Kids are crazy. Catcher and Scout wanted to go to the pool today. It was 70 degrees. I was wearing Alex's fleece at the time of their pleads. Besides, perhaps accidentally on purpose, I forgot to pack my swimsuit. We decided on the next best thing to going to the pool--bringing the pool to us. There was an inflatable kiddie pool waiting for us in the garage, so this is how the latter part of the afternoon was spent.
P.S. In this scenario, adults can sit on the front porch sipping wine while children splash each other and wear themselves out.
Pay close attention to this next group of pictures. I like to call them Tillie in the Background:
This is Tillie Kissing a Concrete Dog:
Tillie has a love/hate relationship with the water right now. She loves watching Catcher and Scout goof around in it, but she hates getting in herself. So she kissed the dog and hung out with me on the front porch while the crazies got a little crazier.
This photo was taken just before the crazy train got to town...
