finally got the kiddos a four foot hard plastic kiddy pool for seven bucks at freddy's. it was an upgrade from the tiny rubbermaid clear plastic storage bin that they would squeeze into together, barely fitting the both of them, not deep enough to even float. once i dropped them in, it took those duckers a minute to get acclimated to their new deluxe tub, complete with graphics of a cartoon duck in scuba gear holding a cupcake. some tasty chopped chard in the water distracted them enough, they nibbled away contentedly...and soon they were making whirlpools, splashing and dipping and carrying on like good ducks do. i sat and laughed heartily, watching for what seemed like hours, tired but never tiring of their antics. best. entertainment. ever.
