Kids and sand piles..........

Somehow, we adults forget what was really fun back in the day. We over look the simple things in life....I was once told about the KISS method. Lee Laurie said that I knew all about that...ha. No, I mean the K.I.S.S. method. It stands for "Keep It Simple Stupid" or you can just drop the last S or make it stand for whatever you want....Stevie, Suzy, Sam.....I know, I know, you get the picture. Well, the children and Lee Laurie had been after me to set the pool up....every day.... I had a friend deliver some sand(I wanted to do it right this year) to level the ground and make the bottom a little better than last years bottom.

Hailey and Garrett were so excited about the sand they forgot for a moment about the pool. Getting back to my original thought.....we can buy the WII-hoos, Nintendo DS-hoos, Dell laptop-hoos, tv/dvd player-hoos and tons of toy-hoos......but give a kid a dirt pile, a sand pile and they will play and play and play.....woo-hoo!!
Well, the pool is set up and they have been playing/swimming in it and playing in the sand that is around the outside of the pool. We did...well to us a smart thing....we do not turn the heater on to the hot tub thus keeping the water cool for us and we let them play in the pool.

I can recall playing in the sandboxes when I was young. Then I had children and the most fun playing with them. I bought them a kiddie pool every year when they were young and don't you know I took my fanny and got in that pool right along side them. We had a ball playing with such innocense!!

I'm so glad that y'all got the pool put up. Well...I've gotten in it for 2 days now! I think that it is really helping my legs a lot! They do have a blast in it, don't they? I'm glad the water was warmer today!

I wanta pool... It would look funny on our property. I can tell tammy to design it and it would look like it belonged there. Speaking of sand...it reminds me of being a kid. I would let my imagination get away with me. Build an elaborate castle or a superhighway. Bring my tonka trucks and tonka payloader, dump truck, grader..the whole lot of it. Must have the cars to travel the roads... whoops almost got carried away. Thanks for visiting my blog... Be well all
