I'll be honest with you. I'm having an incredibly hard time focusing at work today. With temperatures creeping toward a record high, I'm counting down the hours until we can blow this popsicle stand and head up to Sandy Point!

In 2015, Taylor Swift and then boyfriend, Calvin Harris ushered in an era of over the top pool and river floats that only seems to get more extravagant as the years go on. I'm a sucker for these gawdy, Instagram worthy summer toys and that's why last year, one of my best girlfriends and I invested in an oversized Flamingo Party Island. It comes complete with a cooler for drinks/snacks and enough seating for six of us. We're taking it out to the lake this afternoon.

I can't lie. We actually own this one. My husband won it in a celebrity bull riding competition at the Idaho Center a few years ago and we finally blew it up for a pool party last year. The kids were the first ones to have at it and couldn't stay on it to save their lives. Of course, at that point the adults started to get curious to see if it was really as difficult to master as the kids made it appear. Next thing you knew there was a line on the pool deck to try to take it on. This one is worth the investment. It will give you hours and hours of giggles!

4. Friends Door Pool Float $34.99
