We joined the pool again this year. We've been twice now and so far, Andy's favorite part is the Little Tykes playhouse that's about 8 years old and faded in the baby pool area. For what the pool costs, we could have bought a new play house and had some really nice dinners out. I think he's afraid of the pool. Either that or the cold water freaks him out. New treats this week - he can now say "kitty cat" and mean it. He also has figured out that unrolling all the toilet paper is good fun.
Meanwhile, it's true, kids do read Perez as much as adults.
