A moment of wheeee . . . Rainball version

Two kids last weekend, bummed out they couldn’t play basketball because of the rain, went outside and invented rainball. Which is like basketball, but it’s in the rain . . . and there are hoses spewing water . . . and trash cans they fill with water . . . which they shoot the ball into . . . and jump into . . . when they’re not pushing them over and trying to surf down the driveway on a boogie board . . . and basketball is kind of sort of played in between . . . 

(Let’s file this in the There’s Always A Way To Have Fun Even When You’re Thwarted file.)

(We’re still looking for the basketball. Let me know if it floats by you.)
