Backyard Pool

As most of you know by now, we love the water.  We love to go to the beach, to the pool, to play in the rain, and to give Julian bathes.  Luckily he feels the same, and will gladly let us pour water over his head!  With gas prices so high, schedules tight, and unpredictable weather we decided to invest in a pop up pool for the grassy area behind the apartment building.  It's like a pop up tent - stored in a flat circle that flies open to be filled with water.  As a bonus, since it's nearing the end of the summer, we got it on super clearance, a deal we couldn't pass up on something we'll use for years to come for entertainment.  

After our monthly babywearing meeting on Saturday, while we waited for Papa to get home from playing 18 holes with Uncle Kenny - we set up in the back yard.  The water was warm in minutes, and bath toys were all he needed, so I stripped him naked and let him lose.  Some of our neighbors joined us, and I sipped on margaritas with my feet dipped in while Jules had a blast playing with papa.  It was definitely worth the investment, and we hope to use it for many weekends to come.
