Okay, the title is a bit misleading. Why? First, we didn’t get a REAL pool. Just a kiddie pool – but still a big one! Second, we didn’t just get it this weekend – we ordered it on Prime Day and are just finally using it because it’s been relatively cool the past few weekends!
With temps projected to be in the upper 80s to 90s this weekend, we knew it was finally time to blow it up and relax.
Here are a few highlights from the weekend:
Friday night included homemade pizza! B and FW made some pizza and we ended up eating it on the porch.
Saturday morning, B and FW went to get donuts and I stayed in bed (see aforementioned comment about feeling sick). When I did finally get up, I hung out with LM on the porch, made some cookies with FW and then we chilled in the pool.
Saturday night, we already had tickets to the Indians game, so B, FW and I went downtown to cheer on the Tribe (Grandma came over to babysit LM).
It was fun to hang out with just the three of us and I know FW enjoyed being the center of attention for a little bit.
Sunday was another pool day! This time, we invited Dave, Anson and their kids Celia and Maura over for some fun in the sun. We enjoyed lunch, pool time and some wagon rides.
Sunday ended – as usual – with dinner at B’s parents’ house. FW got in some good cousin time, playing games (including dominoes!).
Notice anything missing from our usual weekend activities? A run! I woke up feeling sick Saturday, do I played it pretty low key and only got in a few walls (which tired me out). Hopefully I’ll be feeling better soon!
Some questions for you:
- Do you have a pool?
- Do you have any weekend traditions?

Pool & wagon rides. Nothing better
Hope you’re feeling better
I have so many amazing memories of our kiddie pool! Enjoy!
That is such a luxurious kiddie pool! It looks liked it would hold a full size adult float. I remember the tiny plastic ones from years ago. I’m sure it will be enjoyed for many summers. I hope you feel better soon. Thanks for linking!
The pool is the only place I want to be when it hits the upper 80’s and 90’s! Isn’t a kiddie pool the best?! Looks like your little man loves it. The kids and I have a kiddie pool in the backyard for the morning and then go to the city pool when it opens in the afternoon. Gotta soak up this pool time before winter comes!!!
