After the longest winter of all time, signs of life are finally starting to emerge in Indiana. Trees are getting green and temperatures are rising (a little) which means soon it’ll be time to inflate those kiddie pools and waste the afternoon splish splashin’ away.

But if you live at our house, you have to remember to put the pool away when you’re done. “Why?” you might ask. Because racoons love the crap out of those things. Last summer, we had a raccoon that was using the pool more than our daughter. And his stupid little raccoon claws ended up putting holes in the pool.

It’s too bad real life Olive doesn’t go outside. She might have made him face justice. Or been beaten by a raccoon; I’m not sure what their skill level is in brawling.
