What makes YOU bounce?

In the summers, it gets in the 100's here. We've had a few 105-110 degree days and on those days when it's too hot to go on a walk or the park, we take the kids to the splash park. I love this particular splash park because when Connor gets sick of running around in the water, he can put his shoes on and run around the park. Then when he gets too hot, he can run back into the water.

 So, do you remember "Mr. I don't like the pool and don't want to be anywhere near it"? Well, he LOVES the splash park. I mean, seriously. He bounces while he's there. Do you know what I mean? Have you ever seen a kid who is SO happy that they actually walk around and bounce up and down (not exactly a jump or a stomp - just a bounce)? That's Aiden. He gets SOO excited!
This picture below cracks me up. The big kids were sitting on the water spout and daring each other to do it. The water cycles through the different objects, so the kids never know where it will come up. Izzy saw them doing it and she wanted to try. Only, the water came up and sprayed her and scared her half to death. But then she giggled. And giggled. And giggled some more.
Isabella isn't quite as excited about the water as her brothers are, but she humors us enough to cool off and distract herself a bit.
See that happy boy? Oh he makes my heart melt. Who knew being a Mama would bring me so much joy?
One of the days we went was a Saturday, and they had a snow cone truck out front. Have I mentioned my love for snow cones? I am not a "bowl of ice cream" gal at night or even a candy person - but snow cones make me happy. I even let the kids have a few bites. Ha!
What?!? I got a picture of all three! Miraculous!
 And since I talked about the bounce earlier, I thought it was best to just show you! Tell me that isn't the cutest little bounce you've seen. So sweet that it makes him so happy. I am pretty sure that is exactly what I look like when I'm eating a snow cone!
What makes YOU bounce?
