Amusement Is In The Eye Of The Beholder

We bought a new pool. Before you get excited and invite yourselves over for the pool party - it's more of an oversized kiddie pool. It's one of those ones that you blow up the rim and fill it up with water.

Since it's basically just a glorified rubber bowl filled with water, it is important to make sure that it is on level ground. We didn't believe that the first year we had one.

Learn from our mistake. Rubber bowls full of water? They ROLL. Our cup runneth over. And the neighbors will not be amused.

So this time Dave is digging out the ground in an effort to make it as level as possible. Jamie has been "helping".

Today while Dave was bent over digging Jamie poured a handful of sand down his shirt collar.

Because he was bored.

I'm just happy I'm not his only victim.

Hehehe, WTG Jamie!

Those pools are nice, but yeah you have to know where to put it, our friends leveled it out with sand. My brother offered us theirs this summer, but we said no. We have enough trouble trying to level the ice rink in the yard in the winter and that's only a few inches of water!

We have one from Target, a little 5' diameter job, and even our yard is on a bit of a slope so Melody can go from knees deep to barely covers her toes in half a rotation. And somehow John always "forgets" to empty the pool so our grass is dying in large circular patches around the yard - I try to move it around to prevent this. :-)
