But the good news is that you can now dump the water out of the kiddie pool and do this:
Fill it with sand. Ok, I admit I am a wound a bit too tight to handle sand this close to the house. I hate sand in the house. HATE it. I love sand under my feet when and only when I am at the beach. I love to be barefoot and hate dirty feet. I know, I am insane. So I came up with a fanstasic Idea.
One large green mat to brush the sand off the feet when they step out of the sand pool.
