the bird is always fascinated by the sprinklers she sees in everyone's yards, when we take our daily walks.  we don't have a yard so, she is missing out a bit by not having sprinklers of her own to play in.  fortunately, my parents have a great yard and she got her first taste of sprinkler playing yesterday afternoon.  it is hot hot hot here in western colorado so it was the perfect day for getting wet.  she was caught by surprise a few times but overall, seemed to love splashing and playing around.  we plan on this being our evening ritual for the rest of the time that we are here, it is just too much fun!
