How the kids are keeping cool

 I am so glad we purchased this pool/stock tank before the heat wave swept through the US.  Wow, it has been so great for the kids.  It keeps them from getting bored, and sitting around wanting to watch  movies or TV all day.  We don't have much for electronics in our house, but they would love to be couch potatoes if I let them :)  I just wanted to share a few pictures of our Saturday, keeping cool in the pool.  Even my husband joined them Friday evening after work. 

Big enough for all five, to keep cool on a hot summer day.  It's nothing fancy, but it does the trick, and they all seem to be having a lot of fun!

  1. What a great pool... look like so much fun!

    (By the way, I wonder if your mini dish you just bought is actually a refrigerator dish without the lid? I had never thought about using mine as a loaf dish... but what a great idea!)

    1. Ha! It probably is! I don't know much about those dishes, but couldn't believe it when I saw your collection, matching the one I had just bought. It works great btw, for a small loaf of bread :)

  2. Could you possibly tell me where you purchased your stock tank from?
