It’s Hot Out! Pool Is Open!
The long awaited 2014 grand opening of my pool has happened. We have temps in the 80’s and my pool is a perfect way to cool off! Look at that crystal clear, cold water! How much more inviting could it get? As you will see, pool time started out perfect but then something fishy happened.
Bailie had not seen my pool before, so she was in for her first time. She was apprehensive about it and didn’t want to do more than sit, but as you can see from the smile on her hound mug, she was liking it!
Mom thought it might help Bailie out to put some toys into the pool for her to play with. Bailie actually agreed and found it real fun to take toys out and put them back in with lots of splashing around. I was not happy because all the in and out she was doing got my water dirty, and then something fishy appeared!
I’m certainly not going to risk my life to get this fish out of the pool, so I called Bailie and told her to take care of it. In the video below, you will hear me howling some orders at Bailie about what to do with Mr. Fishy.
Bailie had great fun with wet Mr. Fishy, rescuing him, squishing him, shaking him, and running him around the yard. Even with all the rough play, he suffered no injuries whatsoever.
Mr. Fishy as we affectionately call him is a PrideBites toy that we received for a review which you can read by clicking here. One feature we love about PrideBites is that they can go in the washing machine, so Mom figured why not the pool too? Mr. Fishy is one busy fish! He traveled with us to Vegas, and has currently moved out of the house and is living in our yard. Stay tuned…he may end up in our washing machine one of these days if he wants to move back into the house which would probably trigger another post!
Heads Up, It’s Birthday Month!
Dust off those party hats and make sure to stop by later this month! Bailie will be turning 1 on June 17th, and Katie will be 12 on June 27th. I have generously offered to share my blog with each on them on their special day, AND they have each chosen a favorite product to giveaway to a lucky reader! Giveaways will each be announced and started on their respective birthdays. I will be baking (and posting my recipes) as well as planning their birthday parties, so it is guaranteed to be a festive second half of June around my house and blog!
