Day off

I got a little pool from someone this weekend and we set it up yesterday.
I didn't get much sleep last night and anticipating a bad headache I asked for the day off. [I am very happy to work part time for Western Wats. They are incredibly accommodating of my schedule and there are some amazingly fun and friendly people to work with. Not only that, but I like the work.]

Anyway, I got the day to hang out and relax, and found out that my parents had planned to have a whole bunch of kids over. No problem, because Felix loves having lots of kids around.

Besides the new (to us) little round pool, we set up my other little pool and the kids had a ball playing all over the back yard. My parents even set up a slide into one of the pools.

When the kids were all done playing in the pools, they spent some time picking cherries and eating them. Some kids even took their bucket of cherries back to the pool. Felix and I had fun in the pools and at the cherry tree, and we even talked Brent into coming out for a bit.

Although it was a busy day with about 10 little kids running around, it was also very fun. That is my idea of a day off.

Oh, man! Heather, I'm so behind on what's going on with your little family. I'm so sorry about Felix being in the hospital again. How awful. I'm glad he's feeling better and you guys were able to have some much deserved fun. Hope you and Brent are well, too!
