Playgroup, pool party, pizza!

Our turn to host playgroup! I set up a tent with big tubs of water with plastic ocean animals, a tub of fake snow (that I learned was made from the same gel inside diapers) with plastic arctic animals, and lots of buckets and towels. The babies played under the tent, the big kids splashed and sang and floated in the pool, and the moms got in and cooled off too. I think every mom should have their kids in a good playgroup- they get a chance to socialize in a group setting, haha and the kids do too!:) Now that it is in the 90s consistently, we don't go a single day without heading to the pool- sometimes as an appetizer to breakfast or a dessert to dinner. The kids' tanlines are the envy of sunbathers everywhere, and their bathing suit shaped white stripes we glimpse in the bathtub show their winter color. After we swam a long while, we made our own pizzas and had a picnic in the shade with popsicles for dessert.
