About a month ago, I swore that the slip n' slide was the best money I would spend all summer. I was so wrong. The best money I've spent all summer was on the $59 (big sale!) pool we put up in the back yard last week. It is 10 feet wide so it is big enough for everyone to play in together. We have been spending all day every day in this pool. For some reason, when I throw all my kids in water, they all get along. They don't complain and they have FUN! (And they get worn out and take naps! Yippee!) Swimming is the great equalizer in our home. We've had some wonderful family time in there. Sadie even told me that I was the best mom in the world for getting them a pool. I'll take that!
