93 degrees....need I say more?

This is how the little kids and I spent the day!

I bought this pool last year at the end of the summer. I got it at Dollar General for 75% off. Just $5.00! I know, BARGAIN! I also bought a foot pump for $1.75.

Last night my friend Sharon (Hi, Sharon!!) and her adorable grandson Dakota came by. He so kindly offered to pump up the pool for me. What a gentleman!


First things first! Lunch! Kamrie decided to eat on the trampoline, J.J. on the ground! They had bologna and doritos sandwiches! Yes, you heard right. They love doritos ON their sandwiches.

The water was SOOOO cold, but it felt great on such a hot day. We are going to do the same thing tomorrow. YAY! Summer is finally here.

Your pool is very inviting. We have "dry" heat, very little humidity. But hot is hot no matter where you are. Kids in a pool are always cute!
