You can call us outdoorsy. We camp, swim, and generally choose the outside over the inside when it is warm as a family. On the weekends this spring our deck became where we did everything. As it got too warn we pretty much live at the pool. I prefer joining the pool to having one although I live on a steep hill and a pool would never happen. Belonging to the pool gives us friends, activities, and the best 4th of July every year. We plan for the 4th for weeks. We get a menu together, gather whatever friends want to join us, and get to the pool super early to secure a spot. The pool provides free hot dogs and birch beer and races of various sorts that are a complete throwback to another era.
I spent time today jumping off the diving board with the kids, competing in the water balloon toss. Our friends are arriving and I think my kids need a second coat of sunscreen already. I get to listen to cheesy pop music like, I’m Sexy and I Know It. It’s a throwback to the 1950′s except I can blog from a picnic table. Its nice. I am so lucky.
I hope anyone who reads this has as wonderful a day as we are having and gets to at least gets to be in a tug of war and a potato sack race.
