There's nothing like cool water to make a hot, July day in the Midwest a little more pleasant! Sharon brought this inflatable pool for her kids to enjoy, and they definitely did. The pool helped to keep the kids occupied for a couple of afternoons, which was nice so that the adults could get a much needed nap/quiet time!
One of the other outings Sharon and the kids took was to the cemetery to see my dad's grave. I've mentioned it before, but I absolutely love the cemetery where my dad is buried. It's so peaceful and such a pretty place. And it's close, too (less than five minutes away from my house). The kids always have lots of fun at the cemetery because it's a great place to take a walk and look at the different headstones. (Some of them are quite interesting!)
