Can you believe?

Can you believe this neighborhood water park is free?, we don't actually live in the neighborhood, or any neighborhood for that matter, but it doesn't matter, people can come from all over to play in the water on the weekends. I was not stepping into the chaotic water fights to translate since the kids seem to do okay themselves! I saw one boy telling Brook to wait her turn as she tried to take a metal water shooter from him but she was just confused, as he didn't really want to share. She almost used a little force but the "guns" turned off and the dolphin turned on. You never know where the water will shoot from here, so all the kids run around, screaming with delight when they are surprised by a great splash of water. Also to note that my kids have mastered the "I'm not looking at you so I can't 'hear' you, therefore we can't leave if I don't know you're talking to me!!" down pat! ugh, fifteen minutes I tried to wrangle these two away and back to the car. It was miserably hot here today. Also while I'm on the subject, Gage also has mastered this one....when he's outside playing and I'm trying to get him to come inside, sometimes he changes his voice to mock how he sounds w/no processor on and tells me that he doesn't have his processor on. Can you believe that? I've told him before he loses his "R's" when he doesn't have his processor on so he's learned to be either very smart or very deceitful, depends on how you look at it.
