Magic Moments

At the end of a sunny day, Dana decided to start a water fight. She sprinkled a bit of tap water in my direction. Then her eyes lit up and she ran out of the room.

I of course thought nothing of it, until she returned with a filled water pistol!

That was it - The race was on to remember where I'd hidden the other three unopened packets. With pistols at the ready, the kids got in on the act and what could have been a ginormous water fight was almost immediately curtailed as Shira did not appreciate being spritzed in the face.

The sheer impulsiveness of the moment was Dana all over and it's one of the things that I love so much about her.

The pistols have been seized and are ready, waiting for another day when I predict we are all seriously going to have the most amazing and floodworthy water-fight.

I can't wait (and neither can the kids).

aw I wish we could come over and join you, then it would be a water war - boys against girls and the girls would totally kick butt, right Dana?
