Anyway, because of the heat, it is hard for me to take the boys outside. I don't think Easton would care a bit about the heat, but I don't like being outside very long with Ty. Because of this, we have stayed inside a lot to keep cool. And Easton is a crazy ball of energy, being cooped up is NOT a good thing for him.
Needless to say, I have been going a bit crazy! The other problem is that our backyard is tiny and mostly rocks...not the best place for a 3 year old to play. I told Ace that we needed to get something for Easton to do. We bought a little pool for Easton to play in, and it is perfect!
Except for the fact that it takes up our entire porch, I figure it is so stinkin' hot what else are we going to use the porch for! It is a good size for Easton to play in and Ace and I can get in to cool down. The best part...Easton wears himself out so good, he is taking lovely afternoon naps!
So even though my backyard looks like a big blue mess, I don't care...I love this pool!
Cute little Ty
Even in the short time we have had the pool I see him getting better. He isn't nervous about swimming under the water, in fact he said "he loves swimming under the water"
I took a video towards the end of his swimming day, and you can tell he is completely out of breath, but he just won't stop!
