This is what I think that Jackson thinks it is called anyway, a "kitty" pool. Actually we were at the hardware store on Saturday and we picked up a kiddie pool. They loved it, in case there was any doubt. We ended up going out to dinner on Saturday, after a long day of working on store projects, and didn't play in the new pool until Sunday. It entirely occupied their playtime on Sunday and Monday, as the photos demonstrate:
The dry run, and showing Sam the new pool. They're pretty sure he'll like it too.Changing into swimsuits and filling it with water. As much as they like the new pool, it's pretty much water that they love, unconditionally. Taking bucketfuls of water from your new pool and making a mud puddle is really just as fun to play in. In case you're wondering just how much they love the new pool, this picture was taken after dark on Monday night, when Jackson and Caroline decided to put their swimming suits back on and play in the pool again. It's quite cold out, but they're in the water again. Dave, a friend of Becky's who joins us regularly for Monday Night Dinner, was kind enough to watch them splash outside. Note that he had jeans and a sweatshirt on. The kiddie pool has certainly been a success at our home. It's is a reminder of my own childhood to watch the joy they get out of playing in the water. Kids are amazing.
