He showered all of his children with love.

“Come on Russ, lets go find your sister”
That is funny!
her name must be MEG hahaha
My dad’s in it!!!
OMG… I had that pool when I was a kid!
The one in front is trying to escape.
I want that pool.
Aww I want a pool like that!
Dad’s favorite kid? Right arm. Dad’s least favorite? Left.
I can’t believe someone actually built a frame around this pool.
I think the use of the word “built” is a little strong here…….
………and here begins the irony of our story. 45 years in the future it was unanimously voted on by the siblings that Skyla be the one to research and choose Dad’s nursing home.
They have enough water to fill the pool but haven’t watered the yard in months!
Love the railroad ties supporting the base of the pool.
The comments are funnier than the photo.
This is hilarious! I love it!!!
Digging the Scooby Doo pool!
Fanceeeeee-they have a wraparound redwood deck encircling their tin swimming pool. Also known as painted pine picnic benches.
They’re railroad ties, not picnic benches. MUCH smaller… this pool is probably 18″ deep at best… 😉
Unfortunately that is not photoshopped! That is my grandpa, and the reason you can’t see a sprayer in his hand is because we just put our thumbs over the end of the water hose to make them spray like that.
It’s weird that you have to explain that.
Didnt know they still made those pools!!
Whoooaaa… what’s causing that jet spray out the left side of the pool???
The other kid scrambling away after getting the same love squirt from dad
Bless her heart LOL
I wish I could shoot water out of my thumb.
That’s got to be one of the most obvious Photoshop jobs I’ve ever seen. That arm and water spray are clearly added. The forearm is bigger than the upper arm, and it makes the whole arm look unnaturally long. The sprayer must be really small to fit in the guy’s hand without showing, and the hose actually overlaps with the edge of the pool. Finally, the kid isn’t even responding to the water jet.
Love the sarcasm.
It was sarcasm?
Nope!!! That is my Dad and Sister and all my cousins and it is all real!! That is just summer fun in our family!!
Sorry, no: the angry but stoic look on her face, her physical isolation from the rest of the family and the hair plastered down from the stream is exactly why this photo works. Notice the pattern of the spray on the water, and consider the way dad’s arm is rotated, showing the narrow top of his bicep but the whole width of his elbow.
lol @ *oh*
are we breaking down the kennedy assassination?
There is no nozzle and he just has his finger over the end of the hose which creates a lovely spray. That picture is the real deal.
Who said Dad’s don’t have favorites…
“Okay, who else peed in the pool?”
BWAH HA HA! Totally something my Dad would do to my brother and I back in the day. I love it.
No Scooby snacks for Dad!
I had this same pool! LOVED IT!!!! Gotta love Scooby!
“Stop it! I’m just a cousin!”
how many kids can fit in a scooby doo swimming pool at once?!
A few minutes later, she got even with Dad when he suddenly felt the water around him get warmer……
AP (Los Angeles)
An LAPD spokesman reports that a woman identified only as “Skyla” entered the Hanna Barbera portion of Warner Brother’s Studios armed with multiple Super Soaker assult water rifles with no fewer than ten extra capacity tanks. She began firing almost randomly at workers until she located Scooby Doo and tempting him with a scooby snack brought him to all four knees with a constant stream water. SWAT team members eventually wrestled Skyla to the ground. Skyla’s father while insisting that he was NOT intoxicated could not explain his daughter’s actions but did go on to say that water always seemed to push her over the edge.
Bulwer-Lytton fiction writing contest lead: Score!
FTW! 🙂 Love it!
I remember someone having a pool like that…
Why is this awkward? It’s just a family having fun in the pool.
The man gleefully spraying the child in the head is hysterical AND awkward. That’s my opinion, anyway.
Little Miss Wet-Head is not having so much of the fun.
Bahaaahaaahaaahaaa! Little Miss Wet-Head lm*ao!
Oh, how many times have I been that kid (the one who “took the fun out of things,” you know, when she didn’t like being the butt of the jokes). Not that I didn’t laugh when it was my brothers’ turn to be “that kid”…
That is mean, I like that XD
spider man in the pool. Spidey sense is tingling
Dad, cut it out! You KNOW I have an ear infection!
nuthin’ like photographic proof of who’s not the favorite…
Lol, you’re soooo very right! Plus, her expression says it ALL!
Dad “Kids, we are ALL going to enjoy this nice little pool I found at a rummage sale and not complain that it isn’t like the Johnson’s in ground pool. Isn’t that right princess?”
Awwww…. Daddy’s had too much beer again.
