makeshift-ing...

if you've been reading this blog for awhile, you might recall that i dream of having a vintage, claw-footed bathtub. i actually want two--one in my house, and one in my yard. for hot days such as the days we've been having. but they're pricey and hard to come by, so--in fairness to my babies--i might actually try to score a used (plast-tastic) kiddie pool on craigslist this summer. you know, to adequately provide them with the summer sweetness of splashing around in a pool filled with ice-cold hose water. until then, however, a cookie sheet will have to do. don't laugh--they loved every second of it!




good times, no?

Very, very good times! Love the baking sheet! We use the sink a lot since we don't even have a tub in our house - just a shower. Outside, we have a plastic baby pool that has seen its' $4's worth of use many times over;) Big buckets work well, too!

For kids your size, something like this would see you through the summer and I am sure you can find used (and cheap) in your area:

Those are the greatest pictures!!! When my kids were little we would fill up the family canoe in the yard or on the back deck if we couldn't get to the river or if the kids were to small to take to the river in the canoe and play for a few days...ahhhh I love summer!
