Just Tryin' To Beat the Heat

Peanut Head, Thing 1, and Thing 2 have been spending a lot of time in the pool these days. I have too, but you won't be seeing a picture of me in my bathing suit, no siree.

At the end of last summer we got one of these funky looking blow up pools and, I have to tell you, it was a good buy. Even if we accidentally popped it today, which we won't, it would still be worth it. Not only are they just plain refreshing to go into when it's 100 degrees outside, they are fascinating to behold.

The physics behind these puppies are amazing. You must have a level surface to set one up, otherwise it will roll right out of your yard. Not kidding. I relate it to muffin top on my jeans. Now you skinny girls out there (and guys, I suppose) have no idea what I'm talking about, but when you have extra flesh and it oozes over the top of your waistband, that's a muffin top. When your jeans are particularly tight, the muffin top causes your waist band to roll. Well, that's sort of how these pools start to roll when gravity is working more towards one end. Don't underestimate the power of physics.

When we are in the pool with the girls, we spend most of our time tossing them to and fro. There's no chillin' for us, they won't allow it. "Throw me head first this time. I want to do a cartwheel." Ugh, it makes me tired just thinking about it.

Here Peanut Head is starting to think about sinking the boat. His passengers are unsuspecting.

Things overboard!

Got pool?
