I totally caved

I was NOT going to buy my kids a pool this summer. Sprinklers are fine. Sprinklers are fun. Emma has swimming lessons coming up in a couple of weeks. Then we went to Target. That is such a dangerous store for me. I not only bought a pool, I bought this:

Let me just tell you one thing. That picture is highly misleading. Those kids must have been shrunk in the dryer or something because when you put those side pieces onto the pool, there is maybe one foot between them. The kids loved it though.

I don't have any pictures yet of the real thing, I was too busy keeping slippery children from falling off the side of the stairs/slides to take pictures. But they know what they're doing now, so I'll get some this afternoon. Remind me not to go to Target again anytime soon, I can't afford it!

Oh TOO funny. I was at Target yesterday and debated and debated on buying that very same pool!! I ended up getting a giant size one. I'll try to post pictures on my blog later today!

LOL. I got a "Whale" at BB&B for Zo last year. She loves it as does her brother. Now I have to get busy cleaning up the back yard so we can put it up. Can't wait to see pics of your kids in it.

This looks so cool! You are such a good mom! Somehow the pictures never are like the real thing!
