Playing in the irrigation water is the equivalent of running through sprinklers when I was a kid. In the warm months we get irrigation water every two weeks. Sometimes its during the day and sometimes it arrives at 2am. But the minute the kids see the yard full of water they have they’re bathing suits on ready to go. We have a pool in our backyard, yet this is such a draw because you can run through it – and do amazing tricks that are otherwise impossible in the pool.
My favorite part is hosing off the kids when they’re covered in grass. Irrigation is fun for all!
When they were little, my kids LOVED the irrigation too. In the places where the water was deeper, they would load old row boat with the dog and their “tools needed for the adventure” and paddle around being pirates or such. What wonderful times.
