I apologize to the environment about the amount of water we are wasting! I will bathe my children in this to help recoup the water loss.
On to the mistake...while I was
Yup, water and mud. A boy's dream. The water on the left is what used to be "the hole." That sucker is deep and I'm scared to find out what is at the bottom!
The water on the right is just how our lovely backyard slopes and where the water pools when it rains. The boys have blocked the drainage out to the street to keep the water in. They find it absurd that I would want the water to drain.
As I type this I hear BIG splashed of water going on. Think when a grown up cannon balls into the pool. Yup those kind of splashes.
