Summer Checklist – Update #5

It’s hot. It’s really hot. Now, I’m not complaining. Not at all. I love the summer. I love the heat. I don’t really love the humidity but I would much rather have humidity and heat than snow and freezing temperatures. Ew.

As we all know, one of the best things to do when the summer is in full summer-mode is to go to the pool. Yay! Pool!


Our neighborhood’s pool is great for families. There is a large pool where they do swimming lessons and where the swim team has meets. There is a big slide, too. However, one of the best qualities of our pool is that there is a separate 0’0″ entry pool for little kids. It is only 2′ (I think) at the deepest point. And big girls’ favorite part is that there is a giant mushroom that functions like a waterfall in the middle of the pool.
