OK so I totally took zero pictures of the real stage 2. Putting up the pool and the liner while filling it with water was a beast of a job. Thank the good lord for highly muscled men in my family because wow it was hard! But...the pool is up.
So here are the next steps, my birthday present, a concrete patio from my parents. Dad is a co-owner in a concrete company - so that's a sweet deal! Lastly, building the deck. I am highly excited about the concrete pad & deck because right now sand keeps getting drug into the house and I loathe sand.
Uncle Doug was rocking a giant straw hat.
Dad was rocking his bandana.
The pool looks beautiful & I still can't believe it was FREE. Bless the man that gave it to us because the kids LOVE it! We used to have a pool when I was growing up, and it was the best thing ever. We swam all day & played constantly outside.
To say it was hot is an understatement. Sweat was everywhere!
The kids supervised the men.
The concrete pad is done! Please note Uncle Dougs new hat - a wet towel. He kills me that man!
This afternoon they are hoping to build the deck so we have a real way in and out of the pool! Then my job starts - landscaping & moving patio furniture from the walkout basement to the upstairs so we have a nice place to lounge!
Thank you Dad, Uncle Doug, Shane, Kylie, Jade, Zac, Abbie, Maggie, Mom, & Ruff for your help. I means the world to us!
Next up, hopefully a beautiful finished back yard!
