Our Daughter is a Genius!

The day before his surgery, Robert went out front to water the lawn. Lily insisted on going outside with him, so we all went to play in the yard. As Robert was watering, Lily of course wanted to help. (She loves to help with EVERYTHING!). He let her help for a while, and then very bravely turned the reigns over to her, so to speak. She was doing great spraying the water all over the front lawn. All of a sudden she looked a little concerned and said, "Hep pease!" Robert walked over to help her and as soon as he was within reach, she lifted up that nozzle and sprayed the heck out of him, laughing hysterically. How did she have the presence of mind to pretend she was having trouble so she could get him to come over to spray him?!? I didn't catch the initial event (you never have a camera with you at those moments), but we did manage to get a little of the fun on video as well as a few pictures.

Gotcha!
I love that story. I'm sure daddy didn't mind one bit getting soaked.

Take care,

Kevin

I knew I like that little girl!

That was great...and she is really too crafty to fake that one!

I think all kids love the water hose.....I know Derick thinks it's great fun to have control and spray Daddy. Mommy stays out of the way as much as possible! Fun Video!

I so need to remember to check your blog along with Robert's - these are wonderful photos!

I look forward to seeing your Stampin' Up posts. I make my own cards so it will be a real treat.

Have a wonderful trip! Stay safe!

What a cute little wise guy! I just love watching Daddy get such joy from his little sweetie pie. Lily must have a nice sized pinky to have Robert all wrapped around it that way!
Just darling photos and video.
