I have been woefully behind on the blog. I decided that to catch up I would just do a few posts that cover entire months. Here comes May. . .
Today we made some major progress on the pool. The sand was delivered and moved to the pool area. Then, this evening we had some friends and family over to help us put up the pool wall.
This morning we had the dirt dumpster delivered for our pool and by the end of the evening we had our first few wheelbarrows loaded.
Over this long Easter weekend we replaced our back fence, to be up to code for the pool. Our whole family and the Reagen kids came over to help with all the work that needed to be done.
Susan and I have been talking about getting a new, bigger pool. Last year we had a small, seasonal pool and we have been looking at something bigger. We have visited a few local stores, but weren’t happy with the pricing. Susan was undeterred and found a good deal from Home Depot. We measured the backyard at 12:30am and ordered a new pool! It is supposed to come in a couple of weeks and then we need to get to work getting the backyard ready.
We had a fun, busy Labor Day Weekend. The Mary and Casey were in town and it was the last weekend to have our pool up. On Friday we had everyone over for pizza and to watch the Valley vs Dowling football game. On Saturday we did our own thing during the day and then Mary and Casey hosted dinner at the Rafferty’s (their friends’ house). Sunday was the closing party for the pool.
