And then we had a pool...

Yup, that's what you think it is! We now have a pool!

It's lopsided and dirty's ours.

Let me tell you something about a 'quick' and 'easy' set-up pool that you have no instructions for... it is NOT easy or quick!

We have so much junk in our yard and garage that we are constantly finding new things. As Jeremy was going through and throwing away some of 'the pile' last night, he found this pool. We couldn't have been happier although we were SURE it was going to have a huge hole or something in it. But no holes yet!

Eventually it will have to be drained and moved to a different area of the yard. We had intended on just stretching it out and filling the bottom with a little water so we could investigate for holes, but it ended up being an all night project with one draining already under out belt. I finished filling it this morning and although it's a little lopsided, I think it's fully functional at this point. It'll stay lopsided until we move it, we didn't pick a very level part of our yard to fill it.

Anyway, I'm so excited! I've been hoping for a pool and although it's a little smaller than what I had been hoping for - you can't beat free!


  1. Great family blog.
    I write and maintain a blog which I have entitled “Accordingtothebook” and I’d like to invite you to follow it. I didn’t see a follow widget on this site, but if you put one up...I will gladly follow you publicly as well.

  2. I am super jealous. If I had a pool, I would totally spend every extra minute in it. Baby belly and all! :)


You don't know just how lovely you are...thank you.
