to be a kid again...
enjoying the simple things of life...
a bucket of water...
an empty plastic container...


I've been saving my plastic bottles with lids...
for my homemade cleaners...but they also make
excellent toys for Hotrod....
he fills them with water...rocks...dirt...

I love the way he uses his imagination with it all...
he was making Elephant soup here...
it is an easy recipe...
you add elephants...eggs...zucchini....
carrots...kangaroo...stir till looks yummy...
oh and I almost forgot yogurt...
it has to have yogurt...

Oma even gets a nice cool off for her hot tired feet...

after all that hard work...
you have to be rewarded...
with an Orange sugar free Popsicle...

Hotrod always makes me smile. and I still like to play in a bucket or tub of water. my mother had to tin washtubs and she would fill them and let us sit in them in the hot summer time. no plastic pools back then. there is something about playing in water that is soothing

This sounds like one of the best recipes I have heard in a while. It looks like he was having a great time.

I want to play in the water! It's a shame we have to grow up.
