We got a pool!

Before you get too excited and invite yourself over for a pool party, here are some pictures:




Until Chickie swam in a friend’s kiddie pool last week (and LOVED it), I was under the impression that these tiny little pools just aren’t fun. Of course, now that I’ve analyzed that opinion, I realize why I held it—the last summer I used a kiddie pool, at whatever age that was, I’d outgrown it, and it was boring. But every summer before that, it was a blast!

What a great way to spend part of a summer day—Mama on the back porch reading a book with Chickie a few feet away, sliding, straining water through a colander, pouring water out of a bowl, getting out of the pool to play with the dog…just being a kid. Pretty perfect for both of us.

Yep! These kiddie pools are my best friend during the summer months! We just busted out 2 of them this weekend. Even with blue lips and the shakes, they had a GREAT time!! :)

Looks like so much fun! We set up Paige's pool Saturday morning. Even while sick, these things are great.

That looks like a blast! Our little wading pool doubles as a duckpond in the winter :-). Kind of gross but very versatile!!!
