Thank You, Pool

As you may have read from a previous entry, we are currently challenged to embark on fun activities during the day that don't burn us to a crisp. Enter new wading pool. This little 8-foot baby has been a great addition to our backyard, providing a cool alternative that keeps the kids active. We got back from the store with the new item at 7:30pm (bath & p.j.'s time), but I just couldn't send them to bed knowing the fun awaiting them. It was still more than 90 degrees outside, so I knew temperature wouldn't be an issue. So after some convincing to Ryan, I put the kids in their swimsuits and headed outside to fill the pool. They were literally jumping up and down with anticipation to climb in!
They each wanted a chance to "man the hose."Unlike the bathtub, they couldn't get in trouble for kicking water in here! Yay!Drew's fun peaked when he realized he could hit me with the water!

Brenda!!! It's so good to see what's going on with you. I've really been missing your beautiful face in YW every Sunday! I just bought a pool for Evan, but Dave thinks I should return it. Now I'm totally wanting to keep it for Evan after seeing your post.

Holy cow! I just finished Wuthering Heights! What a coincidence. What do you think??? I loved it.

Hi guys! It's your cousin Carrie & I just saw your link on the family website. These things are so stinkin' fun :) I think I've only met you once Brenda, but it seems like we have a lot in common. :)
Your boys are so big & I love the stories & handsome pictures. Good luck in your new adventure! Ours will start someday soon, I hope. :)
