Have a splashing good summer

I was trying to get this card done for Mo's Water Challenge, but just didn't get it in time.  Luckily, I just love this image since it reminds me of my son playing with the summer toys.  It also reminds me of my brother, since every year the only vacation our family would take would be to go to the Wisconsin Dells water parks.  The funny thing is that we don't live too far from there now, and I really avoid going there since I have been there so many times.  I have even talked my parents into taking my kids when they have wanted to go.  I went with my best friend and her daughter to look at wedding stuff the other day and we drove by the Dells and she said something and I sounded like a travel agent explaining the area.  I just wish I could fit into the same bikinis I wore back then, hehe.
