This was from a couple of days ago, but it would work just fine for most days this week (and probably for most days the entire summer) since we're seeing a LOT of the pool in the heat that is South Carolina. I just love this shot...It really captures how thrilled Griffin is with our little inflatable pool. He is in rare form when he's playing around in the water, and it makes my heart glad. Cindy and I definitely caught some rays and absolutely drove our neighbors crazy making a ruckus with Griffin in the pool. I have found that the pool is also a fantastic containment device, corralling him into a limited area that he enjoys being in, so I can sit back and relax watching him play. This is a far cry from normal life inside the house, where the kid never stays in one place for more than two seconds and continues to find new and potentially dangerous things to place with/in/on/under. There is no sitting down and relaxing watching him play anywhere else in the world besides in this pool. And THAT is one of the many reasons why it is the best purchase a mom can make in the summer. Just do it, moms. Just buy a little pool. It is money well, well spent.
