Hoping to save me from suiting up and trekking up the huge hill in the heat to our neighborhood pool every time we wanted to go for a swim, Addison and I decided to install our own pool in the backyard. An inflatable shark kiddie pool that sprays water of course!
Here's Inspector Addison's installation process from beginning to end:
(Thank heavens for battery powered air pumps :-)
She spent most of her time trying to open her mouth and drink the shooting streams of water. I spent most of my time trying to keep her on her feet while trying to stay dry myself. The latter didn't last long. Between trying to dodge a 5 year old manning the water missile, and avoiding random sprays of streaming water right at my rear, I gave in and joined in the festivities fully soaked in my clothes. It was a great time and we had a lot of fun. Especially the part where we came home and took a long nap from all of our exhaustion! We'll definitely be visiting that park again soon!
