Little Prince's friend E came round to play, and despite the weather being overcast and not that warm, they somehow ended up having an all afternoon water fight!! It started when Little Prince found his water pistol, and then he remembered where another one was for his friend. Princess Lollipop was feeling left out, so the boys got a plastic bottle out of the recycling for her! They started to use more and more plastic bottles, and get wetter and wetter! Then Little Prince's friend H came round to play, after I made her check with her parents that it was ok, she joined in too. After a while a very soggy H rode home on her bike, and returned in dry clothes over her swimsuit, much more practical. Princess Lollipop seemed to hate the water fight, screaming and shouting when she got wet, but she refused point blank to come back inside and as soon as she had received enough sympathy, she ran back into the garden to join in again.
E's Mum collected him, but had to wait while I found him some of Little Prince's clothes to return home in, it took a while as E isn't as skinny as my Little Princely beanpole! Little Prince, Princess Lollipop and H carried on soaking each other for a while, but then it started to get too cold even for these hardy soul, and the water fight had turned into more of a mud bath, my poor lawn!! I persuaded them all to come inside, and plopped them all (in their swim suits) in a warm, bubbly bath. I had to drag them out when the water started to look more like bubbly hot chocolate, and it took ages to get the bath clean again lol. Once they were all warm and snuggly dry in their dry clothes, Little Prince escorted H home, he's such a gentleman :-) Princess Lollipop cuddled up on the sofa with her Daddy for a rest before bedtime.
Later that evening Little Prince told me that was the MOST FUN DAY he'd ever had :-) Amazing how much fun you can have with a plastic bottle and some water lol :-)
