So far so good!
When we got outside, we quickly realized that Eli didn't think the pool was the same as the bath tub...mainly because the water in the pool was really cold! He cried so hard I had to take him out and calm him down. We decided to let the sun warm up the water for a little while, but 5 minutes later we realized that was going to take forever. Stephen went inside and filled a couple of big bowls with hot water and we added it to the pool. It warmed right up! Great thinking Daddy! We put Eli back in and success! He loved splashing around and playing with the toys! I think we will fill up the little pool way in advance next time so it won't be so cold. Live and learn.
Can't open my eyes, Mom...it's too bright!
