Finally, the warmer weather is HERE! I do so love having my nappy times outdoors where I can watch the Bird Channel. Thankfully, I've renovated the yard with some pops of color to refresh my favorite nap spots. Here are my poolside lounge chairs with a bright, cheery fabric and accent pillows to coordinate with our new Marine Blue diving board!

Hope your yard is ready for YOUR summer! If not, have your human change it!
