I have been "discussing" with Honey that we should consider getting a pool. Okay, so discussing isn't the right word..."begging and threatening to have one put in while he's at work someday" is more honest. Anyway, he is insistant on "NO". So instead, we got a small, blow up pool to entertain the girls on those unbearably hot summer days.
It wasn't a bad investment actually, we spent $50, and it has pretty much already paid for itself.
Last night, Honey was working late, and wasn't going to get home til 10pm. So, I left the girls stay up late...to swim. I lit the fire pot and torches, and watched the girls swim. It was probably the most relaxing evening I've had in a while. They played in the pool for over an hour.
