Ah me. It is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, the midsummer night’s dream. What do I have for you, what best represents this time of year here at Low House? A baby girl in an embroidered dress with a wreath of flowers in her hair? Well, no. Dreamy as that is, it isn’t how we do it here. We do this:


An 8′ x 8′ inflatable kiddie pool. We have a chlorine tablet in a bobber, a skimmer, and a small filter to run when need be. Mimi and I have been in it every afternoon this week and will be in it constantly until mid-September, probably. As long as the days are in the 80s or higher, we’ll be there. I have a TAN!

  1. what is the brand name of the pool you got?, I have a grandson and he is over at
    our house everyday and thought this would be wonderful for him on those hot days!

  2. It’s from Sam’s Club and their website says it is made by “Deluxe Family Pools”. Last year we had a rectangular one from Intex that was just as good. I have spotted it at Target this year.
