|Welcome to the Eliker Water Park!|
While I was working on my next book manuscript before heading it to the editor (it’s soooo close! The Midnight Slaves will be launched 15 Aug 2016!!), Jack took the girls outside to cool off. They’d been helpful getting the house tidied up that morning and with the first week of temps breaking into the nineties, it was too hot to do much else. I thought they were going to roll out the pool and fill it up….
I joined them half an hour later and found them playing in their own veritable water park. They’d rolled out a giant billboard tarp (I’ll tell you all about how we got a billboard tarp when I tell you about the roof) and had drug slides and playgrounds and pools over so they could have some real fun.
Not wanting to be left out, we pulled the hose over to the sweaty, fly-covered horses and let them enjoy the cool water too. You know it’s hot out when Stoney and Dancer don’t run away from being hosed off. They loved the temporary reprieve from the heat and biting flies and probably would have joined us at our little water park if we’d let them.

I know some dislike the dog days of summer, but I’m not one of them. With a little water, it’s one of the best times of the year!
