Kids Get a Pool!

This past week I stayed over at my sister and BIL's house watching the three kids!  On Monday, it was 90 degrees (unusually hot for Hawaii and especially where we live in the mountains).  We saw a Toys R Us ad that had pools for 50% off, so we decided to go get a pool to help cool off!  Well, I had no idea that the pool I bought was so huge until we got the pieces out of the box and starting putting it together!!

Day 1

Here we are in the backyard trying to put the pool together in the 90 degree heat!  Craig is a good helper and you can see what kind of a helper Jacie is!  We got this far and had to take a break until later in the afternoon when it cooled off a bit.  


There were what seemed like a bazzalion pieces!


Jacie put on her swim suit as soon as we got home from Toys R Us.  I think she thought we were going to pull the pool out of the box, blow it up, and jump in (I think I did too!).


At least she was very patient (and cute as always)!


Day 2

Got the pool set up and now to fill it up with water.  That took several, several hours with one hose! 


Day 3

We finally got the pool filled and wouldn't you know it, it was an overcast and windy day.   Oh well, that wasn't keeping the kids out of the pool.  I even got in and we had a blast.  From left to bottom, Marisa (Alexa's friend), Jacie, Craig, and Alexa!. 


Have a great weekend!  You know where I'll be!!
