Remember the Hillbilly Post?

Do you remember the hillbilly post from a month or so ago? Well, we were at it again.


This is what happens when the kids are swimming in the pool while Daddy dismantles the swingset for the move.

The slide from the swingset made a perfect water slide.


By the time it was over, the little kids had lost their shirts and their britches. But I won't be sharing those pictures.

My kiddo would LOVE a pool/slide combo like that! I can't show this to him or he'll be bugging me for one!

What a perfect way for them to play in the water!!! Looks like they had a bunch of fun!!! My daughter is 9 and still has a ball just playing in the waterhose & sprinkler occasionally.

gorgeous pic, the little one getting out of the pool is a darling, well they all are, those are the times you'll remember....my kids had exactly the same, a plastic toddler slide into a blow up pool, they had a whale of a time....we'll be getting another blow up type pool this summer as we won't be affording a real in ground pool at the cottage for a while

It truly doesn't get any better than that! I am sure that will be a memory they will hold onto for the rest of their lives.

We used to have some Little Tikes slide that we always put into the plastic pool. And my kids are always looking for opportunities to get nekkid in the pool. They even like to swim in their jammies...

angie said...

Looks like so much fun. I'll bet the kids really enjoyed the reprieve after all the hustle of packing, too!

Hey Girl!
Guess what?

I'VE SENT YOU AN AWARD!!!

Love your blog and want the world to know and appreciate your talents!

Okay, I'm-a-dork. I didn't actually send it. You've got to come over to pick it up and then you can pass it on.

I embarrass myself sometimes.

Hi Kimba! Looks like they're having so much fun! What is it with little boys getting naked outside? I told my kids it was time to get ready to go swimming today and my youngest stripped down right in the back yard! I guess I should be grateful we have a fence around it!
