Big Top

We recently purchased a huge outdoor umbrella to provide some shade on our otherwise shadeless back patio. In theory we can move this by the pool to provide shade for Kelsey while she's in the water over the summer. For now it gives us an opportunity to eat at our patio table during the day, and the screen is useful for nights when there are mosquitoes out. It swivels 360 degrees and also Kelsey and I decided to take advantage of it the other day for snack time. I put a comforter on the ground and then maneuvered the umbrella around to give Kelsey good coverage (and me a little sun) and we both just hung out. It was so nice...I'm very glad we made this purchase

I have been looking around for just such a thing for my backyard. We get the west sun so it is really hard to sit out there in the afternoon or go in the pool with so much sun. It's not a bad price either. I have to check it out. Thanks!

I am SOOO jealous of ya'll donw in Florida taking in the sun, wearing shorts and swimming outside! It should be warm enough for that in Minnesota about August! Kelsey is getting to be so big!! It's amazing how quickly time flies by. Emma is now completely potty trained and will be starting preschool in the fall!
