Kiddy Pools

This is what happens when I am too lazy to sunscreen four kids, myself and lug all the gear to the pool... The best parts- I can get something done while they are having fun, and I don't have to sunscreen them since it is in the shade- bonus!!!
As you can see I was even too tired to put Kamryn in her swimsuit. I think the real reason was that I can't get enough of her chubby roles. The bum gets me every time.

Kamryn has a fascination with goggles. She loves to wear them, which makes us roll on the floor, but she loves to toss them in the water even more.
This is a normal scene at the pool...

My friend taught me the marvelous trick of creating your own seat side kiddy pool! I now lug my cooler to the pool.

I love the mini pool idea! I'll have to remember that.

Fun! I wandered over to your blog from Jackie Shafer's because I thought I had seen your name in the comments on my other good friend, Brittany Weiler's, blog. Looks like you know both of them, and have really good taste in friends:) Then I saw you live near us, we're in Durham. Anyway, just thought I'd say hi so that in the event we run into each other someday i can reference this:) Chelsey Gertsch

We need to get a kiddie pool. We have a backyard, we just don't use it when it's hot... anyway, I saw your comment about the t-shirt quilt. The only advice with the old shirts is that I did get the iron-on stuff so I could sew them more easily. Don't get the self-adhesive kind because it melts if you are trying to iron down the seams after you sew them together. Good luck!

Holy cow- I've flown with three but flying with four! That adds to the adventure just a bit :)(ah. the things we do when we live far far away from family) You are woman! way to go.
