Today Kate and I went to Walmart and picked up $11.97 worth of fun - a swimming pool for her. It's 6' across and pretty much the perfect size for her to play and Mommy to sit and soak up the sun with her. I set it up on the concrete patio so I didn't have to worry about the grass and stuff because let's face it - I am not going to go outside and empty it, move it, and refill it every few days. I had to open the pool as soon as we got home and about 30 minutes later we were splashing and playing together. Of course we had to put every ball, garden toy and frisbee that were floating around the backyard in the water.
