Yesterday I went to Walmart to get a little plastic molded pool for the kids to play in on the days that Gamma doesn't exactly want to be IN the big pool with them. So off we went, with our swimsuits on underneath, sunscreen at the ready. We walked into the garden section first, and found the pools. Two sizes, little for 10 dollars and big for 15 dollars. Uh oh...then I realized. I can't get this in my car. Even with the seats folded down, and Noah scrunched in the back seat underneath it. No how, no way! What's a Gamma to do. Now I have an excited little boy who wants a play pool and no way to get it home! So we shopped on the summer pool aisle and I wound up putting a snap set pool in a box into my cart. I showed him the photo on the box. See Noah, this is a pool too, it is just folded up small to fit into your car! He saw the picture of the kids playing on the outside of the box, and it was 3 girls and one boy. What did he say? "NO GAMMA...this is a GIRL pool." He did NOT want it. I hid it on the bottom of our cart and picked up a couple of other things, then made our exit. When it came time to pay, he saw it again saying "STOP!!! Put it back!!!" But I bought it anyway. We got home and I took it out of the box, and set it on the grass, and turned on the hose, and he soon forgot that he didn't like it.
BLOGGER is nothing but trouble lately. I have a bunch of fun and fantastic photos to put up, and Blogger won't let me. So I am giving up for now.
If you come over today, we'll be out back in the pool.
