You know how I know it's summer? When I sweep the kitchen floor, some of my dirt pile gets up and walks away. Ants. Ants mean summer.
You know what else means summer? Eating dinner on the deck and hoping for a giant rainstorm to blow in and clean up all the evidence before we get more ants. Especially when SOMEONE keeps spilling his lemonade (cough cough HARRISON cough cough).
But TONIGHT, I want to discuss a third sign of summer: our Backyard Ocean backyard oasis. When Backyard Ocean emailed me to see if I would like some awesome backyard inflatables in exchange for a blog post review, I wasted no time saying YES, PLEASE.
You know we love to swim. Ever since I was a little girl, summer is a pool membership at a country club and a lot of time to lie on a chaise. The kids love this, too, don't get me wrong, but there is a special kind of fun that comes from filling a pool with ice cold hose water and horsing around until you're pruney.
And somebody needs to explain this to Dorothy, because she could not handle the ice cold hose water.
The boys? COULD NOT HAVE LOVED the 3-D pool and 3-D goggles, the ride on whale, or the basketball/volleyball/water polo set more.
Jack was literally jumping for joy:
