Beating the Heat

Our pool isn't working...again...which is really convenient considering it has been in the 100s for the last two weeks and it seems like it will continue ...oh...until October. (Have I mentioned I love summer?) In order to beat the heat, I bought a baby pool.

A few things I wish I had known BEFORE buying the pool.

1) Do not buy an inflatable baby pool. They are REALLY annoying. I thought the inflatable one would be great because "the-rainforest-like-canopy" would provide shade and it would be easy to store but it doesn't and it's not. Not to mention, you have to constantly add air. It could quite possibly be one of the most annoying things in the world...aside from 100 degree temperatures, of course.

2) Make sure you inflate said baby pool OUTSIDE. (I wish I had realized that before I nearly passed out inflating the damn thing!)

Jury is still out on what Grace thinks.

I think there is one thing that's worse than the 100 degree weather here - 100 degrees in Seattle where most people don't have A/C. Lena watched the video of Grace with me and said she is "soooo cute!"
