Girl playing with garden hose

My daughter, Beth, and her friends were playing in our front yard this summer. July in Texas is brutal. We don't have a pool, so out came the garden hose. Having real fun out in 102°+ is difficult, but this photo shows Beth feeling joyful and carefree, despite the heat.
