Every summer there's a free barbecue at the junior high for the neighborhood...in lds jargon it's a stake boundry thing, but it's not a church thing. The Mayor comes and says a few words, you eat free hotdogs and watermelon and the fire department hooks the truck up to a hydrant and sprays for about ten minutes. And oh if you have large stuff that needs clearing the city sets up dumpsters at the school to be filled for the 'neighborhood clean up'.
And it is highly possible that I dragged my oldest daughter directly into the spray to get soaked so that she'd stop skirting the edges. Once wet she had no hesitation, and Mischief followed. They had a delightful time.
