It’s been really hot in the south lately, and what better way to cool off than in the pool! Not me of course but the kiddies. My daughter called and told me recently that she bought one for the backyard because it was too hard for one person to take a toddler and a nine month old to a real pool alone. Then when I was in Texas I got the same kind of pool for the kids there, they have a new baby too so something for the backyard works great. I remember well those days of having toddlers at home! I think we had blue backyard pools that looked just about like these.

TX kids

NC kids….but soon to be MS kids! Katelyn keeps telling me on the phone that she’s moving to Mis’sippi!

I might just have to go buy one of these pools for my house/backyard just in case any of these cuties come to visit me! :

(p.s. for me, so I will have it written down somewhere 🙂
I was talking to Kathryn on the phone today and Katelyn came into the room so she got on and talked briefly, very quietly. Kathryn says she gets really quiet when she talks on the phone and nods her head a lot. She called back 2 more times after that because she figured out how to dial the cell phone herself! I made one more phone call to them about a bible study book I was sending when Kathryn told me that after the last conversation I had with Katelyn she brought the cell phone to her mama and said she wanted to call me again. Kat told her she’d talked to me 3 times and that was enough but Katelyn told her, “I want to call Deedee 6 times!”
Kids, too cute some days!)

    We have one of those, too. Ours is purple. Scamp loves to tlak on the phone, too. SHe says, “I wanna call Nana.” Today, she called her Nana and her aunt Ju Ju. She blabs on and on for a couple of minutes, then she’s done.

    My sister and I had one of those kind of pools 40 years ago, and my own little brood had them also! What absolutely adorable pictures.
    Thanks for sharing-they brought a smile to my face.
