Iced Coffee in the Wading Pool Time
You know what time it is, don’t you? The sweat is rolling down your back, the kids have been traipsing dry grass bits in and out of the house faster than you can vacuum them up, bickering seems to be the favored form of communication…it’s time for a coffee break. An iced coffee break.
First you need some tall glasses and some little ones for the kids. Fill them with ice. Add chocolate syrup liberally. Fill the adult glasses halfway to three-quarters of the way with cold coffee and then the rest of the way with ice-cold milk. The kids get just milk and chocolate and maybe a smidge of coffee if they beg hard enough.
Then dump out the kiddie pool and refill with warm hose water that has been baking in the sun.
I guarantee it will cure the summertime irrititus.

it’s always a party at your house!!
You are so fun! Now, I really want to have some iced coffee… Really bad. Too bad I don’t have any chocolate syrup or even any cocoa powder to make some with. :(
I want iced coffee in the pool. Instead I am 5 months pregnant and moving in the heat. :(
Your life is so completely opposite of mine (in a good way!) and every time I read a post, I feel like it’s an adventure. Thanks for my daily escape!
Can I borrow some of your warm hose water for a few days? I could really use some.
Eh, at least I’ll have iced coffee.

An excellent idea!!
You’re So Rad!!! I want to shrink and be a kid blessed by your imagination!!
It definitely is that time of year. My coffee switched to iced this week and the pool is definitely full of water and children :) Happy Summer!
and HAPPY BIRTHDAY too!! :) :) :) :)
I do realize I’m a week early with wishes, just getting into the mood :P
Looks so nice and warm, just perfect for a dip in a wading pool. Our weather has been surprisingly rainy for this time of year. Yesterday we actually had thunderstorms! Luckily for us though it was after our trip to the park.
Lovely all of it!! And your laugh in the second pool photo… priceless…
