NO! It's not a puppy! Jason took pity on the kids (and the mama). It's supposed to be 103 here this week and we have no sprinklers to run thru where we live... So, Jason stopped at Toys R Us on the way home and bought a little pool. It'll work well for the rest of the summer and give us an idea to whether or not we want a bigger pool next year.
It's getting dark and the water from the cistern is COLD, but the kids are happily playing in the water while the pool fills!
