I don't know what it's like where you live, but it's HOT here in west TN. It's ridiculously hot. We haven't been playing outside during the day very much the past week or so because frankly I just don't have the energy to keep layering on the sunscreen and make sure we all stay adequately hydrated. So Sullivan's awesome pirate ship pool has been a bit lonely to say the least. We did let him get in the other night and swim though and that was a hit.
