Beat the heat! Set up a car wash!

It has been hot here. Suddenly, the rain and wind have disappeared and instead we have heat. You guys know I live in the Netherlands, right? Well, here's the thing about Dutch homes - most don't have air conditioners. In fact, I don't know anyone that has air conditioning at home. This makes it hot. 

So to escape the heat a bit, one of our favourite things to do is set up a car wash! 

Water play is a perfect way to cool down a bit, have fun, and maybe add some practical life into your day!

We've been getting and setting up works like this almost daily lately! The water play is always a hit with Y - he loves to splash, get wet, and play in water. 

He's actually pretty meticulous about washing his car. He loves helping Daddy wash his car, using a hose, and tons of soap. Of course, when washing his own car, Y is equally as enthusiastic, and excited!

After he's finished washing his car, it's time to show it off and go for a ride!
