SUMMER IT UP for the kiddies , it does not have to cost a fortune!

Hi there........come on lets mosey on to the back yard, As summer quickly approaches all the children will have the close of school and are ready for some summer fun!   We have a huge built in pool that is our neighborhood but its not always convenient to get to so our back yard is set up for lots of summer time fun......
 This is a great pool for kids and adults as well, It has a tube around the top that hold all the water in . The kids are loving it! Big Lots carries these pools at a very low price. The pool is great because it is not that deep but has ample room to swim. Hmmm they are giving me the peace sign so that must mean they plan on keeping the peace and being good listeners!



It's getting them out that is the challenge.

 We have a screened in lanai but it is located in the front part of the house so we also picked up this screen gazebo as well from Big Lots. We don't put fancy furniture in there and its far from a show gazebo but its a great place to sit and watch the kiddies swim and have a bite to eat. You can jazz up a screen house with a garland, some pretty plants.
 Mosquitos are out in full force and they also carry viruses so a screened in area is a must. We actually have a bbq back here, a playhouse and sandbox and a fire pit. A one stop summer party!




 I shop a bit at Save-a-Lot and many times when I leave I see these fruit crates that are free for the taking so I lined the crate with a heavy duty contractor bag put holes on the bottom and filled it with potting soil and these pretty flowers.
 
 

 All this because if the kids aren't happy either are we, you know how that goes .
 I am looking for a table that I can set out here to put gadgets on such as the icey maker, the popcorn machine etc

Sand pies anyone?
A break from the pool renders some sand pies
 
Come and join me as I share my fun!
