Weekly Photo Challenge – Merge

We are in the middle of a heat wave. Ugh. Have i mentioned I love rain? This summer has been one of the hottest I can remember. I don’t like it, and I’m pretty sure kids don’t like the heat either…So how we beat the heat is head to the local beach by the ocean. At the park they have a kid’s water park! Fun!

The water is SO COLD! It is pumped out of the ocean and filtered. It takes a while for you to get used to the contrast between hot and cold!

I like this picture because it shows my son on the left clenching his fists out of excited anticipation for the bucket of water to soak the other kids. And, knowing him, he is cold! He knows it’s about to shock the kids. Evil grin perhaps?

The picture shows a merger of hot & cold. Water & earth. Kids merging together to get wet. And community merging together to enjoy the outdoors together! I guess the summer’s not that bad…
