Beating the Heat

Monday, July 24, 2006 5 Comments A+ a-

It has been soooooo hot lately and so we decided to run to Walmart and buy a cheap, plastic swimming pool. It was a great way to help Devyn cool off and we had some enjoyable moments watching her play around. Now we just need to get some water toys, instead of the measuring cups.

I’m a coffee drinking, book reading, laundry procrastinating, husband and children loving, mess of a woman who believes that chips and salsa can fix anything. We have chickens running around the backyard, a mountain of dishes in the sink, and on any given morning, I have at least 10 school forms that need my signature or initials. It’s a crazy life {I prefer to call it controlled chaos}, but its ours.

It seems like they usually end up liking things that aren't toys better anyway. My kids love cups, droppers for measuring medicine, and squirt bottles.

I love her matching hat and suit. Very cute!

I'm with Wendy, whenever I buy my kids expensive toys, they end up playing with a cardboard box anyhow! The measuring cups look like fun!
Blessings!

Sweet, precious Devyn, we miss you SO much!! Make sure mommy and daddy give you big hugs and kisses from us...OK?

Jen, the kids always loved it when I would just lay in their little pool with them. It was perfect for when I was pregnant, just like you girlie!

We are counting the days on the calendar to see you all.

Love you
Colleen, Cole, Christiana & Callen

I just love these pictures of Devyn in the pool! She's so darned cute!

Funny thing about pool toys. We have a swimming pool and we've purchased various toys for Snuggle Bug to play with (water balls, little fish that squirt water, neon colored diving rings, etc.). Well, last weekend we had a couple of friends over for dinner and a dip in the pool. They have their own pool but no toys (they don't have kids at this point). They had so much fun playing with Snuggle Bug's toys and we had to promise to bring some the next time we came over to their house for dinner and a dip in the pool! :)

Pool toys are fun! Go back and get Devyn some. :)
