A Sprinkler and a Tree

Hurricane Bill having affected our weather here on the Mid-Atlantic Seaboard, the weekend brought strong winds and intensely heavy rains. Sunday morning the girls and I woke up and discovered a large limb had fallen into our backyard. They immediately asked if we could keep it there so they could use it as a fort and I said yes. Then Natalie got the brilliant idea of placing the lawn sprinkler inside the fallen branches so that they could pretend it was the canopy of a rain forest. Today after school (The First Day of School) we came home and I set up the sprinkler for them. You would have thought these children had all been given the greatest treasure on earth! They played for two solid hours with a sprinkler and a fallen tree limb. It was the sweetest thing I've seen in a long time.
