Fun in a Box...

Okay, now this box of fun did not contain a thing one or a thing two (Dr. Seuss, people!)...and it did cost a bit of money, but has already paid for itself in smiles, laughter, and all around fun.
We had this spot of gravel in the back yard, which I didn't like because 1) gravel ended up all over the concrete, and 2) it was wasted space in our yard.  So, we got one of those 12 ft. round pools and it covers the area perfectly.  Not only is the gravel contained, but the space is no longer wasted.  Now that's cool.

That's so awesome! We had one like that when we were little (remember those round aluminum ones?), and we thought it was the coolest thing ever.

Jonah had so much fun playing with Caleb, and he was really, really stoked on going to Trulee's pool with you. It was definitely on of the high points for his trip. Thanks so much for taking him.

How's the tummy??

That is going to be a ton of fun for your kids this summer and summers to come!

Very nice! The gravel doesn't poke through the bottom?

Becky, we were so glad Jonah could come. Ben held him and jumped in the "big pool" with him...when they came up he asked, "was that fun?" To which Jonah said, "Yeah!" Ben said, "Do you want to do it again?' Jonah replied, "No. It was scary." But, he and Caleb did seem to have a great time. It was so nice for Caleb to have a buddy!!
Oh, and my tummy is huge, and my granny stockings are hot. But I'll post more on that later!!
Lisa, the pool party is whenever you're not overwhelmingly busy. I am here. So is the pool. Come on over. Michaela and Christopher came swimming the other day....
And Sarah...we just put a double layer of tarp under it?? So I am just hoping for the best, I was worried about it but hubby seems to think it's fine, and so far, so good!
