Bustin' out the pool!

I got this cute dragon pool on clearance
at the end of last summer.
It was about $10 at Target.

I feel better about spending that much
b/c destruction is inevitable w/ triplets.

The only thing that I don't like
is the slide b/c it won't say down.
I get it.
Full of air.
Floats on water.

Not a good combo.
Any time they wanted to go down the slide,
they needed help from someone.

Taylor & Monty stopped by so Taylor got to do the honors.
The kids had fun.
BUT, somewhere along the way,
we picked up a rash.

AND...our 1st summer cold.

I don't think I've seen our trio run so fast!

Daddy was cheering them on.
It was full steam ahead!

This sweet face sums up how much fun they were having.

On the flip side,
let me tell you it is quite the undertaking
to get them ready to go outside.
Sunscreen, repellent, bathing suits, water shoes,
fill up the pool, get the towels, make sure to have water ready,
yada, yada, yada...

Around these here parts,
if you aren't wearing mosquito repellent,
you will get eaten alive.

Bullfrog sunscreen & repellent it is for us.
And it works.
Now I just need to figure out where the rash came from.
So weird.

It was a wonderful day,
especially since Daddy was smoking a brisket.
That was the.yummiest.ever.

Happy Memorial Day...
and for those that have served & lost their lives,

We had one last year with the same kind of slide and they had trouble with it too. We ended up just pulling their little plastic slide over and that worked much better. Glad y'all enjoyed the day!
