Mr Golden Sun, please shine down on me.

The weather combination this week has been awesome; some rain, then some sun, then some more rain followed by more sun. It helps keep the Pink House cool so the girls and I don't suffocate.

Yesterday I filled Aspen's pool while she napped so it'd be warm by the time we decided to get in it. And by "we" I really me WE. It was so hot in the afternoon that I definitely needed to take a fake swim to cool off.

Don't you just love that giraffe? I can hook the hose to it so he sprays water out of his mouth. The only problem is that it HURTS. There's no happy medium with the water pressure. It's either too much or too little. So we just avoid the spray of death altogether.

While Aspen finished her nap and ate lunch, Maddie spent about half an hour standing in the pool trying to drink all the water. Then she spent about half an hour peeing and sitting on the lawn chair looking bloated. She loves that pool as much as Aspen.

This pool is probably the best $20 I've ever spent. It's a nice addition to the backyard and I think I might even sneak it in sometimes when Aspen is asleep so I can have it all to myself.


  1. I do love that little giraffe, it's way cute. Aspen looks so cute in her little swimming suit enjoying the cool water. :) Oh, and I TOTALLY understand about sneaking in yourself when she's asleep. I do that all the time with ours. I take a magazine and drink out to just float and soak up the sun.

  2. That is such a fun pool. Her swim suit is adorable. So is her hat.


Thanks for stopping by!
