Our backyard is completely shaded...in the morning. We decided to play outside after naps yesterday & I got immediate complaints that the slides were too hot. I had the great idea to get the water hose & cool them off. The kids(except for Presley--who was terrified of the hose) loved the idea. I then remembered seeing a baby pool when I was going through garage sale stuff. So, I blew it up, filled it up & told the kids to hop in.
They loved it! And being all wet makes you go down the slide SUPER fast! :) Think we may have to get a slip n slide this summer!
