Summer officially starts this Saturday, and just for fun, I let myself do a little Internet “window shopping” for the ultimate summer backyard escape. I’m not going to lie, I got a little out of hand. When I fantasy shop, I fantasy shop BIG.

The first thing I’d get is this gigantic, inflatable water slide/pool thing. It’s pretty much the best thing I’ve ever seen in my entire life. Never mind my kids, I want to play on this!

But I don’t feel left out if they want to hog the water park, because I’ll be over on my magical-canopied-nap-island o’ bliss.

Meanwhile, my husband will be manning the barbecue. But he won’t be cleaning it. Nope, because we have ROBOTS FOR THAT.

We’ll blast some Don Ho on these amazing Tiki Speakers

And we’ll continue the island theme with this bubble blowing tiki sculpture

At night, we’d pull out this Inflatable Movie Screen and watch movies

Or maybe we’d just play Inflatable Twister

And if you add all those things up, it comes to approximately…a billion dollars.
