Water Play

One of things Blake likes to do inside is play with water. He enjoys splashing around in the bath tub and sink and, I’m sorry to say, the toilet. We often throw out some towels and some buckets of water and cups and spoons and let him make a big, wet mess. It’s awesome to … Continue reading »
