Skoopi can't wait either. She loves the Wading Area. When I was AK's age, we built a pool in our backyard and my neighbor friend and I spent days running around the pool just like this.
My older brothers could not WAIT to skateboard in the pool during the concrete phase. As soon as the concrete was dry, they schemed to get my mom out of the house. They even tried to lure my mom out of the house by the, "Mom! We are out of milk!" (I believe they poured the milk down the sink.) The minute my mom pulled out of the driveway, my brothers were skateboarding in the pool. I didn't have a skateboard, so I resorted to roller skates... bad idea. Then I tried my banana-seat rainbow Huffy bike complete with training wheels. Bad idea again, but at least I tried!
