Vera and Guido get hosed!

August 27, 2002

We discovered a while back that Guido loves hoses and sprinklers. This summer has been nice and warm, so we've taken the opportunity to "hose" him every once in a while. We've also discovered that Vera, too, likes to chase after the water, and that it's a great way to get her some needed exercise. (Helen, on the other hand, stays safely out of the way while all this nonsense takes place. She'll hop in the wading pool for a drink afterwards J).

So this afternoon we shot a few minutes of video to capture the fun. (As always, check out my notes on download speeds.) Click on any of the pictures to get the associated video.

First, we start with some sprints back and forth across the yard, chasing the water:

Then we follow with a few jumping jacks ... jumping at the hose nozzle of course:

Helen is fairly unimpressed with the whole affair:

And finally we wrap up with a little "face time":
