A Lost Art . . .

The weekend was HOT again - as in H. O. T.
(high 90s, high humidity, very frizzy hair)
so, it seemed like a really good time to introduce Maddy
to the lost art of
washing the car . . .
at home
in the driveway!
Usually, we drive through a car wash  --
so speedy and convenient.
We gathered our bucket, that crazy weird green hose,
some washcloths, towels and
Windex and got to work!
Maddy learned quickly and was a pro!
She even cleaned the tires!
We threw out trash and
used Windex on the inside of the windows
as well as the outside!
My big red jeep is beaming -
it's so happy to be so clean!
After such great work, we knew a celebration was in order --
Root Beer Floats for
everybody from Sonic!

Great idea to beat the hot weather! I may have to try that with my kids one day after school this week.

Cute pics. Love the one with the water spray! My husband does this with our kids.

Fun times! We did that once this summer, and although my car didn't turn out great, it sure was a good time had by all! :) I LOVE your bright red car! :)

Good idea. Maybe I should do this tonight with our very dirty silver van?? It's going to be another hot day! Josie's teacher said their classroom reached 95. Rootbeer floats sound amazing, even for breakfast!

Holy cow! What a great idea! I need to put the punks to work!

We went to Dairy Joe's after CCD tonight. Have I told you about our new hang out? It's on W. O and Kamree loves it! It's a complete dive but they love it!
