Well... sorta.

Everyone's been having a pretty great summer, right? Dodgers are in first place, "Snakes on a Plane" didn't suck, and the heat hasn't been competely unbearable.

So to add to the sweetness of the season, Kaiser Permanente and the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks have joined together to keep the city swimming pools open for 13 additional days.

According to CBS-2, the $1.2 million donation by the HMO creatively called "Operation Splash" (hey they're an HMO, give em a break) will fund 15 local pools to remain open through Sept. 17. from 2-6 p.m. weekdays and 1-5 p.m. weekends. So instead of playing Marco Polo, we wanna hear some kids shouting Kaiser? Permanente!
