had my photos! And thanks to Den for installing water tanks. For you see the water situation where I live (yes! In a major city) is so dire that "playing with water" is now unlawful. Gone are the days of running gleefully under a sprinkler or shooting each other with the hose unless you catch your "own" water. TG we do and can wash cars, water plants and "play".

What fantastic photos!! You really got some great shots!! And love the layout too! There's nothing more fun than water play! It's only 36 degrees here and I need to turn up the heat a bit and close my eyes and pretend I'm in Australia!
