While I completely love our inflatable pool, I very much dislike the amount of time it takes to pump air into the darn thing. It takes 30 minutes with the electric air pump and that is annoying. The day before their birthday, Gracie and Lukie and I were lamenting how hot it was (okay, I was lamenting, they were playing) and they begged me to put the pool out. Not willing to go to all the trouble, I came up with a MacGyver-esque solution.
Thankfully, they loved it!
